"Tommy Alverson"

"Alex Whitmore is one of a kind. He's witty, funny and unpretentious…very intelligent lyrics and melodies…not your run of the mill average singer-songwriter.... He writes, produces, sings and plays on his own records. Not an easy thing to do folks....Good Texas folks, good Texas music." - Mustang Music


"Tom Geddie"

"Alex Whitmore has more real humor and imagination in his music than a bar full of those yeehah chorus singer-songwriters. His subjects range from chiggers to lonely nights in the rain and his guitar playing is excellent." - Buddy Magazine


"Donna Powell"

“Alex can make you happy if you’re not and remind you of the good times you forgot....pure Texas entertainment” - Texas Music Nation


"Janet Harris"

Emerging from the trenches with his years of experience, Alex is now a seasoned veteran of the music business. He has definitely mastered the art of connecting with his audience. His unique fingerstyle guitar playing combined with home grown humorous songwriting captivates and hits home with his fans. There is something for everyone in his eclectic mix of song and virtuoso guitar.

Bio

Alex’s authorized autobiography:

OK, I admit it, I’m a late bloomer. The problem is that striving to be the world’s oldest teenager stunted my growth in other areas. It has taken years for my musical talent to develop into what it is today ……but what it is today is as good as many of those famous singer/songwriters you’ve heard of.

It wasn’t because I didn’t get started early enough. I started playing in a folk band in High School…even made the year book. Then the coffee houses and college shows began to make me think I could make a career as a singer and musician. I had half of it right. I was a pretty good musician. Friends and family convinced me that I might starve to death if I tried to make it on my singing skills. My other passion, flying took over and I fed myself and family well for 30 years with that. I didn’t even slow down with the music or the performing though.
The final pieces came together about 5 years ago when all those quiet prods from my wife/vocal coach and the songwriting skills finally started taking hold. I’m working on Cd number 6 now. I’ve also recorded and produced one for my daughter Bonnie Picking up Pieces that made the ballot for the 2005 Grammy Awards in eight categories. My humorous and serious songs about Texas are being played around the world on radio stations that are not bound to the Clear Channel. It is a good feeling to have others like your songs and buy your recordings. There are plenty more people out there and I just need a chance to perform for them. I think I’m qualified now and I’m definitely ready.
