About the Where Do You Go EP, Alexander says “I’m beyond excited to share these new songs with everyone so I can get on with my life and write more new ones. Such is a life of slavery to art — a massive rush to create again and again. I enjoyed these songs the day I wrote them and today I drop them, like abandoned children, upon your doorstep. Be kind to them, or pass them like a hot potato to others.”
“Maybe some people write impersonally, creating a fictional world, like a playwright, for others to enjoy. I have seldom been able to do this, as I have found the songwriting process exhausting emotionally unless I have some proverbial gas in the tank.
Joni Mitchell once aptly sang, “Songs are like tattoos, you know I’ve been to sea before…”Check out my new tats.”
Of the romantic “Tonight” video, which was directed by Brooks Reynolds, Alexander
notes “There’s nothing better than doing things with your friends. So happy I could make this video with Brooks, Jasmine and the crew. Jas and I almost drown during the pool scene out of sheer exhaustion, making the chorus lyrics “We want to live” somewhat more impacting personally.”
Alexander Fairchild is a unique artist that is soon to be a household name. A one-man band, his songs have echoes of legends past -The Beatles, The Beach Boys and Joni Mitchell to name a few – and he’s amassed a solid community of fans via his captivating live performances.
