We’re said it before and we’ll say it again, there’s little debate that Alex Clare is one of the dopest artists in any genre right now. This was no less present this past Thursday night when Alex and his 3 piece band came to the Henry Fonda Theater in Los Angeles. From the UK singer songwriter’s belting power vocals to his substantive and controlled melodies, he put on a show to remember. The artist’s loyal fan base surely played a major role in this sold out gig. And in fine fashion, Alex was at his best when he was armed with just him and his piano, and emotions a bounty of musical perspiration. Standout tracks that evening included his cover of the Etta James classic, “Damn Your Eyes” as was his commercial smash, “Too Close”.
In Alexander’s words, “I just got a massive smell up here on stage, and it was like, welcome to California”. Indeed welcome to California Alex, and we can’t wait to have you back!
