Singer-songwriter Alex Hall in homecoming Milford gig
HAILED by BBC introducing as ‘one to watch for 2022’, singer-songwriter Alex Hall will play a homecoming gig on Sunday (27th March) at Milford-on-Sea Club.
Describing his music as cinematic pop meets lo-fi meets indie, Alex recently supported Brit Award winning singer James Morrison on tour.
Now based in London, Alex has previously worked with pop-rock band The Hoosiers, and Motown icon Martha Reeves.
He also writes music for film and TV. Growing up in Milford, Alex attended the village primary school before going on to Priestlands School and then Brockenhurst College.
In 2020 Alex featured in the A&T after a return visit to Milford prompted him to write the track Progress as a protest against a housing development close to his former primary school.
Speaking at the time, Alex said: “The single lyrically discusses the controversy of housing development. It is a lament and an irony towards the word ‘progress’.
“As much as planners and politicians talk of economic progress, there seems to always be an environmental and social detriment to it.”
Last year Alex garnered interest from Glastonbury Emerging, and received significant airplay on BBC Introducing.
He describes his show as a “modern one-man-band experience” which includes trumpets, guitars, pianos, synthesisers, electronic drums and visual effects.
“I’m delighted to come back to my village and show everyone how hard I’ve been working on these new songs and the show,” said Alex.
“It’s going to be brilliant to see some familiar faces.”
The show will start at 5pm on Sunday. Tickets are £2 on the door or in advance from www.alexhallmusic.co.uk
