Alexander is the solo guitar music made by New Haven, CT native David
Shapiro (who also performs with Kath Bloom, in Headroom, and in Nagual).
Drawing from a wide range of guitar traditions, Alexander live sets vary from
fingerstyle acoustic guitar music to psychedelic feedback-oriented improvised
electric guitar excursions. Equally influenced by the melodic stylings of Robbie
Basho and John Fahey, the guitar-damage of Alvarius B, and the electric
echoes of Keiji Haino, Alexander offers a unique synthesis of guitar vocabulary
imbued with a deep emotionality. He has shared bills with Kath Bloom, Daniel
Bachman, Sarah Louise, Loren Connors, Kate Village (Major Stars), and more.
His self-released debut LP is distributed by Forced Exposure.
