Alec Gross is an NYC-based singer-songwriter who performs his dark & heavy brand of original folk, alt. country, & soul throughout the US and Europe. This “Cinematic Americana” sound frames his stories of madness, love, sickness, redemption, the planting and the harvest.
The characters and story lines of Alec's songs are set to hauntingmusical soundscapes that move beyond the acoustic guitars and plaintive vocals typical of Americana and Alt. Country, and are augmented by unexpected blasts of raw, Stax-era R&B. All are graced by Alec’s soaring but vulnerable tenor, which has been described as being “so perfectly suited to the times” and “superbly bold”.
