Alex Gibson has rightly earned the reputation as one of Australia’s hardest working, most talented musical artists.
The Canberra-born performer rocketed to fame after being spotted busking and asked by producers to audition for Season 2 of The Voice in 2013. After a spine-tingling rendition of “Blackbird” he found himself being mentored by internationally-acclaimed artist Seal and progressed through the show to be a Top 12 finalist.
Alex has established a loyal fan base who have embraced his unique vocals and style which he describes as “mix between Folk, Soul, Blues, Jazz and Rock”. He cites Paul Simon, Steve Wonder and The Beatles among his musical influences.
In the time since The Voice Alex has again immersed himself into full
promotion and development of his music, embarking on his first ever solo, 8 date tour across Australian cities (September 2013) and more recently a smaller four date tour (April/May 2014). Over the past few years, Alex has also frequently supported numerous touring artists including Diesel, The Black Sorrows, Kate Ceberano, Daryl Braithwaite, Mental as Anything, Deni Hines and Uncle Jed.
Alex is currently writing for his second album to follow up his highly acclaimed 2012 release This is Life. His first LP was launched to a packed house at Sydney’s iconic venue ‘The Basement’ and reached No. 2 on the Australian Singer Songwriter Charts.
