Introducing: Abraham Alexander

Last updated on November 9, 2022

Abraham Alexander redefines what a significant singer-songwriter can be in these wonderfully divisive times. The first single and title track from his release Heart of Gold is the first song Alexander ever wrote,  “Heart of Gold” is the perfect introduction to this latest addition to Austin’s Ten Atoms family. 

Alexander’s American story begins in Greece. Born to Nigerian parents, he immigrated to America as an 11-year-old. His mother died shortly after. But music empowers the soul to survive. Adopted at 16, the gift of his father’s guitar allowed him to channel the love that shaped him through tragedy and change. His sound is revealed in “Stay” (featuring Gary Clark Jr.). The song fires fiercely with restrained emotion. Longing, impassioned hope and desire reveal a sultry smooth soul wrapped around the soaring guitar. 

I first heard Abraham Alexander perform an opening for Shakey Graves at the Rialto Theater in Tucson, Arizona, and I will never miss an opportunity to catch Alexander performing again. You can grab tickets here
