The first thing that hits you is the voice. Alex Lipinski’s caressing sympathy, full-throated resentment, and the raw rockabilly excitement of earliest Elvis have grabbed unwary listeners from the West Country to Krakow, Berlin and New York, since he first left Somerset to become a crucial habitué of Soho’s legendary, lost 12-Bar Club. He has followed in the footsteps of his hero Dylan to write in the Chelsea Hotel, and sung songs in the home of an admiring Liam Gallagher, who is a firm champion.
Alex’s latest album ‘ALEX’ was recorded and produced in Berlin by Anton Newcombe (Brian Jonestown Massacre) and has recently been released on Anton ‘A’ Recordings label. Hailed by Newcombe as, “a young man surely worth my time and efforts. I appreciate his endless hard work and do it yourself ethics. Make no mistake, these songs have all the qualities of timeless music.”
British born singer-songwriter and musician Matt Owens first came to prominence as a founder member of indie-folk band Noah and the Whale and Rock’n'Roll band Little Mammoths. Releasing four albums, Noah and the Whale achieved huge success in the UK and overseas, selling over one million albums in the UK alone.
2018 will see the release of Matt’s debut solo album. It is an album that oozes Americana with its campfire storytelling told mainly on acoustic guitar and piano, reflectingthe songwriting skills of some of Matt’s favourite artists Ryan Adams and Warren Zevon.
