ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The third album from Los Angeles solo artist Shane Alexander entitled The Sky Below promises to be something special.

The dynamic collection of ten new songs was recorded over two weeks during late September / early October in Los Angeles. Shane once again teamed up with LA production duo, Heroes & Villains, with whom he made his 2006 release Stargazer. Longtime sideman and co-conspirator, Chad Crawford appears on bass, Adam Benjamin on piano, and returning from Stargazer are: drummer Charlie Paxon (James Blunt, Colin Hay), Billy Mohler (Macy Gray, Liz Phair) on electric guitar, piano, keyboards and bass, and Kim Bullard (Goo Goo Dolls, Tori Amos) on Hammond organ. Veteran producer / engineer / mixer Toby Wright (Alice In Chains, Wallflowers, Chris Whitely, Trey Anastasio) mixed the record.

Stylistically, the new album has a sound all its own and features some of Alexander’s best studio performances to date. There are more up-tempo songs than his previous effort, including the anthemic opener “Amsterdam”, the driving “Difference of Opinion” and the groovy “Outside the Lines”. After touring so much as a solo acoustic artist, Shane sought to get back to a “band sound” and something that could get a crowd moving. However, there are still the trademark acoustic ballads - the title track is a delicate, infectious song with soft finger-picked guitar and doubled vocals that whisper “all is as it should be” and the sunshine-infused “Coffee Kiss” will be sure to please fans of songs like “Valentine” and “Front Porch Serenade” from his two previous efforts

In 2007 Shane Alexander performed for the biggest audiences of his career when he opened SEAL’s U.S. tour, in addition to his own touring in the US, Canada, Netherlands, Germany, France and Belgium. Nearly all of the songs from the Stargazer album were licensed for television, including: ABC’s Brother and Sisters, Big Shots, and What About Brian?, ABC Family’s Wildfire, CBS’s Criminal Minds, FOX’s Bones, MTV’s Real World and Laguna Beach and shows and movies for Nickelodeon, and Lifetime – exposing Shane’s songs to millions worldwide.

In 2006, Alexander toured constantly and was asked to open two U.S. tours with Jewel and one U.S./Canada tour with Lisa Marie Presley – armed only with an acoustic guitar; he won over thousands of new fans night after night.

Shane Alexander’s The Sky Below is scheduled for a February 2008 release with a full band international tour to follow.

The Sky Below
I discovered the song Amsterdam on my son's I-Pod and realized that I had to get the entire CD. EVERY track is fantastic, my favorite being Outside the Lines. I listened to it almost non-stop for 8 hours traveling from Oklahoma City to Lawrence Kansas and back, and cannot get enough of it. I hope Shane comes to OKC soon, my wife and I will be right there listening to our new favorite singer. Go Shane, You rock!!

A Star On The Rise
Shane Alexander's newest album (and I own them all), The Sky Below, is his finest achievement yet. Excellent from beginning to end. Insightful lyrics, a natural sense of melody, and a strong, beautiful voice. A singer/songwriter whose star is definitely on the rise.

The Sky Below
As with the two previous cd's I own by Shane, I love it. His voice is so amazingly clear and at time haunting. They lyrics are thought provoking and balanced. His music seems to just keep getting better. I recommend it to everyone!
