2020


"The past four years have been spent working on the new record "Soul River" and playing the occasional gig, from the mountains of North Carolina to the university town of St. Andrews, Scotland. My plans for touring to support "Soul River" have been postponed because of the CoronaVirus but in the near future I plan to increase my presence on Facebook, have an International CD Release via streaming platforms and promote my music through all the usual social media channels. It should be a fun ride!!"

Thanks to all who were in attendance at the Visulite Theater on March 18th for my CD Celebration. The evening was a huge success. Playing with a full band was a great experience and brought high energy to all of the songs. Kudos to Tim Murray on lead guitar, Ron Brendle on electric bass, Mark Stallings on keyboards and Andrew Marcadis all of whom did a fantastic job backing me up. Photos and video from the show are forthcoming so please be on the lookout. Next gig on the horizon is the Tosco Beatles Tribute Concert on June 18th at the Knight Theater in downtown Charlotte. John Tosco carefully selects an eclectic line-up of musicians for this yearly event, each of whom gets to play their interpretation of one Beatles’ song. I am keeping mine a secret but will reveal that it will be a folk arrangement of one of their earliest “masterpieces.” I think you can tell I am a huge Beatles fan. Finally I am back in the studio putting down initial tracks for a new CD. I am working with the wonderful Fred Story who produced and performed extensively on my record “Daredevil Angel.” It is great to be working with Fred again in his beautiful Concentrix Music and Design Studio.” - Matthew Alexander
I am excited about the upcoming “CD Celebration” at the Visulite Theater on March 18th 2016 in Charlotte North Carolina. I am happy to announce that I will be backed by veteran musicians Ron Brendle on bass, Tim Murray on second guitar, Andrews Marcadis on drums and Mark Stallings on keyboards and will be featuring songs from my new CD “Three Minute Movie” as well as my previous five CDs. Also, I am excited to announce that I am currently working with famed  Charlotte producer and arranger Fred Story on recording songs for a new yet- to- be named CD.” - Matthew Alexander
