Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Just 21 years of age, singer Alex Stewart is already creating a buzz as one of the most precociously talented vocalists of the new generation.

With a voice rooted in Connick and Sinatra, and with a touch of the Kurt Elling rasp, Stewart avoids being a nostalgia act by a judiciously off-beat choice of material and a decidedly contemporary energy level.

As well as clever re-arrangements of great standards, he translates the occasional pop song into jazz and adds some originals, including songs by pianist Alex Webb.

“Stewart is good. I enjoyed hearing “I'm in the Mood for Love” for once with attack and kick rather than mawkish sentimentality … Stewart's singing, and the one original he sang, “Goodbye” with its sinuous and original melodic line, are more than more-ish.'' www.londonjazz.blogspot.com March 2009

“Look out for Manchester singer Alex Stewart, who may just blow all the young Ratpack-imitators out of the water.” Jazzwise Magazine Dec 2008
