I first met Alex when he was studying voice with my mom when we were both in high school. He was already an accomplished artist, with a deep, velvety jazz tone and a sensitive way of bringing music to life. Last year, he shared with our family an early version of his debut album, Commit Me, set to be released this year on Jive Records, and I can't say enough great things about it. His music brings to mind John Legend, Justin Timberlake, and Usher, but is by no means a copycat. This is a truly unique and soulful voice, and he is sure to take the music scene by storm. Alex Boyd is one to watch. Er, listen to.
Go to Alex's website to sign up for e-mail updates, follow him on twitter (@alexboydmusic), like him on facebook, download the single on iTunes, and most importantly, share his music with other people! In a sea of mediocrity in the music industry, Alex Boyd's is a singular talent, and he deserves all the fame and success that I'm sure is coming to him. Bravo, Alex!
