Alex Seel is a London based singer-songwriter. Having started his musical journey in Dingle, Ireland, he now gigs between the UK and Ireland. This year, promoting his latest album Shifting Sands, he supported Graham Parker in Italy and regularly plays at The Spice of Life in Soho.
“…His songs have echoes both of Nick Drake and Bert Jansch, two of his leading sources of musical inspiration, and listening to Alex in concert is balm to the soul after a rough day… Alex is someone who knows how to read the clouds, and who loves the thorns and not the rose. He has a mind stained with the powder from a butterfly’s wings, a heart shaded with poetry and the knowing fingers of a fingerpicking acrobat.” – Rolling Stone Magazine, Italy
“…an artist deserving of a lot more exposure”… “Seel is talented, blessed with a lovely fingerpicking style and a uniquely rickety tenor that displays a proclivity for clean swoops to the next note. His voice is his own, and he phrases the material in a way that recalls a rarer kind of singer, the type of lover who lets things go and even opens the door for the tyrannical muse… Many of his lyrics are opaque, emphasizing nature and the external surroundings that often employ (to use Ginsberg’s line) “chains of flashing images”” – Folk Radio UK
Alex’s album Shifting Sands is available on all on-line platforms and in CD format from his website alexseel.com
