Michael Alexander writes and
performs his own kind of
country music ...
West Coast Country!
Michael has been playing music from a very young age growing up in a musical family with almost any instrument available. Michael picked up his first guitar at the age 7, proved to be a great platform to write the songs that come from within.
Michael has been performing across the country since 1999 wiith Nashville as the main residence from 1999 to 2003. Michael was able to learn a lot about what it takes to make it in the music industry. While playing around in the bay area of San Fransisco in 2005 he met the beautiful, smart and talented Denise Cox. Denise took the singer and polished his talents even further. She fell in love with Micheal and his music! Micheal encouraged her to start singing back up as she was always singing along with him whenever she heard his music and he liked the contrast of thier voices together. They made a plan together to map out a tour of the West Coast, Texas and then onto Nashville.
Michael has been in and has started many bands, cover bands and original bands, playing his origional music. Now Michael and Denise are starting an acoustic tour across the Westcoast, Midwest and the South.
Solo acoustic with a back up singer is comfortable. Michael has put together bands as big as 6 piece band. " With an acoustic show you get a little more room to improvise to take the show just a little bit further to get closer and more intimate with the crowd." Micheal says. "It gives it a little more flexibility."
Michael sings lead while Denise makes the Angels listen with her pretty voice and steady tambourine playing. Micheal says, " A drummer and bass and lead can be added quickly to step up the performance but for now the acoustic tour is getting the right kind of attention. We are planning the tour and dates now and what it will consist of for January, February and March. We will keep everyone updated with our website and email notifications of upcoming shows. Small bars, coffee shops, house concerts, opening for other acts. Anywhere that acoustic country music is appreciated!"
Micheal and Denise will be sure to let everyone know! Check this page for current updates.
