Alex 01

It’s late fall so it’s time for Alex to grace the Hermitage again. He is on the verge of releasing the live album he recorded at the legendary Caffè Lena’s and it should be available in time for sale at the concert. He is also coming to the end of a record 200-show year and he’s still working on his new studio album, “Fuel, Air, Compression, Spark.” And he still has found time to get in a little bow hunting here and in Kentucky. Ah, youth! But his singing and songwriting reflect a far older soul.

Alex grew up in Long Lake, in the heart of New York’s Adirondack Park, and his music strives first and foremost to echo the culture of that area. He builds songs from a blend of traditional folk harmony and strikingly modern lyrics, confronting today’s most pressing issues with grace while paying homage to the musical tradition of the region.

Alex’ characters, though fictional, live and breathe a balance between beauty and imperfection. His stories draw on the triumphs and hardships of friends, relatives, and neighbors near and far, and he has worked tirelessly to carry the music of northern New York to audiences nationwide.

I hope you will come by and enjoy his deep, sonorous voice and words.

Alex 02
