Alex Vann is an experienced singer, performer, writer and multi-instrumentalist, and can go out solo or with his band.
I am an all round musician, singer, performer, song / music writer and producer. My musical background goes back 40 years to when I first started playing in the school brass orchestra and reading music. I went on to learn guitar at 15 which is when I started writing songs. I played in many bands, honing my stagecraft, often as the front man. I started recording and releasing my own albums from an early age, firstly on 4 track tape then 12 track digital and now use Logic Pro X on AppleMac). My music has been used on independent films and numerous radio shows and I have performed at many festivals including Birmingham Songwriters’ Festival held at Ronnie Scott’s jazz club, Codfest, Chainmakers Festival and Birmingham ArtsFest. I perform solo and also front “The Alex Vann Band” which features the amazing Martin Betts on bass (ex “Weirds War” and “Rachels Basement”) the incredible Nick Chadd on drums (ex “Epsilon”, “Gridlock” and “Macs Band”) and musical powerhouse Mark Leeson on piano (ex-“Quill”, “The Raymond Froggatt Band”, the UK’s No1 Rod Stewart Tribute and Musical Director of several shows). My music encompasses a wide range of genres and subjects and is mainly influenced by great writers from the pop and folk worlds. These include: Ralph McTell, Cat Stevens, Francis Dunnery, David Bowie, Rufus Wainwright, Squeeze, Neil Finn, Paul Simon and Duke Special to name but a few.
