Alex Pearson is the solo project of the front man of the Edinburgh metal band ‘NIAM’. Alex is a born front man, having taken to the guitar from a young age, Alex went to school in Yorkshire, and moved to Edinburgh in 2004 to attend University at Edinburgh where he formed ‘NIAM’. The band received critical acclaim in the Edinburgh area preforming at prestigious venue’s such a “Bongo Rooms”, ’Bannermans’ “Whistle Binkies” and “Sneaky Pete’s”, In this time the band were the main act on a number of bills, and even had Marcus Mumford of “Mumford and Sons’ and ‘Nick Warpole’ from ‘Charlie Simpson’ open for them. When graduation came around, The Band disbanded, and Alex went soft in his old age.
In his first solo project Alex has moved away from his metal roots, creating a breed of acoustic rock labeled as ‘Acoustic Folk Metal’. ‘Alex Pearson is to Metal as Frank Turner is to Punk Rock’ providing moments of acoustic bliss crossed with overpowering distortion and a healthy dose of cynicism. Alex Pearson’s lyrics have a depth of emotion that equal’s or even surpass those of Finnish “Love Metallers” H.I.M, (a long standing influence) .Despite the heavy metal influences and attitude Alex Pearson has created a catalogue of tracks that can be listened to on a beautiful summer’s day or equally whilst as hung over as a dog. Alex has been working for three months on his first solo album, producing tracks such as ‘Most of us will die in bed’, ‘Mr and Mrs Normal’ and ‘Blue Bird’ among others. Alex’s radio debut came this year when he preformed his signature track ‘No more Penny Lane’ on East Coast FM which was received by a significant worldwide audience with praise from Canada and Australia as well as all over the UK
