LISTEN EP - Now available from all digital stores (Release Date Feb 2018)
Listen is a blissful piece of upbeat piano led pop rock, with its memorable chorus and lush production it is made for daytime radio and deserves to be a hit. Echoes of Coldplay in the sound, which is no bad thing considering that band’s success. But Alex James Brierley has a surprise for us on the rest of the EP as ‘Wait On The Floor’ taps into an indie rock sound with chiming guitars and a trippy beat. The other song on here ‘Opening Doors’ is mellower affair and shows Alex’s voice off to good effect.
Alex James Brierley is certainly one to watch based on this classy EP. Looking forward to hearing more from him and where his musical muse takes him. ****
-Steve Levine (Brit award British record producer and Composer)
“I was immediately impressed with his rich vocal tone and the sheer quality of his songwriting and musicianship. He seems to be able to play almost anything incredibly well…including the viola, as featured on the EP! I’m really pleased with the recording as it’s a great snapshot of Alex and the potential he has to appeal to a wider audience.”
Andy Walter [Grammy award Mastering engineer ,Abbey Road producer]
''Its not often you get the opportunity to master a new musical talent that displays booth altitude and maturity in his performance. Alex has created a unique and original EP that demonstrates well the different styles and musicality that he is able to offer. Alex is definitely one to watch out for''
Russ Kane [writer & broadcaster BBC Radio, Talk Radio]
'' what? No autotune? a proper musician who can actually play the keyboards beautifully? A singer who performs with real feeling and not lip syncing so they can perform a dance routine ?How has this managed to slip through the net of dross? How totally refreshing.''
