This is about my old friend and sail mate Alexander MacLean! I’ve known him since I was very young.. I remember watching Disney classics, playing pokemon, yu-gi-oh and running around distant island trails pretending we were in pod racers.. We’d spent years sailing together and it’s awesome to finally be in touch again!
We didn’t speak about music much when we were young, but when I came across his E.P I had to post about it! 🙂
Alex spent two years in the Music Industry Arts program at Fanshawe in London Ontario.
That’s the same school I just applied for actually! It has a solid recording studio and he recorded this during his time there!
Alex likes to create music that is fun and full sounding! When you listen to his songs you can enjoy the melody or take a deeper listen and tune in to all the layered instruments and vocal harmonies! He can play many different instruments, and has also collaborated with other artists on this album, awesome job!!
Every song has it’s own vibe.. mostly rocky but you can feel a nice change between each song. I feel some Jazz and funk here and there, lots and lots of rock, and a little pop but it’s ALL INDIE BABY!! Love the vibe. (If you don’t feel my Jazz and funk perspective check out “weathered hands” It’s a lovely tune to jam to.. definitely my favourite!…flamenco? that word comes to mind. lol.
His album is available for stream, but he also has a donation box!! Toss him a few bones if you are able! Either way enjoy this! it’s fucking sweet. “Weathered hands” actually blows my mind. Loooove it bro!! Im vibing to it right now.. my heads just rockin out.
Alright Cheers everybody! Have a good week!!!
