Biography

L.A.-based solo artist Shane Alexander is back with Stargazer, the follow up album to his critically acclaimed 2005 independent release, The Middle Way.

The new album, produced by Heroes & Villains, features some of Los Angeles’ most respected musicians – Charlie Paxon (James Blunt, Colin, Hay, Anastasia) on drums, Billy Mohler (Macy Gray, Liz Phair, Herbie Hancock) on bass, Krister Axel on piano, Chris Pierce on harmonica, and veteran session ace Kim Bullard (Tori Amos, Goo Goo Dolls, David Crosby, Eddie Money) on Hammond organ. Stargazer—recorded in only four days—was tracked mostly live using vintage gear. The result is a rich, timeless sound.

The vocals and songwriting on Stargazer convey a real sense of honesty. On “Spaces In Between”, the album’s opening track, Shane muses that “little spaces in between I find, are all that’s left of all my time, trying to make each moment last”. “The Moore Hotel” is a beautiful and melancholy song written while fighting insomnia in a lonely Seattle hotel room; it brings images of lonely walks and sleepless nights to life. “Front Porch Serenade”, the album’s closer, is a classic love song recorded live with only acoustic guitar, piano and heartfelt vocals that leaves the listener with a lump in their throat.

Formerly the front man for the rock band Damone, Alexander took the solo path immediately following Damone’s 2003 disbanding.
