Greater Alexander / Press

“Wayne State alum Greater Alexander (Alexander Vlachos) creates a gentle power with his acoustic guitar, open tunings and picking style that’s not unlike Nick Drake and Cat Stevens, just like his bio says. It really is the sound of ache, loss and wild winds across open fields — you know, that sound that’s nearly impossible to capture.”

“Another recent submission to this Page by Greater Alexander (Alexander Vlachos), a singer-songwriter from the Detroit, MI area. It seemed like most other pretty submissions until 51 seconds in, when his voice produces chills, absolute chills.”

“Greater Alexander isn’t gloomy – his records just make him seem that way. Any Way Out Of It‘s acoustic pitter-patter pummels your mind with a thousand tiny, fluffy bean bags, and, briefly, time stands stiller than still. Aaaaah.”

“Last night, Greater Alexander stopped by the exfm office for a little meet & greet and to play a few tunes. It really was something special. We chatted about life, not relying on “hope”, puting in the necessary work, and doing what you do because you love doing it so much and can’t picture doing anything else. Of course we chatted music, influences and other bands/artists we dig. Alexander is about the nicest guy you’ll meet (you’d never guess growing up he was in a hard-core band called Korrupt – yes, so hard-core it was spelled with an obligatory K!). He’s also an incredible singer/songwriter as well. Definitely check out his music. And keep an eye out for his upcoming Kickstarter project. It’s going to have some great rewards. Thanks again, Alexander for stopping by, you’re welcome any time.”

“Live at GBS. Wonderful resolution to a fantastic Kickstarter project we backed. Long live independent music.”
