“Blues/rock guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter Alex Lopez comes off like the emerging star he is on his new record. Together everyone involved made a killer contemporary blues/rock album that’s tight, well-executed, and multifaceted.” – Rock and Blues Muse
Alex Lopez is an acclaimed guitarist, prolific songwriter and emerging artist recognized for his electrifying live performances. Mixing blues, rock, pop, and even funk, Lopez and his band, The Xpress, create a blues sound that is uniquely mesmerizing within a framework of melodic memorable songs.
In 2013, Lopez released the self-recorded album Back Bedroom Blues a collection of all original blues and blues/rock songs on which he played all instruments and introduced his formidable skills as a blues guitarist and singer/songwriter. In 2015 Lopez released his second CD Is it a Lie with his newly formed band The Xpress to excellent reviews. His third album, Slowdown achieved a new level of success with international recognition and critical acclaim rising up the blues, jam, and Americana charts with worldwide airplay and earning Alex fans across the globe. That was followed up with Yours Truly, Me… which went to #6 on the blues radio charts and positioned Alex to continue his ascent in contemporary blues.
Lopez just released his most ambitious album to date. The pure blues-rocker Rising up is already at the top of the radio and billboard charts and reviewers are saying it “is sure to be one of this year’s best blues/rock albums.”
