At 27 years of age, Manchester-born singer Alexander Stewart has already created a buzz as one of the most precociously talented vocalists of the new generation. With a warm, urgent voice that shows off his early love of Billie Holiday and Tony Bennett, he avoids being a nostalgia act with his judiciously off-beat choice of material and a decidedly contemporary energy level. As well as clever re-arrangements of some of the famous standards, he stamps his mark on great pop songs as well as adding some superb originals.
Alexander Stewart has played sold-out shows at Ronnie Scott’s, the Pizza Express Soho and in fact almost all of London’s jazz rooms. He has supported legends such as Dionne Warwick on her tour, sang along side the likes of Emilie Sande, JLS and Lemar over the last few years of his flourishing career.
His vocal talents have enabled him to perform across the globe, both in public shows, as well as at some of the most prestigious events in the social calender including Miss World, Vogue Magazine & in his home town for Manchester United.
