Real music, real passion, real songs, the real deal. Alex Fisher can say yes to all of the above. “I know I’m just starting my career and still have a long way to go and still have to prove myself but I’m trying real hard to build on a solid foundation. And I’m building from the ground up making sure there is honesty to my music, both in my songwriting and my delivery of the songs. I think one of the hardest things for a young artist to do is find his or her own identity, to not try and sound like anybody else and just be themselves.”

That is exactly what the Kingston singer/songwriter is doing. With his debut album, ‘For Us’ already under his belt Alex Fisher has jumped into utilizing his talents with full force. “It’s amazing how fast things are moving for me right now. I was playing open mics in the Kingston area, trying out new songs and trying to improve and learn as I went. Another songwriter, Kevin Head, who liked what I was doing said if you want to get to next level you need a team supporting and guiding you. He strongly suggested I get in touch with Sandy Graham at Entertainment Music Group in Toronto. I got a hold of her and sent her some of my music. We had a long talk and discovered we were both on the same page and I knew that Sandy and her team were the right fit for me. Once the deal was done, in fact before the ink was even dry on the contract, things really starting speeding up. Alex FisherAlex FisherI have a great new website , worldwide distribution with Believe Digital and connections with fellow artists and songwriters who are super generous with their time and knowledge. I’m just like a sponge absorbing all their advice and expertise and using it to fit my plan. I feel really blessed to be part of an established team of professionals.”

The next few months look to be exciting and accelerating times for Alex. In April he and his team head to Wasaga Beach to be the face of a new brew, Wasaga Beach Beer...
