Biography

If you could imagine one artist that took the best of the 60’s, 70’s, late 80’s and early 90’s to create quirky, edgy pop sounds, you’d find yourself listening to Alex Arrowsmith. This insightful and often humorous singer/songwriter is making music that emphasizes an ‘anything goes’ attitude not often found in the more recent music scene.

Currently residing in Portland, Oregon, Alex’s music is an eclectic blend of the best from the past several decades, incorporating his unique and unabashed sense of humor into his lyrics. His sound is engaging, yet funky, hook heavy, but certainly edgy. With inspiration spanning from Pink Floyd to U2 to Weezer, Alex’s unusual musical perspective offers listeners much more than a catchy beat, but rather a journey through modern life, esoteric philosophies and political/social satires. His unconventional lyrics and vocals keep listeners on their toes, awaiting what musical tricks he has up his sleeve.

October 2006Having studied radio broadcasting, Alex has self-produced and engineered eight of his ten CD releases. His most recent Applewine (2006) and Missing Briefcase (2008) were professionally manufactured but still self-released.

With his fresh sound, Alex has garnered great success, having had his songs air on several radio stations, on specialty programs and television shows including PBS’ Kids’ DragonflyTV in 2006 and NBC’s Today Show in 2007. Alex has also received internet celebrity status with his political satire video “Bomb Iran” on YouTube, which has earned over 150,000 views and was briefly featured on CNN.
