Immediately following his performance at the Bateau Bay Bowling Club as part of The Central Coast Country Music Festival Alex will embark on the next stage of his highly successful promotional tour. Stage one began last November, taking in the Central and Southern parts of NSW, from Albury/ Wodonga across to Bega in the South and up as far as Burren Junction in the North West.
Buoyed by the chart success of his 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 of fans.
“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”.
So look out for Alex Watt on the North Coast of NSW and Southern Queensland during March.

Alex Watt
Born and raised on the land in the tiny wheat belt town of Koorda, Alex has always had his heart and soul in the soil, which is strongly reflected in his music.
From a family of six children without television, music was the main feature of family life where his father was a musician playing in a local band.
With this family involvement Alex learnt the basics of the piano and then guitar at a very early age so he could play and sing to entertain family and friends.

Alex started writing his own songs at age 16, with his passion for the land and family values being foremost in his lyrics – “Old Koorda Town” is a prime example of his passion.

The family suffered a major setback of losing the farm when Alex was 21 which has reinforced his will to one day return to the land.

Initially after leaving the farm Alex became a qualified Agricultural Plant Mechanic and coupled this with his love for music by performing at hotels and clubs in the district to gain experience and hone his skills as a songwriter.
A few years later Alex competed in a couple of talent quests including the Telstra Road to Tamworth in Kalgoorlie gaining a measure of success and recognition of his talent.

In April 2004, Alex with wife Sheree and their 3 children packed up and headed to the East Coast to pursue lasting success in the country music industry as a singer/songwriter.
Once again competing in a number of major talent quests to gain exposure, culminating in being awarded Victorian Champion of Champion 2004.

Now settled with his family in Tamworth N.S.W- the Country Music Capital of Australasia, Alex’s career is on the move in a big way. He was a finalist in Australia’s premiere Talent Quest, Star Maker 2005, has formed his own duo and is in high demand in hotels and clubs throughout N.S.W, largely featuring his own material and the unique full sound of his 12 string guitar.

Now everyone will have the opportunity to hear this rising star with the production of his first full album by the exceptionally talented Roger Corbett, due for release in November with the first single “Window Down” to be launched nationally on radio through N.F.S.
Sit back relax and listen.
