1) Alex Lloyd (born Alex Wasiliev in Sydney, November 1974) is an Australian . His musical career can be traced all the way back to his teen years when, as a 13-year-old upstart, he started playing in pubs with his first band, the based The Beefs. After a stint in Sydney’s renowned group Mother Hubbard, Lloyd went solo in 1997. He has since had a remarkable career that has garnered critical and public acclaim both in Australia and elsewhere, being best known for his hit single “Amazing”.

His three solo albums- 1999’s ‘Black The Sun’, 2001’s ‘Watching Angels Mend’, and 2003’s ‘Distant Light’- have collectively sold more than half a million copies. As well, following the release of each album he has been awarded an ARIA for Best Male Artist (2000, 2001, 2003). 2000 also saw him win an ARIA for Best New Talent. But Lloyd managed to be more than accomplished album artist with a penchant for experimentation and an intuitive gift for melody. His iconic 2001 single “Amazing” was not only voted Song of the Year in the prestigious, listener-voted Triple J Hottest 100 poll in 2001- it also secured an APRA Award (the songwriters awards) in 2002 for Song of the Year’. The track ended up being the played song on Australian radio that same year.

Given such heady success, it’s no surprise Lloyd spent most of 2004 out of the spotlight, savouring the time he could now spend with his new-born son, Jake, as well as his wife of three years, Amelia.
