Biography

Hope. Many search for it. Love offers it.

Having grown up in Houston and Albuquerque, toured in nearly 30 countries, and now based in the Los Angeles area, Alexa James' music provides an insight into her soul and a welcome escape into her unique guitar-based, hooky sound.

"I find myself constantly looking ahead, dreaming big. You know, like you can see things so far away as if they are happening today? This is a fun place to be in your head. But you step back into the reality of today, and realize you're not anywhere close.

'Even still, I find myself walking in the hope of what will happen and what will become. Where I find myself being challenged lately is simplifying things down to what's really important so that I can live fully in the moments of each day".

Alexa James writes and sings about these hopes and struggles in her new release entitled, YOU ARE THAT TO ME. As a listener, you're invited to embrace the love and the life that's around you and make the most if it, while tapping your toes at the the same time.

For example, in the title track "You Are That To Me," James writes about the sentiment that all of us long to hear "you are perfect in this moment". Knowing you are loved and complete right here, right now. When we come to that realization we are willing to fight to keep it as she sings about in "Better Than Losing You."

YOU ARE THAT TO ME is a self journey that we all must explore. One that will help us to realize what we are looking for is already around us and that we simply need to embrace it.

Upon her arrival on the west coast she won HOT ADULT CONTEMPORARY ARTIST OF THE YEAR at the 2010 Los Angeles Music Awards. "I'm so thrilled to be part of the LA Music Awards! I just moved to LA from Nashville, and have loved the journey so far. This win is like a welcome greeting reaffirming that I'm in the right place."
