Alex Preston is a 22 year old singer songwriter from New Hampshire who has been involved in music since he was four years old. He plays over twelve instruments ranging from the guitar to the violin and writes all of his own lyrics from inspirations around him.
What sets him apart from other artists is his total sense of self, drawing the audience in and making them feel what he is projecting. Keith Urban put it best saying, “What I love about your performances, they always hold my attention. It’s very raw and it’s fragile. It’s very real. You don’t ever phone it in, you’re always in the moment…man I love your artistry.”
His lyrics always come from the heart but it’s the way he delivers them that truly captivates people. Alex was second runner up on the thirteenth season of American Idol in 2014 which launched his career to new heights. Alex has performed all over the United States and Canada perfecting his craft and working with some of the top names in music.
This opportunity allowed Alex to work and interact with artists such as Jason Mraz, Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr, Keith Urban, Aloe Blacc, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Fall Out Boy, Zooey Deschanel, Magic, Phillip Phillips, O.A.R, Christina Perri, Backstreet Boys, Gavin DeGraw, Of Monsters and Men, and many more Alex’s debut CD, which he recorded in a cabin in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, was released in 2015. Inspired by the landscape and seclusion, these songs show his songwriting style that will have you dancing one moment and captivated the next wanting to hear every word and note.
As Harry Connick Jr said “One of the things I like to see the most in a performer, in this case, you, is struggling with the emotion of the song and not giving into it. You do that so well.”
