promotional tour. Stage one began last November, taking in the
Central and Southern parts of NSW, from Albury/ Wodonga across to

current single “Watch The Sun Go Down”, off his debut album
“Window Down”, Alex is looking forward to taking his music on the
road once again, to perform, meet and speak to his growing legion
“The Tamworth Country Music Festival was
great” said Alex, “meeting up with so many fans from all over
Australia and having the opportunity to perform in different types
of venues and see that my music is appealing to such a wide range
of people is really rewarding”. “If album sales are a measure of
success at Festivals, Tamworth was very good to me, and I am
looking forward to getting back out on the road”.
This stage of the tour takes in some
twenty seven towns over sixteen days and nights covering the North
coast of NSW and Southern Queensland commencing at Forster/
Tuncurry on Monday 12th March, travelling and performing in Towns
such as Kempsey, Coffs Harbour, Lismore, Ballina, Murwillumbah,
Coolangatta, Tweed Heads, Brisbane, Caloundra, Maroochydore,
Hervey Bay, Bundeberg, Gympie, Toowoomba plus many Towns in
between. “It is a very heavy schedule, with radio interviews at
all hours, in-store CD Shop performances which are fantastic
because you get the chance to, not only perform live, but sign
CD’s and talk to people as well. Then of an evening I will be
entertaining patrons in selected hotels along the way”.
“One Stop Entertainment our CD distributor is being of great
assistance in co-ordinating our in-store performances in
conjunction with my management team. So everything has come
together pretty well and all I have to do now is get out there and
do what I love best- performing”.
