Alex Davies solo work

We’re expecting great things from Alex Davies this summer as some inspirational alpine writing has lead to so some sweat and tears in the studio…. here’s a very small excerpt of what’s to come See video.

After first appearing on Britains got talent as a finalist and then three consecutive winter seasons gigging around the ski resorts of Meribel, Tignes, Courchevel and Val D’Isere, Alex has matured as one of the leading solo musicians on the European scene – he mixes great covers of well known classic with his own infectious ska/hip hop influenced pop tunes.

If you’ve never seen Alex Davies live then he will be performing in and around Wales and the Southwest England this summer, with a residency weekend in August in Aldernay see his own FB site for more details
