A very talented young actor/indie pop singer-songwriter, Alex James Ellison will be releasing his debut EP ("Duvet Days") on March 22 (some of the songs were co-written by my close friend and collaborator - actor/singer-songwriter Joe Sterling).

Alex trained at the BRIT School for Performing Arts and at Mountview Academy and has appeared in a number of commercials and a couple of films. I've heard the recordings of the songs and IMO they are brilliant - great musical hooks, great storytelling craft in the lyrics. I appreciate the genre may not suit everyone - but here are a couple of videos in case anyone would like to check out Alex and his songs:
