Alex Southey is a Toronto-based singer-songwriter. He has released a new single titled “On the Dance Floor” – an atmospheric folk track celebrating all the people dating, enjoying themselves, enjoying the nightlife in Toronto.
His unique blend of wandering lyricism, atmospheric strings, and emotive sense of melody make for an engrossing, contemplative listen. The official video for “On the Dance Floor” is made up of sourced and filmed clips to reflect the tenderness of the song as a whole.
He is a big part of the Toronto singer-songwriter scene, running an open mic and hangout at Toronto’s Imperial Pub, just off of Dundas Square, and performing regularly around the city.
His most recent tour, the Day Like It’s Night Tour, donated all of its profits to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). The tour raised over $1,000.
The musician is currently working on his third full length album, entitled …And the Country Stirred, produced by Juno winner and Polaris prize nominee John Critchley (Dan Mangan, Elliott BROOD). Aaron Hutchison (Zoon, Luka Kuplowsky) is mastering.
