A Little About Alex

ALEX MENDENALL is a nationally touring indie soul musician based in Detroit, MI. Drawing from soul, alternative, and jazz, Mendenall's music is high-energy and features carefully crafted wordplay and rich orchestrations. Alex combines acoustic chord progressions with dynamic foot percussion and his expressive melodies and heartfelt storytelling reflect universal ideas of life, death, love, and what it means to be human. 

Performing in venues and festivals across much of the United States, Alex has worked with acts like Tyler Hilton, Ryan Cabrera, Hayley Kiyoko, and Royal Teeth. He has produced and released three EP's: 2013's Here to Stay, 2014's Somewhere Else to Be, and 2015's Nights Like These with Rachel Curtis. Alex has also produced and released two full-length albums: 2016's Into the Hinterland and 2019's City of Stone.

He's lost some loved ones (furry and otherwise), but also, found a little contentment in my life. Through these changes, Alex continued writing and began recording a new album in April 2018...
