BLISS / Shane Alexander (2016)

Since his debut The Middle Way in 2005, Alexander has forged a style blending west coast folk, rock, psychedelia and spirituality into a successful sound that has appeared in over 100 television shows and films. Shane Alexander is one of the hardest working indie artists around. His song,  'Skyway Drive-In', a solo acoustic track from the 2013 release Ladera, crossed over 8 million streams on Spotify. Check out Shane Alexander’s latest video ‘Evergreen’ below!

Bliss, Alexander's first self-production, is also the first record made at his new Buddhaland Studios in Southern California. Bliss is a timeless tribute to the artist's influences, both classic and more recent contemporaries such as Jonathan Wilson, Ryan Adams and Conor Oberst. Alexander’s crystalline tenor and deft acoustic guitar are at the heart of all the tracks.

Touring the US and 11 other countries both as a headliner, and supporting acts like Bon Iver, Jewel, John Hiatt, Suzanne Vega, Seal, Styx and Yes, the fiercely independent artist has developed loyal international fanbase. Shane Alexander is a proud endorser of Guild Guitars, D'Addario Strings, LR Baggs pickups and DI's, Levy's Straps, Hercules Stands and Blue Microphones

Press:
"The self-produced album contains ten tracks all written or co-written by Shane Alexander. The production is top-notch, with every instrument coming through as clearly as the pitch-perfect vocals. It’s the feel good album of the summer, full of songs with themes that will leave you feeling as purposeful as a sunrise.”—Parcbench

"Alexander’s crystal clear vocals deliver every word with intention."--The Daily Country

"This upcoming audio offering cements his fluid, acoustically-driven signature sound as a tuneful tribute to both classic rock influences and more recent lesser known ones as well."--Music, Art, Film (MAF)

"A collection of expertly produced, well-crafted and superbly sung songs, it’s a testament to the level of quality indie artists can achieve without major-label backing."--Ink 19

"Smooth vocals, beautiful lyrics with a background of pleasantly mastered instruments…"--Seattle Music Insider

“Alexander’s pleasant smooth tenor is the centerpiece of the songs, but (his) inventive complex fingerpicked guitar is almost equally impressive.”—Workin’ Man’s Blues

“His work runs deep from the roots…He filled the room with emotive, colorful lyrics, sweet guitar melodies and a voice that is sweet with a hint of darkness.”—Live Review Noho Arts District Magazine
