At just 16 years of age, Alexander has released four critically acclaimed albums, and received two Grammy® nominations in his short time as an artist.
Alexander started touring nationwide after the release of his new album, "Eclipse." “Eclipse,” recorded over a three-day period beginning on the day of the solar eclipse of 2017. The program ranges from jazz classics penned by John Coltrane and Bill Evans, to the Beatles’ hit “Blackbird”, and a reverent gospel reimagining of the 1875 hymn “Draw Me Nearer.” Most importantly though, “Eclipse” showcases Alexander’s significant progress as an astute composer, writing six of the eleven tunes.
Born in 2003 in Bali, Alexander lived in Jakarta from age eight to ten and then moved to New York City in 2014, where he has experienced one of the most ascendant careers ever seen in jazz.
