Born in Greece to parents of Nigerian descent, Abraham Alexander moved to Texas with his family at age 11, determined to escape the racial tensions they faced in Athens. But while his lyrics speak to pain and trauma and life-changing loss, Alexander instills his music with a joyful passion and irrepressible spirit, ultimately giving way to songs that radiate undeniable hope.
In the making of his debut EP, Alexander traveled from Fort Worth, TX to London and worked with producer/songwriters like Cameron Warren (The Dap Kings, Dan Caplen), shaping his songs with elements of soul, hip-hop, and blues.
Alexander's debut EP has received radio airplay on KCRW, ACL Radio, KXT, KVIL, The Current and KUTX, among other stations.
