Underneath Alex Winters' high-shimmer vocals and lithe guitar melodies are evocative tales of dreamers and risk-takers sung by an artist unafraid to peer into the dark while making her way into the light. Luna Guitars bestowed her with their Shining Star award in 2011, and 360 Magazine called her vocals "seamless" and her compositions "effortless". Most recently, her song "Silent Storm" won first place in the Corpus Christi Songwriters Fall Songwriting Contest.
Alex continues to develop her unique solo repertoire, reveling in a vision that is still introspective and sensitive, yet equally strong, enigmatic and haunting. With her latest EP Black Roses, Alex has added an electric edge to her acoustic singer/songwriter persona, resulting in a more blunt sound akin to Evanescence and Grace Potter, with a touch of Heart. The new record has a distinctly rock feel that brings a new dimension to her heartfelt songs without alienating longtime fans of Alex's introspective compositions. Her stories of heartbreak, inner turmoil, and life's complications are now told from the perspective of a woman with more edge, a dreamer who has walked a few more miles down her own road.
Whether performing solo, duo, or with a full band, Alex brings a fun yet sophisticated ambiance to her live performances. Her connection to her audience is very real and her stage presence natural and comfortable. You can expect that everyone in the room will feel like they are a close and personal friend by the end of the evening.
Alex is releasing brand new music in 2019, starting with "Silent Storm" on August 23rd, followed by more single releases towards the end of 2019 and into 2020. This collection of original tunes will mold Alex's forthcoming album Beauty and Blemishes.
