Bio

Alex Battles writes songs that are better than his marketable skills. Alex Battles needs a break.

Alex Battles was raised on a Christmas tree farm in Ohio. He was indoctrinated into the music of Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, and Waylon Jennings on long car trips with his parents.

At 20, he rescued his grandfather's banjo out of the woodbin and learned how to play Hank Williams songs on it.

He moved to New York, had jobs and ran into an old friend he'd played with in Ohio. Together, they formed a band called The Whisky Rebellion.

Alex wrote a good number of good songs, and The Whisky Rebellion would end up playing several sold-out shows at Brooklyn's Southpaw including the Brooklyn Country Music Festival and Johnny Cash Birthday Bash.

At 38, unemployed, Alex Battles decided to commit himself to music full-time. He needs you to book him so that he can eat.
