Biography

Active: 2000s-2010s
Country Of origin: United States of America

A classically trained opera singer and a former opening act for Chuck Berry, with influences ranging from Little Richard to PJ Harvey, singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Alex Winston isn't the easiest artist to pigeonhole. Born and raised in Detroit, MI, Winston was encouraged by her parents to pursue her musical ambitions. At age seven, she began listening to Carole King and Laura Nyro while playing the guitar with her father in the basement of their home, and her mother once snuck her out of school to visit the Motown museum. After moving to New York, she began performing at various clubs, supported Ted Nugent on his U.S. tour, and teamed up with Chris and Drew Peters (Black Eyed Peas) for her debut EP, By the Roots in 2007. She has since released several EPs including 2010's The Basement Covers, a collection of interpretations of tracks by Mumford and Sons, the Rolling Stones, and Jack Peñate, and 2011's Sister Wife, produced by the Knocks (Ellie Goulding). Winston delivered the full-length King Con in 2012. ~ Jon O'Brien~ Rovi
