New Waves 2018: Jay Alexzander

The music of Jay Alexzan­der is ready and will­ing to take you – and your date – from the dance floor to beyond your bed­room door. He brings us live­ly R&B (‘Hel­lo’) and dan­ger­ous baby-mak­ing, slow jams that fans of Ush­er and Miguel will root for.

So far, Alexzan­der has released two mix­tapes and an EP (The Pro­logue), toured as a back­ing vocal­ist for Josh Bar­ry and Ady Suleiman, and has twice been a final­ist in the MOBO UnSung com­pe­ti­tion. Last Octo­ber, we watched the Lon­don vocal­ist per­form a con­fi­dent set in Hack­ney. Pre­vi­ous­ly, he’s opened shows for Yolan­Da Brown and Snarky Pup­py. The steamy ‘FWU (feat. LK)’ is Alexzander’s lat­est sin­gle. A video is on the way soon.

“In 2018, I plan to be much more active that I have been pre­vi­ous­ly. I plan to have my name and face every­where,” Alexzan­der tells Fringe Fre­quen­cy. “Per­son­al­ly, I feel like the music I will be releas­ing will be my best to date, and the qual­i­ty of every­thing I release, includ­ing visu­als, will fol­low that. The songs will hope­ful­ly be refresh­ing to the ears and hope­ful­ly will excite every­one as much as they excite me.”
