I guess it would be easy to dismiss Alex Gardner as yet another PYT (Pretty Young Thing). Well, as a former model, he is certainly pretty and at 18, he is young too. I wouldn’t call him a thing though!
But looks can be deceiving so don’t dismiss him out of hand. Alex is a talented singer with quite a soulful quality that shines through on his songs. He has been working with hitmakers Xenomania (who produced the wonder “Yes” album from the Pet Shop Boys among many other hits) and his debut single, “I’m Not Mad”, has just been released in the UK.
Alex has an official site and a MySpace page (with more songs to listen to) at the following links:
Here is the clip for “I’m Not Mad”. I’m sure you’ll find it as compelling as I did. The song is a real grower. I can’t get it out of my head.
