Alex the Great

Sep 10th 2012 at 3:03 AM
Bio: Alex the Great is an independent Alternative-Folk-Rock act based in Brighton, UK… But really they are much more than that.

Alex the Great brings together a far-reaching scale of musical styles – from catchy, guitar-driven tunes to th eir slowed down, Dylanesque folk songs, it is hard to ignore the cohesive-yet-varied set lists and true dedication that are obvious in each of the band’s performances. While the crowd dances along, each musician brings a sense of individuality to every song, creating a sound that is truly unique. Their music is for everyone, from anywhere.

The band was formed by Steven Voges, Vlad Matveikov, Juan Johansson and Hamid Mashali. They came together in East London in 2010, but their history doesn’t begin there. Though the guys have such diverse citizenships as Dutch-Caribbean, Czech-Argentine, Danish-Brazillian and Columbian-Persian, they all met and became friends while attending high school in Madrid. Needless to say they have an international reach.

Now based in Brighton, Alex the Great released their EP entitled The Saint in January 2012. The EP was recorded and mixed by Alex the Great at Strongroom Studios, as well as in the band’s home studio, and later mastered at the great Abbey Road Studios. Featuring several guest musicians on instruments ranging from cello to flute to piano to slide guitars, the EP allowed the band to go in a new direction and fully round out their sound. Having played at venues such as Cargo, the Barfly and the Enterprise in London, as well as De Roots in The Hague and The Painted Lady during Toronto’s Canadian Music Fest 2011, Alex the Great is ready to bring their sound to a wider audience.


Press Release: Brighton-based band Alex the Great proudly announces the release of their new EP, The Saint, which came out on 15 January. This marks the first studio recording for band members Steven Voges, Vlad Matveikov, Juan Johansson and Hamid Mashali.

For those who have not heard Alex the Great, their sound is best described as alternative-folk-rock, but with live sets that feature a variety of different moods and styles it can be difficult to describe their exact sound. The Saint is available to hear at alexthegreatmusic.com

The four-song EP was recorded and mixed by Alex the Great at Strongroom Studios, as well as in the band’s home studio, and later mastered at the great Abbey Road Studios. Featuring several guest musicians on instruments ranging from cello to flute to piano to slide guitars, the EP allowed the band to go in a new direction and fully round out their sound.
