Iconic Great Lakes Troubadour
Alex Bevan has been sharing his voice, guitar, music and stories with audiences for more than forty years. First known as the "Skinny Little Boy" from Cleveland, OH who came to "Chase your 'wimmen' and drink your beer", Alex has made a name for himself throughout the Regional Ohio music scene.
Drawing on his deep skill set of imaginative and honest songwriting combined with an agile, improvisational wit that dovetails wonderfully with his flawless guitar singing, Alex never fails to delight and charm audiences no matter what venue.
His recordings span the gamut from folk to folk rock to pop to children's educational music. He has won a number of awards for his commercial efforts in radio and television including an Emmy for his score of the "American Promise- Rustbelt Blues" for WKCY. Alex's creative works have also contributed to documentary film scores.
The recent release of "I have no Wings", on Fiddler's Wynde Records (his 21st recording of original music) celebrates the mature vision of a songwriter who connects the dots from "back in the day" to the present with poetry, compassion and a knack for melody unmatched by many in the modern music movement.
You need to see him to believe him, and hear him to know him. He is genuinely "LOW TECH and PROUD!
In addition to his adult performances, Alex Bevan has also written music and performed music for the younger audience. In addition to collaborating with Dave Young on a musical fairytale with an environmental message titled “Who Killed the Dragon?”, Alex has penned two well received and award winning critically acclaimed works. “Magic Moments from the Children’s Nature Schoolhouse” (produced for the Lake Metroparks) and “All the Rivers Run” (Produced for the Cuyahoga Valley Environmental Education Center) mark the maturing of Alex’s “children’s educational” music into a style that is engaging to young people and not offensive to parents.
"Probably the most pleasurable aspect of Bevan's show is the diversity of music; the ability to leap into a foot-stomper right after a soft whispered song... extremely enjoyable."
