Alexander Wolfe Short Info

Alexander Wolfe (born 24 December 1981) is a musician and songwriter, influenced by artists such as Nick Drake, Neil Young and Bon Iver.

Born Alexander Gordon de Menthon he grew up Woolwich in South East London. His French grandfather, Henri de Menthon, left him in his will a Rembrandt lithograph which Alexander later sold to fund the making of his debut album and the beginning of his musical career.
Upon leaving school Alexander formed his first band, 'Taxi', with Jamie Cullum. The band enjoyed mild live success and toured with Paul Weller before finally imploding in the summer of 2002. It is then that Alexander took his Canadian grandmother’s maiden name “Wolfe” and decided to pursue a solo career.

His debut Album, Morning Brings a Flood, was released on Dharma Records in March 2010. Since, Morning Brings a Flood has garnered significant critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic. The New York Post called it "the most beautiful album heard in years. Period". It also received four-star reviews in Q magazine and Uncut which described the album as, "An object lesson in how to wring out every last drop of emotion". The Sunday Times simply declared it, "A beautiful album".
The single 'Song For the Dead' was used as the opening and closing music for BBC 2 sitcom Whites starring Alan Davies.
Alexander's sophomore album Skeletons was recorded over a weekend and released in September 2012.
Alexander wrote and performed the soundtrack for the critically acclaimed play “The Trench”. He will be back on the road with the theatre group in autumn 2014.
