There’s a space between Georgie Fame and Plan B, between Mark Murphy and James Hunter. Where musicianship meets soul, and stories of love and loss are told over a powerful acoustic groove.
It’s a space where you can now hear Alexander Stewart.
At just 23 years of age, Manchester-born singer Alexander Stewart releases his debut CD All Or Nothing At All, and the act that has captivated Ronnie Scott’s, the Pizza Express, Boisdale’s, the Hideaway, the Forge – in fact all of London’s coolest music venues – can be heard in the company of some of the UK’s finest musicians.
Alexander has already created a buzz as one of the most precociously talented vocalists of the new generation. With a warm, urgent voice that shows off his early love of Billie Holiday and Tony Bennett, he avoids being a nostalgia act with his judiciously off-beat choice of material and a decidedly contemporary energy level. As well as clever re-arrangements of some of the famous standards, he stamps his mark on great pop songs as well as adding some superb originals, including songs by his pianist and musical director Alex Webb.
He has appeared on stage with Curtis Stigers and Buddy Grecoand sung live on ITV1’s Alan Titchmarsh Show as well as the BBC Radio London and other local radio stations.
