Strumming listeners into a state of serenity and performing worldwide at world-class destinations such as Japan, Finland, France, Ireland and Taiwan, Santa Monica soul stirrer, Alex Siegel, has released his latest album, ‘Röykkä’. Soothing your sorrows and kicking off with “Easy”, Alex illustrates an ethereal vocal ambiance that is potent, intentional and healing. The second track, “Run Home”, kicks off with the flow of a John Mayer track back in his ‘Heavier Things’ days, as Alex is lyrically moved by human connection and the roots that he has established in a place that he is pleased to call home.
“Hope You’ll Be” is the third track that showcases Alex’s broad vocal range and palpable soul as he romanticizes over the individual that he desires most. If you’re a fan of bands such as Plain White T’s and Counting Crows, then the fourth track, “Good Leg”, is the way to go as Alex muses upon his life’s journeys and the chapters in which he felt most stable and grounded.
The sixth track, “Girl”, is an upbeat dose of sunshine that lyrically tells the tale of a woman who doesn’t find satisfaction in the mundane and seeks a life that aligns with the magical excitement that is tied to living in love. The eighth track, “Quiet King”, portrays the slower pace of existence that Alex desires to lead within his daily routine as he matures into a place of ease that is clearly his cup of tea. Closing out with “Stronger Than Love”, Alex creates a mesmerizing effect that takes listeners into a dreamy world abounding with depth, passion, and liberation.
Alex Siegel is a model of an artist that is taking an alternative road and following his soul wherever he may go. Give both ‘Röykkä’ and his discography a listen on Bandcamp.
