Scott Alexander

Scott Alexander plays what can most briefly be described as nonrepetitive pop. His music is truly unique in the way it avoids verse-chorus repetitive structures, while employing catchy melodies and witty lyrics that evolve naturally through each song. No topic is off bounds for Maestro Alexander. From obesity, to promiscuity, to the immorality of President Andrew Jackson, Scott offers insight on all of these subjects with passion and sincerity, all the while being acutely aware of the humor most potently delivered by unexpected truth.

Scott exhibits inspiration from artists such as The Violent Femmes, Jonathan Richman, Magnetic Fields, They Might Be Giants, The Velvet Underground, and David Byrne. The influence of his classical training is also apparent with bassoon solos and his signature and unique song structures that emphasize a range of topics far beyond the default love song.

Often solo with an electric baritone guitar (tuned between a standard and bass guitar), Scott’s music is appropriately naked, bearing and embracing every nuance of an unstable moment. With shockingly direct vocals Scott eagerly invites others to revel at the nexus of sincerity and self-consciousness.

Maestro Alexander Scott Alexander studied bassoon and lute at the Peabody Conservatory and Ethnomusicology at UCLA. While his unique background facilitates his thoughtful song structures and cultural self-consciousness, Scott does not take himself so seriously that he misses his main objective of connecting with people and making friends. He has been featured in several music magazines, college radio, and will be showcased in an upcoming documentary by Melissa Lefton.

His latest releases Scott Alexander Makes 7 or 8 Dollars (Dec ’09) and Scott Alexander Makes a Big Deal Out of It (March 2010). Comprise a study of contrasts between a homemade (diy) and a more collaborative fully produced studio album.
