Alex Gibson has rightly earned the reputation as one of London’s hardest working and most exciting musical acts. The Australian born singer-songwriter built a loyal following in his home country before dropping everything and buying a one-way ticket to London.
Gibson decided to gamble on himself and jump in the deep end of the UK music scene. Since landing he has been developing a new sound based on his dramatic shift into the eye-opening new life of living, breathing and touring around Europe and most recently, Sweden.
He has performed at multiple iconic London venues including The 100 Club, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, OMEARA and the infamous 100 Wardour Street; formerly 'Marquee Club', where he was featured as one of the 'Timeout London's' Rising stars of 2016.
He describes his music as a “mix between Pop, Soul and Folk” citing Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder and The Beatles among his musical influences, alongside modern-day stars such as John Mayer, Sean Mendez and Coldplay.
His experience is unique, as it has both the real and superficial elements of life in the modern day music industry. He’s regularly spotted busking on Portobello Road in Notting Hill, or performing for Sofar Sounds in a secret location to pindrop silence. In contrast to this Gibson even had a stint on ‘The Voice Australia’ working with his Mentor ‘Seal’ and reaching the final rounds.
2019 is the most exciting time of Alex’s career so far; his new EP is about to be released. It is the culmination of all that has been, including the hardships, the excitement and rawness of his life experience. It is an honest and relatable catalogue of songs written by Alex and produced by ‘Simon Cohen’, who is the vocal producer behind Justin Bieber’s hit ‘Love Yourself’. Big things are on the horizon for this talented artist.
