Still working on that hot first release.



The Greek word polymath means: "having learned much". When you consider the genesis and coming up of singer/songwriter Polymath, you'll see that this name was aptly chosen.
The man behind the music, Alex Kalmar, has had an interesting journey thus far: After watching his peers battling for a piece of the musical pie in his local indie rock scene, Kalmar turned his eyes across the globe and thought: "Why not China?" Originally from Brantford, ON, Kalmar developed a curiosity for China through business trips with his dad and saw an untapped opportunity within his reach. He decided to take a leap of faith.
Moving to China with little more than a suitcase, a guitar and a head full of dreams, Kalmar created the character of Polymath, an alternative pop country force that brings to mind artists like Switchfoot, Taylor Swift and Keith Urban combined. With driving choruses carried by sing-able melodies, gigantic drums and acoustic charm, Polymath has not only crafted a new sound, but a new way of doing things.
"By the time I get back to Canada in 2011, I don't think anybody will expect what's coming," Kalmar dishes. Free of interference or distraction, Polymath is incubating, training, if you will. For Polymath, China is a place to start: The beginning of a bigger adventure.
Part of that adventure was to record. Polymath's self-titled debut features three infectious, emotionally raw singles destined for both radio success and live music magic. "Come fill the empty space between, where the grass in greener," Polymath sings on "Come With Me". This is an artist speaking to the state of his generation, whether in Canada, the USA or yeah, even China. "I see it a lot in young people everywhere," Kalmar explains, "looking for a place to belong. Polymath is an opportunity to maybe shift their perspectives and encourage them to be the change they want to see."
Polymath's debut is slated for a November 2010 release and will be available electronically at Polymath.ca. April 2011 will mark Polymath's long-awaited return to Canada, when he'll embark on the PinkTUX tour and show the world just how much he has learned.
