Perhaps Houston Press writer Nicholas L. Hall summed it up best when he wrote, “Listening to multi-instrumentalist Lee Alexander is a lot like taking a leisurely stroll through about a century of American popular music...Alexander has earned a reputation as both a strikingly original voice and an able torch-bearer for a broad handful of American musical idioms, layering Nilsson-esque pop-standard fare, dusty country ballads, the occasional bluesy stomp, touches of jazz classicism and damn near anything else he wants.”
This past year, Alexander’s catchy melodies and razor sharp lyrics have placed him as a finalist in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, and he has been honored as Best Male Vocalist by the Houston Press Music Awards. Other past honors include being a grand finalist in The Bugle Boy Songwriting Competition, the Independent Music Awards, a regional finalist in the 2007 Mountain Stage Newsong Folk Festival, and a semifinalist in the 2005 UK Songwriting Contest. Alexander has also been a featured artist in the Songwriter's Serenade Folk Festival, "M" Music and Musicians Magazine, Performing Songwriter Magazine, the 2007 Mardi Gras Festival, the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus 2006 Summer NAMM Showcase, the 2006, 2007, and 2008 Houston Press Music Awards, the 2006 Houston Fair Compilation, and the 2006 Houston International Music Conference and Festival, as well as being a featured artist on Sonicbids.
Alexander also continues to donate a portion of performance proceeds to human rights initiatives through Amnesty International.
