What do face paint, costumes, choreography, and music all have in common?
Yes! They are all part of Alexy & The Other Side’s new live show!
But of course if you were at the Live Lounge on April 15th, you already knew this! But in case you weren’t, let me fill you in a little…
The Other Side (Nathan Corr, Kira Montfort, James Deakin-Thomas) and I performed for the Live 88.5 Big Money Shot last night, and to say the very least, it was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Ever since I discovered/fell in love with with Peter Gabriel and his music, I’ve longed to create a live show that could truly engage one’s emotions like he did. Creating an experience both incredibly musical as well as imaginative and theatrically immersive. This would be a way for us to connect with the crowd in such a symbiotic way that it seems almost infinite in the moment. I believe we were there last night, and for all of those who came out to support us, I thank you and thank you and thank you again.
For the first time, and with all of your help, we reached The Other Side. And it was magical.
However this is simply the beginning. I will be heading off to the big T.O to record my first full length album with the help of producer extraordinaire Ben Pelchat. With about half of the songs written and demoed, I have difficulty finding a word to describe the new sound. All I can say for now is that this is likely to be drastically different than my first EP, ”Fragments of Fiction”, incorporating new styles, genres and colors (hip hop anyone?), and I can’t wait to see what you all think of it.
If you would like a taste of what may be in store in the near future, simply put your name and email in the form at the top right of the page, and voila! Two new songs in your inbox!
I will also be posting some of the songs we performed at the Live Lounge in the next few days, so make sure to keep checking back!
Music. Lives. Forever.
