"The soul of a singer/songwriter combines with the emotion of blues and the power of rock" - Alex Lopez is an acclaimed guitarist, prolific songwriter and emerging artist recognized for his electrifying live performances. Critics have said he is "capable of revitalizing the blues for a new generation" and he is quickly taking the blues/rock scene by storm. Alex was born in the heartland of Rock n Roll Cleveland Ohio and started playing keyboards before becoming inspired by British blues/rock bands to master the guitar. Influenced by greats like Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix, Alex spent young adulthood performing in clubs and recording original songs in small studios while polishing his songwriting skills. Since his move to Florida to attend college, Alex spent years as the vocalist and lead guitarist of the wildly popular rock band Reminiscion before striking out on his own... In September of 2013 Alex released the self recorded album "Back Bedroom Blues" a collection of all original blues and blues/rock songs on which he played all instruments and introduced his formidable skills as a blues guitarist and singer/songwriter. In 2015 Alex Lopez released his second CD "Is it a Lie" with his newly formed band "The Xpress" to excellent reviews. His third album, "Slowdown" achieved a new level of success with international recognition and critical acclaim rising up the blues, jam and Americana charts with worldwide airplay and earning Alex fans across the globe. The latest recently released album "Yours Truly, me..." went to #6 on the blues Radio charts and clearly positioned Alex to continue his ascent in contemporary blues. Alex has just released his most ambitious album to date the pure blues rocker "Rising up" already at the top of the radio and billboard charts and what early reviewers are saying "is sure to be one of this years best blues/rock albums."
