Bio

Alexy is a Canadian singer/songwriter based in Montreal, QC. Alexy released his debut EP ''Fragments of Fiction on August 23rd 2010. Alexy's first solo effort presented the listener with introspective lyricism, groovy hooks, and soulful melodies to create a unique blend of alternative indie rock. Alexy has also acquired the support producer Ben Pelchat, with whom he is now completing the recording of his full-length album ''Paper Moon''.

What sets Alexy apart, is his independence as an artist. Alexy wrote and produced everything on his debut EP, ranging from drums, bass and piano to cello, guitar and vocals. At only 21 years of age, Alexy has stepped away from his University Music Studies to pursue his music career full-time, as well as producing other upcoming local artists, promoting his music videos, coordinating his live band. Alexy has now released his 3-song album sample ''Last Man EP'', leading up to the album to be released early next year. The first single off this EP, ''Dirtier Dancing'' has also placed in the top 5 in this years' ''Song of the Year'' contest in the ''Dance'' category.

With a dedicated 3-piece band backing him on stage (known as ''The Other Side''), a growing set of theatrical aspects and colourful melodies and harmonies in their live shows, they are targeting a wide audience of rock-pop fans, hungry for something new and innovative.

In their short time together, Alexy & The Other Side have successfully made it through to the 3rd round of the Live 88.5 ''Big Money Shot'' contest, as well competing in many showcase competitions in Ottawa. They have also begun touring the surrounding regions, including their first official tour, with stops in Toronto, Oshawa, Peterborough, Ottawa and Kingston, and are actively gigging in and around their hometown.

Most recently, Alexy's first single, Dirtier Dancing, was featured on three episodes of Nickelodeon's Nick @ Nite brand new series, Hollywood Heights as well as CBS's 'Young & the Restless'. Additionally, ''Keep Calm'' will also be airing on popular Canadian series ''Degrassi'' on March 22nd.
