Artist Biography

Alex James, a 4-piece alternative, indie-rock band formed in 2019, aims to hit the North-East music scene by storm, following the release of their debut single 'Direction'

This newly emerging band has an accumulation of raw, rock and roll sounds, with influence from popular artists, such as Oasis, Royal Blood, Arctic Monkeys, Foo Fighters, Sam Fender, Airways, The Pale White and many more.

Frontman and guitarist 'Alex James' Kennedy formed this band back in 2019, as part of his Masters in Music degree at Newcastle University. Alex is a full-time wheelchair user with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, who has an extreme passion for rock music, and is fully committed to becoming one of the first wheelchair user frontmen of an alternative indie-rock band.
