Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter/producer Shane Alexander has shaped a distinctive career for himself starting with his debut album, The Middle Way, in 2005. Touring the US and 11 other countries both as a headliner and supporting such disparate acts as Bon Iver, Seal, Jewel, John Hiatt, Suzanne Vega, Styx and Yes, the fiercely independent artist has developed a loyal international fan base, had his work appear in over 100 television shows and films, and his stunning solo acoustic track, “Skyway Drive-In” (from the album Ladera) recently passed 14 million streams on Spotify. Since the release of Bliss, Alexander has produced a number of new acts including Shelby Figueroa's debut EP (which reached Number 1 on the Amazon singer/songwriter chart) and Jenny Van West's Happiness to Burn (that has received exclusively 4 and 5 star reviews throughout the US and Europe).
Shane Alexander is currently working on the follow up to Bliss with an expected release in early 2019.
