At 26 years of age, Manchester-born singer Alexander Stewart has already created a buzz as one of the most precociously talented vocalists of the new generation. With a warm, voice and a stellar band, he avoids being a nostalgia act with his judiciously off-beat choice of material and a decidedly contemporary energy level. As well as clever re-arrangements of some of the famous standards, he stamps his mark on great pop songs as well as adding some superb originals.
He makes a welcome return to the Elgar Room in his final band show of 2014 before the release of his second studio album next year.
