Alex Niedt (pronounced "neet") is a Kansas City recording artist, producer, and mix engineer whose first EP release, Don’t Forget To Tip Your Bartender, is now available at iTunes and other online retailers. The EP and accompanying music video have been well-received, garnering descriptions such as "one-man-band creations that combine dreamy swirls of electronics with Niedt’s alternating vocal gravel and silk".
Showing eclectic taste and range, the Lex Luger-produced "Hold Me Down" and covers of Tim Buckley, The Beach Boys, and Stephen Sondheim are available for download on iTunes or Bandcamp. Currently in the works is a collaborative album with rapper Caligula, signed to producer Danja's N.A.R.S. Records. Niedt and Danja will handle production duties. "In The Night", produced by Danja, is now available for free download.
In early 2012, Niedt won the MixFest Competition, hosted and judged by Grammy-winner Dave Pensado, and appeared on Pensado's Place. Shortly after, another victory came with the "Girls Just Want To Have Fun" remix contest, with proceeds going to Cyndi Lauper's True Colors charity.
