Alex Seel is a singer-songwriter and guitarist with roots in folk & blues.

Music has led Alex Seel from Devon to London to Ireland and back to London again. Through his wanderings, Alex has picked up a beautifully crafted, warm, rootsy song-writing style with thought-provoking, subtle lyrics and a gift for acoustic guitar finger-picking.  He has a growing reputation as a solo performer and is touring at the end of March and in May 2019.

He released a double A-side single ‘Satellites / Grass Is Greener’ on the 22nd March - from the forthcoming album ‘Spell On A Tin Drum’ [Release: 17th May].

The album, written partly in a caravan on the west coast of Ireland and mostly recorded under a bed in London, has retained a raw emotional feel and with it gained new heights of songwriting within Seel’s unique repertoire.

His previous release ('Circles EP') was well received by press (see Reviews) and radio (including BBC6 and various BBC regional/local).
