Alexander a piano and an audience for a great night.
With his old-school sound and dapper demeanor, you would never guess that “piano man” Alexander is only 21 years old. Citing Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, and Nat King Cole as his influences, Alex uses his strong, smooth tone and old-school character to stand out among up-and-coming singers his age. Like all notorious lounge singers, Alex isn’t simply a talented vocalist but also aims to keep his audience entertained. Over a decade of performing has allowed him to develop this skill and charm his audience every time he steps on stage.
Alexander found his love of music at his family home in Coniston, New South Wales when his mother bought him an old ragtime piano. From the moment he sat down in front of the keys, he knew that he was destined to perform. Once he reached high school, he started studying music and added singing to his repertoire.
In 2013, Alex had his biggest performance yet, singing “Candle in the Wind” by Elton John to a crowd of 20,000 over 4 nights. At 16, Alexander organized Christmas Carols in Wollongong, a nearby city, to raise money for the “Disability Trust” and within the first two years had raised thousands for the organization with numerous in attendance. Five years of performing these carols helped develop Alex’s character and build his confidence on stage, turning him into the performer he is today.
New single out now
Alexander has been featured numerous times in newspaper Illawarra Mercury and on TV and radio stations in the area. At just 14-years-old, he was invited to perform at The Australian Day Citizen of the Year party. At his young age, this was a big stepping stone for him and one of his performances that established his character and performance-style.
In March 2020, Alex released his debut album, “Imagination,” featuring his original song “Winter Shadows” as well as original arrangements of classic jazz songs. A man of many talents, Alex sings, plays, composes, and arranges all of his music himself. His music has even caught the attention of legendary Nashville songwriter and producer John Capek (Rod Stewart, Cher, Olivia Newton-John, John Farnham).
“Music has always been a huge part of my life and I’m excited to finally share my voice with the world. I want to revive the classic lounge genre and invite a new generation of listeners to enjoy the music I have always had an affinity for,” says Alexander. He lives and breathes the ‘Dirty Thirties’ so much so that he even cruises around in a 1934 Vauxhall Car like Bonnie and Clyde would drive.
With his classic crooner sound and entertaining character, Alexander hopes to bring his old school sound to a new generation of listeners.
