Enhancing a growing reputation as one of Britain’s finer songwriters with comparisons to the likes of Nick Drake and Bert Jansch, we’re very pleased to welcome Alex Seel to the Dorothy Pax on the only Sheffield date of his UK tour.
Music has led Alex Seel from Devon to London to Ireland and back to London again. Through his wanderings, Alex has picked up a beautifully crafted, warm, rootsy song-writing style with thought-provoking, subtle lyrics and a gift for acoustic guitar finger-picking. He has a growing reputation as a solo performer and will be touring in the end of March and in May 2019 (see dates here).
His next release is due out on the 22nd March – a double A-side single ‘Satellites/Grass Is Greener’ from the forthcoming album ‘Spell On A Tin Drum’ (Release: 17th May).
The album, written partly in a caravan on the west coast of Ireland and mostly recorded under a bed in London, has retained a raw emotional feel and with it gained new heights of songwriting within Seel’s unique repertoire.
“Great rootsy feel…with some lovely harmonic twists”
“Enhancing a growing reputation as one of Britain’s finer songwriters. …it confirms that he’s also a gifted guitarist…exquisite fingerpicking beautifully complements a nicely judged vocal performance”
[Thumbs Up] Proper job…a lovely picking style and a distinctly English turn of phrase.
4/5 Stars: “A gentle yet compelling listen…this is a seriously good EP”
