Shane Alexander & Zak Ford - 3 August 2012

Artist's website: Shane Alexander

Shane Alexander

L.A.-based singer, songwriter, and guitarist Shane Alexander has drawn comparisons to everyone from Jeff Buckley to Art Garfunkel and Jackson Browne, thanks to his beautifully emotive vocal style and his haunting, finely crafted songs. Born in San Diego but raised in Maryland and Pennsylvania, Alexander took refuge from a turbulent childhood in music, falling early under the spell of Simon & Garfunkel's Greatest Hits, an influence that still slightly colors his adult work." -MTV, Steve Leggett, Rovi

Shane Alexander is an internationally known singer, songwriter, and guitarist who's opened tours for Seal, Jewel, Suzanne Vega, Bon Iver, and many other top acts, in addition to his own tours in the US, Canada, and Europe. Songs from Shane's extensive catalog have been featured on nearly 60 television shows and films. Currently recording in Los Angeles, he plans to release his 5th studio album fall of 2012.

But he very rarely plays the UK. Four years ago he played a solo show here, before travelling south to support Suzanne Vega. This time he's only over for a couple of days.

Zak Ford: Soul infused melodic folk has been used to describe Zak's sound with his honest whole hearted vocals and harmonious chords. He has already made an impact with both his solo work and in his band River City Ransom. For fans of Ray LaMontagne/James Vincent Mcmorrow and City & Colour.
