The Musical World of Alex Nester
In an industry saturated with fly-by-night singles, auto-tune madness, and packaged artist-development, Alex refuses to conform and instead brings back musicians to the art of music-making. Her solo music can only be described as a Hell-hath-no-fury collection of original music chronicling her trials and letdowns with the state of the music business today. But the industry is not the only factor surrounding the creation of this musical tour-de-force.
Alex’s bout with cancer has helped shape her unique sound and filled it with messages of love, faith, positivity, and healing while channeling the retro soul artists of the 60’s and 70’s... Which only makes sense as she is currently touring with Salvador Santana, recently toured with Tito Jackson (of Jackson 5 fame), and has opened as a solo artist for such acts as Earth Wind & Fire, Chicago, The Rascals, Evelyn “Champagne” King, The Stylistics, and Dave Mason. Her resume already includes 12 albums, countless jingles, and over 25 theatrical productions, as well as working with legends such as Carlos Santana, Stevie Wonder, The Four Tops, The Fifth Dimension, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Desi Arnaz, Jr., Alphonse Mouzon, Brandon Fields, and Eric Marienthal.
Uninspired by what's musically "safe", Alex continues to push the boundaries of music making. Her songs and her voice are a musical testament of loss and hope, failure and triumph. It is a promise to the listeners that her music will never be anything less than sincere and honest. And most importantly, it's 100% Alex Nester groove!
- What do you like about Tang Gang?
- I like Tang Gang because...well....what's not to like about Tang Gang?? They're fun, infectious, and bring funk and soul music to life in a way only they can. Great musicians who are also great people playing great music? I couldn't ask for anything more. I'm just thankful to be a part of it all!!
