Alex James Ellison To Launch Debut Single CHOCOLATE BAR, Phoenix Artist Club, May 17
Indie Singer/songwriter Alex James Ellison will celebrate the launch of his debut single, "Chocolate Bar", at the Phoenix Artist Club on Sunday May 17.
A regular performer at cabaret and pub venues in London and around the UK, Brighton-born Alex wrote, recorded and released (on the Auburn Jam label) his debut EP of his own original songs, "Duvet Days" in March 2014. He trained at the BRIT School For Performing Arts and Technology and at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts. His musical theatre stage credits include the roles of Eddie in the Tom Lees/Ray Rackham musical Apartment 40C at the London Theatre Workshop and the St James Studio, Charlie in Sasha Regan's critically acclaimed production of Richard Taylor and Russell Labey's Whistle Down the Wind at the Union Theatre and Taylor in Best Of Friends at the Landor Theatre. He has appeared on screen in films and television commercials and has doubled as Harry Styles in the One Direction tribute Band "Only One Direction".
Guest performers at the Chocolate Bar launch gig will include actress/singer-songwriter/model Natalie Amanda Gray and actor/singer-songwriter Joe Sterling (who toured the UK in 2014 as Buddy Holly with the acclaimed Buddy Holly And The Cricketers, played the role of Ugly in Stiles And Drewe's musical Honk! at the Tabard Theatre in 2012/2013 and released his own debut EP, "Half a Year" in 2013.).
Alex lists his musical influences as including Ed Sheeran, McFly and Jamie Cullum and his songs have been described as "fun pop mixed with sincere singer-singwriter". His single "Chocolate Bar" aims to continue in this vein of clever, quirky songwriting coloured with sweetness and fun.
