PRESS REVIEWS

AMERICANA UK

his sound steeped in good old-fashioned earthy organic roots Americana,  Alexander possesses a sound more akin to the banks of the Mississippi than his native River Clyde...a ton of influences and a load of natural talent  9/10

FATAE MAGAZINE

..full of soulful ambience and great storytelling...a great listen, and one that will surely be revisited again and again, revealing itself more fully with every play. 

BURNSONG

a fabulously assured song that’s clearly the product of considerable talent and surefooted craftsmanship. Packed with wonderfully-realised imagery, the well-honed lyrics sustain a compelling narrative flow that’s expertly complemented by the music

Q Magazine

lilting acoustic blues...careworn tunes and his dust choked voice give a timeless feel to his songs

BLABBER & SMOKE

..he’s welded to and wades in muddy waters..Alexander’s voice has a very fine smoke stained patina that at times sends chills up the spine...a wonderful conglomeration of folk and blues (and beyond).. a very fine album

JOHNNY'S GARDEN

from google translate:

think of John Martyn's early records..A record you will have a long time of enjoyment..

DAILY RECORD

..a musical journey on lonesome highways to the Mississippi delta performed with the passion and angst of America’s deep south”

Maverick

so scintillating that is sounds at times you could be forgiven for losing yourself completely**** 

GUITAR & BASS MAGAZINE

Alexander puts his virtuoso skills on slide and acoustic guitar to fine use on this collection of tunes that will create a righteous dustbowl around your stereo

FOLK RADIO UK

husky voiced Alexander’s album very much rooted in dustbowl blues...these tales of weather-beaten lives make for engrossing listening.

BLUES MATTERS

With a rich imagery within his lyrics to songs such as ‘This Side Or The Other’ and a likeable dry wit, Alexander is an engaging and talented performer well worthy of your exploration.

THE HERALD

scorching guitar riffs, dusty vocals and beautifully crafted songs

THE SUNDAY HERALD

think Robert Johnson by way of Mark Knopfler...Just how the blues should be

Rock N Reel

Guitar-country and Delta blues styles knowledgeably tempered with folk picking.. i could go on, but its far better you discover these delights for yourself; this is superb ****
