Every performer has a unique motivation for pursuing a career in the music scene. Some do it for fame, while others do it for fortune. However, it goes without saying that the most successful and renowned artists are those who are genuinely passionate about what they do. After all, their love for the craft reflects in their music which effortlessly captivates audiences. One such inspiring individual is singer-songwriter Alexander Yearns.
Hailing from Palisades Park, New Jersey, the gifted young man is known for his versatility and incredible artistry. But, on top of that, what makes him stand out is his commitment to creating songs that reflect his inner feelings and emotions. Because of this, he has captured the admiration and approval of countless music enthusiasts.
Over the years, the brilliant musician has released several albums with varying genres and unique sounds. For example, his first EP, launched in October 2018 called To Each of Us, has a psychedelic folk-rock feel. It is a five-track collection produced at Strange Weather Recording Studio in Brooklyn that highlights an experimental and, at times, dominating, moody soundscape while the gifted singer’s intoxicating voice hovers over.
On the other hand, his second album is a full-length LP, Phoenix, which features a more mellow experience. Unlike his first release, it has a more subtle sound stripped back. Each track has a raw theme, representing the artist’s experiences as he embarks on a new chapter in his life.
His early exposure to the art allowed Alexander Yearns to develop a nuanced relationship with music. His love for the craft began when he was introduced to the beautiful music of none other than Elvis Presley. The king of rock n roll’s musical prowess not only hypnotized the young man but, more importantly, also awakened his passion for pursuing one of life’s most potent intangibles: music.
Aside from that, he has a wealth of experience and knowledge in the business as he started his career when he was only 13. He was the drummer of a New Jersey rock n roll band together with his older brother and a few of their neighbors. In addition, he helped the group with writing songs and making records, even going on tour alongside his bandmates.
Eventually, the visionary wanted to scale his music profession to greater heights and rise to the top of the industry as a solo act. So after six years, he left. Then, finding more time to hone his craft, he started learning the guitar and composing more songs. The rest, as they say, is history.
Now, Alexander Yearns is a highly successful artist with remarkable discography under his belt. Moving forward, the inspiring musician hopes to continue his upward trajectory. In fact, the hard-working man is currently getting ready to record his next album, and he plans to drop it as soon as possible. His songs and albums are available on online streaming platforms, such as Spotify. He also has a year’s worth of collection of instrumentals exclusively released on Bandcamp called My Void.
