Alex’s debut album ‘Until The Traffic Stops’ was written, played, sung and produced in his Edinburgh bedroom yet it ended up provoking the kind of tips and plays that any major-label artist would beg for…3 singles spending a total of 18 weeks on the Radio 2 playlist, sessions for Radio 2 , 6 Music, Radio 1, XFM, BBC Radio Scotland, a song played over the end credits of a Hollywood film, The Sunday Times’ “hottest download of the week” and playing the biggest concert halls in the UK supporting Alison Moyet.  Alex’s second album “Call Back”, released at the end of last year continued the momentum, a session for Dermot O’ Leary on radio 2, another hottest download of the week in The Sunday Times, 4 stars from The Scotland on Sunday (”passion, guile and a voice to stand up to Thom Yorke”), new fans all over the world following the use of “Don’t Hold me Back” in new hit TV Show “The Big C” and “The Shame” in ABC’s “Private Practice”, “Once More I’m Put to the Test” on The Word Magazine’s covermount CD, a “Record of the Day” and more support from 6 Music, Radio 2 and BBC Radio Scotland. Alex is now on tour again throughout July, stopping by to play an intimate set with his band at Band on the Wall on 11th July.
