Biography

Alexander Fairchild Volume 1 // 16 SONG RELEASE — Debut LP NEW ALBUM released (via TPC MUSIC/SONY RED ) Purchase here : http://smarturl.it/alexfairchilditunes

The music of Alexander Fairchild is instantly gratifying; a sweeping cleanse of a heavy heart in need of redemption. Like that way you can feel good after being emotionally wrung out. His self titled Alexander Fairchild Volume 1 , his debut LP (released October 29th, worldwide via TPC MUSIC/SONY RED) is a collection of anthems trying to make sense of love among it’s greatest champion and rival: the head and the heart. Not one for introspection, he’s compelled to write it out, shout it out, stew in it for a little while. The result is a meticulous and sprawling manifesto of a man helplessly and eagerly in love. To which he has his own method: “my deal on love is very simple and complex: firstly, I believe that one should be careful in the small decisions and reckless in the big ones”.

He pulls from bygone eras, sentimentally taking from it what is necessary and infusing it with his own soul, indie and pop influences. His moniker too, makes its nod to icons and relics - Alexander the Great and Fairchild compressors, used by the Beatles, citing The Doors, Joni Mitchell and the Beach Boys as his enduring shrines.
Fairchild takes on all the sounds himself, with an intuitive sense of instrumentation from it’s technical anatomy to the way it makes you feel. Songs like Tonight and Very First Time were made for us; those who still feel wild, young and free.
