Alex Seel is a contemporary singer-songwriter and guitarist with "influences from blues, pop and the British Folk Revival guitarists but a sound all his own" (Twickfolk).

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, rootsy song-writing style with thought-provoking lyrics and finger-picked acoustic guitar trait.  A contemporary twist on the British folksinger/guitarist, he has a growing reputation as a solo performer, having performed around the UK, Ireland, Italy, Germany and Spain (see live dates here).  

Alex's latest release is the critically acclaimed album ‘All Sails To The Sun’ (29/9/2023). He also picked up GSMC Best Single Award 2024 for the ‘No Goodbyes/Wishbone’ double A-side, having been played on Cerys Matthews BBC6, BBC Wales and BBC Scotland among many others.

“Brilliant, and I mean the word brilliant, new album” - Strange Brew - TD1 Radio Scotland

“Superb album” - From Albion and Beyond - - Arkansa, US

“Across All Sails To The Sun, Seel gives voice to both his folk and rock influences to equal effect - blending them into his own personal musical expression…these heavily textured rock arrangements beautifully counterpoint the more traditional and folk-based songs. The contrast in tone heightens each style's effectiveness” ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ - RNR Magazine

With now officially 3 albums and 2 EPs released, Seel has built a slow but steady following that has earned him appreciation from a growing number of folk clubs, radio play and interest from abroad. He has supported Graham Parker and Clive Carrol amongst many others.

Previous touring collaborations have included The Songwriter's Circle Tour (, organised with singer-songwriter Greg Hancock, and as a duo with virtuoso instrumentalist Jon Sanders.

“Exquisite and powerful songs from one of the best composers, guitarists and singers in the UK today. Alex Seel has influences from blues, pop and the British Folk Revival guitarists but his sound is all his own”


Celtic Heartbeat, BBC Radio Wales

“…absolutely outstanding!”


FATEA Magazine

“…on this form it's hard to understand why he isn't (yet) one of the biggest names on the circuit”


Maverick Magazine

4/5 Stars:  "His gorgeous vocals dominate this album, evoking Paul Siebel in lyrics and hints of Jeff Buckley in sound - he depicts an impulsive nature while also remaining grounded in clarity...Seel manages to grasp the listener within the poetry of his words...spell-binding lyrics".


RnR Magazine

“Enhancing a growing reputation as one of Britain’s finer songwriters..."


Rolling Stone Magazine

“…a mastery of fingerpicking techniques and a repertoire of unusual chords; a fine poet with a very personal vocal style”

“...listening to Alex in concert is balm to the soul…”


Folk Radio UK

“...a truly talented songwriter”
