Nile Alexander is a Boston based soul/R&B singer-songwriter who attends Berklee College of Music. He is a natural singer and performer and the band has a versatile and grooving energy that compliments his writing in a remarkably tasteful way.
Alexander is backed up by his three piece band, consisting of Kevin McGowan on drums, Alex Labrie on guitar, and Casey Andersen who also attend Berklee. Alexander and the band have a classic R&B sound with a modern writing style. They are influenced by the likes of John Legend, Frank Ocean, Erykah Badu, and Marvin Gaye. The group has been busy gigging and recording in the Boston and New York area for the past year.
