Art Alexakis is best known as the charismatic frontman of the multi-platinum rock band Everclear. Formed by Art Alexakis in 1992 in Portland, Oregon, Everclear has enjoyed a lengthy career spanning 9 original studio releases, numerous videos, and thousands of shows and accolades that include a 1998 Grammy nomination for So Much For The Afterglow.
The band remains active today, touring extensively around the world. Alexakis also created and performs as part of the annual Summerland Tour, which features a package bill of popular ’90s alt rock bands. While Art Alexakis has always been the driving force behind Everclear, his solo work finally offers him an opportunity to create music solely on his own, without any preconceived notion or collaborative influence as to what it should sound like. Creating outside of the Everclear realm has given Alexakis the chance to explore styles and sounds that do not necessarily work for his band. His solo work pushed the boundaries of what to expect from an Art Alexakis composition, as he cites everything from classic country to hip hop, to the great acoustic singer-songwriters of the 1970’s as major influences for this record. “I’m pushing my ability and pushing the envelope, and having fun at the same time,” Alexakis continues. “I’ve always wanted to do something like this.”
