California born and raised Alex Siegel is creating his own style of “bedroom pop.” Influenced by jazz, bossa-nova, folk, and hip-hop, the singer/producer creates resonant songs that tap his eclectic inspirations to invite listeners on a journey somewhere warm, beautiful and new.
After being discovered by various indie/bedroom pop tastemakers on the internet, Alex's 2018 single Headspin found a home on Spotify's Bedroom Pop playlist alongside the likes of fellow producers Cuco, Jacob Ogawa, and Omar Apollo. The follow up singles Daydreaming Pilot and Lonely Days propelled Alex’s music to an even wider network of listeners and fans around the world, generating 1.5M + streams in a matter of months.
Alex is a multi-instrumentalist who has worked as a session musician and toured with various artists such as Malian guitar virtuoso Vieux Farka Touré (Alex on keyboards) and Nine Pound Shadow (Alex on drums). He is the keyboardist of psychedelic pop band Amo Amo, whose debut record was produced by Jim James of My Morning Jacket.
Combining elements of 60’s pop with the warm low end of hip-hop and the sweeping soundscapes of electronic music, Alex’s songs are powerful, honest and familiar, yet something altogether new. Alex plays all the instruments on his tracks, in addition to writing and singing the songs. Formerly of the musical project Waterstrider, Alex now releases music under his given name. Some of his biggest influences include Brazilian godfather of bossa nova João Gilberto, Miles Davis and Bill Evans.
