Stuart Alexander & The Hard Road

Stuart Alexander & The Hard Road


Our music is best described as an adventure. The music is based on strong melodic passages with a great story line. Big guitars and a big sound.


Stuart Alexander came about by a chance meeting between friends. Singer song writer Stuart Alexander has played locally in the Illawarra for many years in various and original bands. Stuart has that rare gravelly voice (Tom Waits)which suits the stories that are portrayed in the songs.
Stephen Mulrooney a Bass enthusiast has a great collection of rare bass guitars all offering a rare and big round sound. Like Stuart, Stephen has played in many local acts over the years.
Drummer Ian Muir has had a long standing career in music initially studying under legend Andy Evans. Ian played in 80's JJJ award winning act Amused along with guitar legend(Rudy Morabito). In recent years Ian has moved into production and operates his own studio.
Lead Guitarist Sam James also plays in Illawarra band Atticus. Sam the youngest member of the band plays lead guitar way beyond his years.
