With a big voice and a dream to match, Alex Hall plotted the course for his music career at the age of three when he strapped on a plastic toy guitar and began belting out, “One for the money, two for the show…”
Alex describes his music as country with a rockin’ edge, but like his musical influences—Elvis Presley, Jason Aldean and Johnny Cash—his music does not fit neatly into one category. He writes songs about life growing up in the south and the family his parents have raised him to love.
Born in Atlanta and raised in Gainesville, Georgia, Alex grew up learning the sport of horseback riding and barrel racing alongside his mother. An accomplished rider himself, Alex has a deep appreciation for cowboy culture and has certainly learned how to lasso an audience and give them quite a ride. In middle school Alex continued his vocal pursuits with formal training under the tutelage of choral director and mentor, Eric Elliott. With the support of his parents, Alex began performing in local restaurants and bars during his freshman year while continuing to hone the craft of songwriting. His hard-driving approach to performing eventually landed him in the Maysville studio of Lee Davis where Alex recorded his first record at the age of fifteen.
Through the continuance of building relationships in the industry, Alex has had the good fortune of penning songs with highly regarded songwriters Mike Dekle, Bruce Burch, Byron Hill, and Red Bow recording artist, Rachel Farley. And for the past three years, Alex has been under the guidance of renowned vocal coach/producer “Mama Jan” Smith of Jan Smith Studios in Atlanta (Justin Bieber, The Band Perry, Usher).Those who know Alex off stage describe him as somewhat shy and reserved, but on stage Alex is anything but. The maturity and strength of his voice might surprise first-time listeners who are very typically captivated by his distinctive style and high-energy performances.
He has extended his performances to include venues throughout the southeast such as Wild Bill’s in Duluth, GA, the Bluebird Café, Tootsies, and Hard Rock Café in Nashville, TN, and the Flora Bama in Gulf Shores, AL, and has shared the stage with Bucky Covington, Jimmy Hall, Frankie Ballard, and Gavin DeGraw.
