British singer/songwriter Alexander McKay was born in Wellington a small village in Somerset, England. He moved at an early age to Swavesey, Cambridgeshire and was turned on by his parents to folk heroes John Renbourn, Nick Drake and American artists Bread, Dylan and Jackson Browne. He started his musical life in his teens playing in local bars and clubs in Birmingham and London where he studied at London College of Music. Moving to Los Angeles in 2001 he travelled through America finding influence and inspiration for the songs that would later become his debut EP, “Brings Us Together”. Released in 2015 on AWAL. The EP is essentially a road diary. Balancing folk and rock accompanied by his raspy voice and rhythmic guitar finger picking. Unique, soulful and warm.
2015 has seen him extend his talents to the big screen debuting as an actor in a new independent film titled “Stones” about music, love and alcoholism. Being cast after director and screenwriters heard him perform at a party back in 2013.
The Film and soundtrack and film will be released in the 2017.
