Born in Daytona Beach, Alex Kinsey (@alexkinsey) is a singer/songwriter best known as one half of X Factor winning duo, Alex & Sierra .
After winning the US talent competition in 2013, the duo went on to have two successful albums and three successful tours. In 2017, Alex formed the band BoTalks. Their first single ‘Know U Anymore’ with Modern Family's Sarah Hyland was a breakout hit, with over five million streams and two-and-a-half million plays.
This year, Alex launched his solo career with the edgy, raw pop track 'Simple'. Produced by, Johan Lindbrandt, and written by Lindbrandt and Jackson Morgan, Simple was released independently through Alex’s own label ‘Kinsey’.
“I had been working on Simple for six months. Putting together the right team to help me, finding the right engineers to make it perfect, playing it live to see how it resonates with people. It’s the first time I’m getting to make all of these decisions on my own, and it's terrifying and exhilarating at the same time,” said Alex.
Of this next chapter, Alex said: “I’ve been so fortunate to have an already varied career in music, but it feels like now’s the time to step out from behind the safety of a band and show who I am as a solo artist. I can't wait to see where my own music can take me.
Influenced by John Mayer, Andy Grammer, The Beatles, and his friend Jason Mraz, Alex’s music is a mix of pop, hip-hop and his own style that has already shown to resonate with audiences around the world, and leave them wanting more.
Collectively, Alex has over 370 million plays on Spotify and 200 million views on YouTube. Launching under the name Kinsey, Alex will release his solo EP ‘Party of One’ on May 31st, 2019.
