A decade ago, Abraham Alexander was just learning how to play the guitar. When his buddy Leon Bridges asked him to sing on an album, Alexander had only enough chops to hum. That was it. Now, with SEA/SONS, his debut, the Arlington native (by way of Athens, Greece) shows how far he’s come—with a little help from Gary Clark Jr. and Mavis Staples.
On this episode of EarBurner, Zac and I talk about why several musicians have wanted to punch him, how my search history on Spotify came to include Fall Out Boy, and we give you a bit of a preview of Zac’s upcoming profile of Alexander in the magazine. Plus we spin a few Alexander tracks and deliver trenchant criticism thereon. Sample from me: “Oh, yeah, I’m digging this.”
