“Blues alterato: da nubi di fumo appare Alex Haynes; ha il blues nell’anima e nessun desiderio di renderlo scontato. Alex, con innegabile autorità, ricrea un’atmosfera di sigarette e whiskey che sembra realmente di toccare” - Bluesbunny.

Alex si esibisce regolarmente non solo a Londra e in UK, ma anche ad Amsterdam, Vienna, Mosca fino a toccare Belgio e Svizzera.

ENG: London-based blues singer and guitarist Alex Haynes – described as ‘one of the UK’s best blues vocalists’ by bandsoup.com – started out playing acoustic blues and folk in cafés and bars around the north of England – namely Leeds and Newcastle. Moved to the capital made his debut release with the mini-album/EP ‘Last Train’ in Jan of 2011.

‘This reviewer’s album of the month comes in the shape of inspirational and off-the-wall blues by Alex Haynes and pals… once in the machine it’s very difficult to turn off the hypnosis… there is plenty to distract and engage. Strikingly original, this is neologism blues for those wishing to extend the boundary.’ – Blues Matters.

‘Skewed Blues: Out of the smoke… comes Alex Haynes, he’s got the blues in his soul and no desire to make it easy for you. That cigarettes and whiskey atmosphere is… effectively invoked. Following a path with undeniable authority…’ – Bluesbunny.

Haynes performs regularly and widely, having played not only across London and the UK but also in Amsterdam, Vienna and Moscow and trips across Belgium and Switzerland. He has played prestigious venues such as the iconic Astoria in central London (supporting Alabama3), Bush Hall in London’s Shepherd’s Bush (both as a soloist and with Oh Ruin supporting Alberta Cross) and at UK festivals including, the End of the Road Festival, Fieldview Festival and the Moseley Folk Festival.
