FRESH: ‘Baby Steps’ – Alex Kennedy

Alex Kennedy re-releases his debut single “Baby Steps”.

by Christopher Smith

Alex Kennedy is a British singer-songwriter and musician from Surrey with a big voice and even bigger aspirations. Alex produces a mixture of material, from soft melody acoustic tracks, to heavier alternative rock songs. He switches up his identity to create excitement through his work. Alex wrote “Baby Steps” a few months before his daughter was born. It’s a song that conjures up all the different thoughts and feelings that he had of bringing a child into the world from both utter excitement to complete fear of the unknown.

Alex quotes: “Songwriting can be very laborious but with this song, I sang the chorus out of nowhere and haven’t changed or edited it from the first moment I sang it. For me, songs like this tend to come around rarely but when they do there’s no need to edit something that comes straight from the heart. I want my music and lyrics to reach out and connect with people on an emotional level, without pretension. I don’t write to order, so everything has to come from the heart”.

A musician who is hard to put a finger on stylistically, his upcoming debut EP, “Square One”, demonstrates his versatility as a songwriter with the acoustic and open turning “Words” to the hardedge rocking “Live For Today”. Playing guitar since the age of 12, Alex comes from a blues, jazz and rock background after studying in his early twenties in Portugal and Devon.
