Alex Lleo / Solo Headline Tour Begins This Week + New Track 'No Way Back'
Alex Lleo kicks off his Solo Headline Tour this week with shows across the West Country including the Boardmasters Big Spring Beach Clean in Watergate Bay on Sunday, 15th April.
The shows follow the release of Alex’s new single ’No Way Back’, which was recorded live alongside Alex's six-piece band over the course of one afternoon in Park Studios, Birmingham.
The video - which you can watch now on Vevo - was shot during the track's live take. Alex says: "I was aware from the start that with this approach we weren’t going to get the glossy finish you might hear on a standard production, but that was the whole point. I wanted to showcase something different, something that gets back in touch with the human element of why we make music. Both band & engineer had to ride the wave, and It was a really cool experience. The pressure of everyone nailing a take was exciting, and I’m glad I could call on some talented mates who collectively pulled it all together."

Outside of the South West, Alex can also be heard at two headline shows in London & Birmingham this spring. Alex will make his London debut at St Pancras Old Church on 2nd May. Promoted by Communion Presents he will be supported on the night by George Glew.
He will precede this with a show at Birmingham’s Sunflower Lounge on Sunday, 29th April.
Spending time in nature - in Worcestershire's Lickey Hills where Alex lives and grew up, the awe-inspiring Scandinavian mountains, and surfing the various coastlines of the British Isles - has shaped Alex’s creative outlook. You can hear his attraction to the natural world, its peace and its drama, in his music, which is exquisitely paced, laid-back and rich in melody.
