Alex Southey Charms with Epic New Release

Alex Southey (he/him) is a singer-songwriter based in Toronto/Tkaronto, ON. ​His sole tour (due to the COVID-19 pandemic) consisted of six dates throughout his hometown and Montreal. Titled the Day Like It’s Night Tour, the profits raised (over $1,200)  were donated to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH).

Southey’s new My Nights On the Island EP offers a six song revision of a break up that breaks the mould of what one would traditionally ascribe to a singer-songwriter’s record of lost love. The EP feels like a sonic-cinematic journey; a short film of songs carefully crafted with orchestral flourishes and soundscapes that Southey drew from memory in his teenage years – sounds that intentionally weave the songs together and act as essential supporting cast to the leads of voice and guitar and even threaten to create sequels of their own.
