Alex Seel is a solo singer-songwriter and finger-picking guitarist with roots in folk & blues.
Music has led Alex from Devon, to London, to Ireland and back to London again. Through his wanderings he has picked up a style reminiscent of the 70’s contemporary folk troubadours. He combines this with lyrics relevant for today’s world.
Alex released his album “Shifting Sands” in 2013, while supporting Graham Parker in Italy, and his EP “Other Paths” in 2015 both to critical acclaim. He continues to play regularly around the UK and Ireland. His most recent EP, “Circles”, was released July 2017 has also received good reviews and airplay on BBC6 Music (Tom Robinson), BBC Introducing Devon, BBC Gloucestershire (Johnny Coppin) and BBC Scotland (Iain Anderson).
