The singer and songwriter from South Carolina known as Alex Jenkins has released his debut EP album, “The New Me.” The record contains six original Jenkins tracks for an approximate total listening time of half an hour. It has been proudly published as an independent release outside the control of the corporate music industry. Heartfelt, intimate, mellow and bright, “The New Me” from Alex Jenkins is a record about personal metamorphosis and perseverance in the face of turmoil.
Alex Jenkins cites as main inspirations John Mayer, Ryan Adams, Bob Dylan, and Paul Simon, perhaps the four most enduring and influential male singer-songwriters today. His own sound takes elements from each but retains an individuality which sprouts both from Jenkins' songwriting and natural singing tenor. Fans of Nick Drake are sure to find much they appreciate in Jenkins' tone, songwriting, and musical creativity overall.
Also not unlike the work of Nick Drake, “The New Me” by Alex Jenkins is a highly personal record born of nonfiction elements and emotional expression. Asked to comment on the themes of his introspective debut EP, the singer reveals that “This release is about recent life events.”
Alex Jenkins has been playing music since the age of 14 and has been passionate about songwriting ever since. Two singles from his debut record, “Coming Back To You” and “We Hold On” are currently in radio rotation and enjoying enthusiastic listener feedback. He has performed live in Atlanta, GA, Charleston, SC, and Greenville, Long Beach, and Charlotte, NC.
On the occasion of his debut record release, Jenkins had this to say to his loyal fan base: “Thank You for all your support! It really means so much to me! Thank You!”
“The New Me” by Alex Jenkins is available online worldwide at over 700 digital music stores.
