The Rock-itt : December 2009
At just 15 years of age she has released her first album, "Free Therapy", an impressive compilation of catchy insightful pop songs. This is quite an accomplishment in itself for someone so young, but Alex has gone well beyond amateur debut songwriting and has been rewarded with her recent win of a 1st place in the ACMF awards (Australian Children's Music Foundation), earning her significant pier recognition at her school, tuition, songwriting workshops with Australian Idol coach Erana Clark, recording sessions and some significant dollars towards musical instruments for herself and her school, an overall prize worth many thousands of dollars. Initially, she recorded an EP called "Instead of Homework" which led her to getting down a further seven songs the following year. These recordings together became "Free Therapy". The result of this hard work has earned her not only the major prize from ACMF but also a top 10 place for "Free Therapy" in the youth category of the Australian Songwriting Association awards in October 2009, in addition, a top 25 place for her song "Get Over It" in the previous year. It's not hard to see why this 15 year old has raced to the front of the line because her hip hooks, pop grabs and wonderfully refreshing teenage perspective really pull you in and make you want to hear more... and hit her musioz nomination tracker on myspace. Alex has been hitting the road recently and playing at venues such as the Excelsior Hotel Glebe, the Lewisham Hotel, Harold Park Hotel and Kelly's on King in Newtown. It looks like we will be hearing a lot more from this sparkling young talent. You can find Alex www.myspace.com/alexrmusic and join the already 18,000 strong hits on her songs!
