Introducing your pianist

Alex wedding pianist
Your pianist is based in France but plays (almost) anywhere

Alex has been playing the piano for over 40 years. (Although not continuously.)

During that time, your pianist has played quietly in small hotels and restaurants, loudly on big stages, written music for theatre and TV, and recorded with a variety of bands. Today, he lives in the Dordogne in southwest France, where he performs in various lineups, and teaches privately.

Solo piano set list

Alex’s solo pianist set list includes modern classics by Norah Jones, Freddie Mercury, The Beatles and Frank Sinatra. Recent hits from John LegendEd Sheeran, Lorde, Hozier, Snow Patrol and Keane. Plus beautiful film and TV themes, a sprinkling of Elton Johns and a dash of Seal – with some famous guitar pieces adapted for piano because they’re just too good.

These melodies are woven together with improvisation, exploring ideas and phrases drawn from Alex’s many years at the keyboard. You may hear some Keith Jarrett between Burt Bacharach and Louis Armstrong. Or you may find yourself listening to a song by one of the many songwriters Alex has worked with over the years.

Have keyboard, will travel

Alex travels with his own keyboard and amplification, so he can play wherever electricity is provided. Bookings over 40km home may incur additional charges – please give details of the venue when you contact Alex.

Jazz duo and rock/pop band also available

In 2016, Alex started playing with the incredible Phyll Scammell in a jazz-oriented duo called Soupçon (trio or quartet lineups coming soon). There’s more detail here and a new Facebook Page to Like.
