Alex Francis released his first single ‘The Last Time’ in early 2017 before embarking onto a successful tour of the UK and Europe supporting pop legend Melanie C. Alex also provided guest vocals on Melanie's single ‘Hold On'. His EP ‘A Stronger Love’ caught the attention of Stereophonics’ Kelly Jones who invited Alex and his band to open their European tour in early 2018. Alex toured Europe with Sting in summer 2018 and performed his first shows in New York in September including a sold out Mercury Lounge alongside Anthony D’Amato.


Alex‘s new single 'Whatever Happened' produced by Stew Jackson (Massive Attack) arrives in February. He will follow that with a headline tour of Europe in early March before his arrival at SXSW.
