The first thing that hits you is the voice. Alex Lipinski's caressing sympathy, full-throated resentment, and the raw rockabilly excitement of earliest Elvis have grabbed unwary listeners at clubs from the West Country to Krakow, Philadelphia and New York, since the 26-year-old moved from Weston-Super-Mare to London over three years ago. He has followed in the footsteps of his heroes Lennon and Dylan to London's Tin Pan Alley and the Chelsea Hotel, soaking up experience evident in his urgent live conviction. The crafted intimacy of his debut album catches much of the mature musical control and adult yearning that already sets him apart.
His debut album 'Lonesome Train' has gained strong reviews and critical recognition in the National press, both in the UK and in foreign waters, as well as National radio airplay. BBC6 presenter Tom Robinson recently selected 'Lonesome Train' as one of his tracks of the week.
For the past twenty-four months Alex has been gigging extensively throughout the UK, earning a strong reputation as a live performer and gaining a number of notable fans including Liam Gallagher, Anton Newcombe of the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Gary Powell (The Libertines), Steve Craddock, Ralf Little, former Aston Villa manager John Gregory, amongst many others. He is currently working with Paul ‘Bonehead’ Arthurs (ex-Oasis), collaborating on a project called ‘Phoneys & The Freaks’. Their debut EP is out now on Cherry Red Records.
