ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
People are attracted to the humor, regardless of their religious upbringing. Therefore, Nick's comedy albums--"A Time to Laugh" (2000), "Eternal Life: The Party Album" (2002), and Nick's latest--"I Wanna Be Debated" (2006), have served as powerful tools to foster positive conversations about the Catholic Christianity.


Nick Alexander converted to Catholicism in 1993. Shortly afterward, he became a dynamic worship leader for many diverse Christian groups. During this time, Nick had occasionally written parody songs to sharpen his own songwriting skills. But Nick had never taken this side of his music seriously… he always saw it as a stepping stone for his "serious" works.


Then, in 1999 went to a Catholic Association of Musicians conference. It was after-hours at a Pizza Hut that Nick was handed a guitar and pushed to play his silly songs. The crowd was stunned with delight. Nobody had ever attempted what Nick had done before: a perfect blend of orthodoxy with humor. It was through the unanimous prompting of his peers that Nick felt encouraged to pursue an all-comedy recording.


In 2000, Nick has released his first all-comedy CD. It contains ten parody songs and one serious praise/worship song. The songs range from the Sixties (i.e, "I Got You Saved") to the Nineties ("Tradition (500 Years)").

In 2002, Nick returned with his follow-up, "Eternal Life - the Party Album". It contains even more parody songs and one serious praise/worship song. The songs range from the Sixties (i.e, "Monastery Trip", a parody of White Room by Cream) to current hits ("Melt Me" a parody of Pinch Me by BNL).

The ensuing years were a whirlwind of crazy activity--playing for thousands of teenagers at World Youth Day (Toronto), and at youth festivals such as "Proud 2 B Catholic" and the National Federation of Catholic Youth Ministry. He was also invited to conduct a workshop at the Association of Applied Therapeutic Humor.

In 2006, Nick released his latest release, "I Wanna Be Debated"--a comedy album like no other. Nick focused his attention on real-world issues, such as abstinence, depression, obesity, and the postive power of the priesthood. But the spin he put on these topics made for irrisistable listening: Nick parodies songs from as diverse songs from Grease, Footloose, Abba, The Beatles and Queen.

All three releases are completely orthodox and very, very funny. They are perfect for CCD classes, for parties, and even for R.C.I.A.! And as an evangelistic tool, it is light on its feet, but packs an apologetical wallop.

Nick Alexander resides in Stratford, CT and has been married since 2001. He leads worship at diocesan Charismatic Prayer Meetings and still writes praise songs. He is available to perform for youth events, school rallies and anybody who will take him.
