Alex Softley is a singer-songwriter based in South London. After the release of his debut single ‘Walk By The Riverside’ in 2018, Alex quickly headlined the O2 Academy Islington. With personal stories entwined in Alex’s musical narratives, his output contains strikingly catchy melodies which create atmospheric live shows. Alex has previously supported artists such as Billy Lunn and the Subways - who Alex played to death as a teenager.
His latest release People Watching is written about the day-to-day commute and the stresses of the everyday. Penned whilst riding the London underground, the narrative discusses the blank expressions and silent phone watchers of the tube. He talks about how people seem depressed and annoyed at the same time at the thought of going to work, which he focuses on during the track.
Alex recently mentioned that he watched the famous interview with Simon Sinek on millennials at work and it was an inspiration that he didn't know was there.
Alex’s next live outing will be the quarterfinals of the Isle Of Wight New Blood competition at the Underbelly in Hoxton on the 14th of Feb. Promoted by Hot Vox, Alex will be competing for a slot at the Isle Of Wight festival 2020.
