Biography

Alex Lindsey Jones is an independent artist with an original and addictive brand of radio rock, his unique style and vocals represent a breath of fresh air in the music scene.

From an early age, Alex was musically minded and influenced by his parents taste in American Rock 'N' Roll from Elvis to the Beach Boys and later discovered Bruce Springsteen and Huey Lewis & The News. At the tender age of 15, Alex had written his first song and within two years he had penned over 200 original pieces, already developing the distinctive style that can be heard in his music today.

Singing was and always has been a passion for Alex and it wasn’t long before he broke out onto Sydney’s acoustic scene. Showing real promise as a vocalist and writer, his career took him to the UK for two years where he played over 120 shows and supported Country and Alternative artists like Chuck Prophet, Tom Hingley (Inspiral Carpets) and the Brian Travis Band.

In 2003, Alex decided to return to Australia to record his 10 most warmly received songs onto what would become his debut album ‘Learning the hard way’. Completed patiently and independently funded over a three year period, his album is best described as "a no frills, back to basics, rock 'n' roll record".

The opening track from the album 'Real Thing' has already proven popular with audiences becoming a Top Five Internet Radio Hit on Ison Live Radio, with 'When You're Gone' also receiving airplay, while to date the fan favourite seems to be the haunting and beautiful "Saint".

Alex’s ambition is inspiring, and his respect and passion for the music industry will be an asset as he moves forward, he is currently seeking a record deal and working on his first music video which will be filmed later this year.

Lyrics

Real Thing

Written By: Alex Lindsey jones

Five minutes and one cup of coffee
Was all it took to make you love me
And you know the feeling surely was returned

It’s such irrational behaviour
To give your heart so quickly
When the angels start to sing, there’s nothing you can do

I know this is the real thing
I could never ask for more
I know this is the feeling that I been waiting for

It’s like we’ve known each other for a million years
You help me put away my fears
You make me feel like there’s nothing I can’t do

I have my heart in your hands
I’ll never need a second chance
I’m gonna do everything right from the start

I know this is the real thing
I could never ask for more
I know this is the feeling I been waiting for
I’m never gonna leave you, just want you to know
I’m always gonna need you
More and more everyday
For the rest of my life
I will not stand alone, I will not be denied

(repeat chorus)

Saint

Written By: Alex Lindsey Jones

I guess its redemption time,
the past has been on my mind,
I guess that I’ll be all right,
if you can forgive my crimes.

You know I’ll never be a saint. – no no
You know that I’ll try to change. – wo oh
You know I’ve never been that proud.
You’re the only thing that makes me smile.

Well I guess that I’ll avoid the meltdown,
and kick it into overdrive,
I can see it’s about me this time,
hell, maybe I’ll get it right.

You know I’ll never be a saint. – no no
You know that I’ll try to change. – wo oh
You know I’ve never been that proud.
You’re the only thing that makes me smile.

You know that I won’t be a saint,
You know that I will, never change.

I Just Wanna Be

Written By: Alex Lindsey Jones

Here I am,
madder every day.
Trying to find the road home,
but I got lost along the way.

If this is me,
wanna turn my head.
I’m too tired for this,
you know my soul is dead,
and I just wanna be,
like everybody else.

Here I am,
I have no strength,
I just wanna give up,
but you know I can’t.
And is it me,
makes my life so hard.
You know I’m running on empty.
You know I’m broken down,
and I just wanna be,
like everybody else.
Everybody that don’t cry.
Everybody that feels alive.
Everybody that still feels good inside.

And I’ve always known,
that I was different.
And I’ve always known,
that I was alone.

I’ll always been alone.
Yeah, I’m alone.

And I’ve always known – oh,
that I was different – yeah.

Repeat chorus.
