I was recently given the opportunity to hear a new single by an artist named Alex Bedford. The entire experience of listening to this release was incredible. It is definitely one that will stay with me for a long time.
Alex Bedford is a rising star in the music scene, but don’t let this fool you; his music sounds as professional as any! Last year (2021), he released three covers: Drivers License, Stand By Me and Falling. He has ambitious plans to improve himself and create more beautiful music.
Follow along to know more about this amazing artist and his latest release!
What’s your official Stage Name (showbiz name)?
I had a great debate deciding this but decided to go with my original name Alex Bedford.
What do you do (fashion, music, comedy, artist, dancer, etc.)
I am a singer-songwriter.
How did you get into what you do (music, modelling, art, dance, etc.?)
Like most musicians I have been involved in music all my life. Covid was really the kick start for my music career. For years I’ve written music and enjoyed playing but have never really done anything with it. Covid really created the space that I needed, to be able to really focus on it. I started recording lots of little covers and posting them online. At the same time an old friend of mine had decided to start up a record label as he’d always had a passion for music too. He saw some of the videos I had been posting and decided to get in touch. We started talking and through his encouragement, I agreed to release some music through the label he’d just set up. Without Covid, I wouldn’t have had the time and space to start creating some content and then may not have started the journey.
What field or genre are you into and give a brief description of what your career/profession/ field feels like.
At the moment, I’m writing emotional storytelling music that fits into the modern pop, and pop rock genres. As I’m getting in the studio and recording more I’m learning more about the arrangements I come up with and am starting to develop a sense of identity in my music. It’s great to add the flesh to the bones so to speak with the music I’ve been writing for years.
Who or what inspires you or motivates you? And why?
What inspires me is to inspire others. I love to help others believe in themselves and follow their dreams and want to demonstrate this through my life.
What was your first project and the people you worked with and which year.
The first project I worked on was a series of cover songs in 2021. Prior to 2021 I hadn’t released anything and didn’t have any social presence as a musician. The covers were seen as an opportunity for me to develop a bit of an audience before releasing my original music. It also gave me the chance to learn about releasing music and figure out how it all works.
How many projects do you have so far
I’ve released 3 cover songs and have featured on another song called “White Lies and Half Truths” by Alex-is. I have two original tracks coming out soon and will be working on recording some more original tracks over 2022.
How long have you been doing what you do?
I started in 2021, so I am very new to all of this.
What do you look out for in this line of business?
I’m new to this, so I’m really looking to learn as much as I can. I’m keen to work with lots of people and learn as much as I can from their experience. I want to help others with what I learn, and collaborate wherever possible. I’m really keen to work with people who believe in me and want to help and support me. They are the type of people that I want to give my energy to.
Have you won any awards or been nominated for an award? Or in short, any achievement? Both in and out of your career path.
What is this new release about?
The song is really about love at first sight. It’s something that is really difficult to explain but you have this feeling inside you that you know the person, or that you’ve met before and there’s just this feeling of being uncontrollably drawn to them. You can’t really describe what it is about that person that’s drawing you in, it’s just something about them.
Who and how many people worked on it?
I’ve worked with Spectrum Music who are a Staffordshire based record label to help release my music. They have been super supportive and encouraging. I’ve recorded the music at Inspire Music Studios who have been fantastic at helping me put all the bells and whistles on the tracks I have written. They have fantastic musicians which has really helped pull the tracks together. I’ve also worked with TPD Digital who are a marketing company that have helped with photography, videography and artwork.
What can your previous and new audiences anticipate from you in the future?
Something about you is my latest track and is coming out on the 14th January. It’s my first original track so I am really excited about people hearing it. I’ll also be finalizing the release of my next track “frozen here” which will come out towards the end of February 2022.
