Alex Rex Tour Dates

Founding member and songwriter of folk-rock band Trembling Bells, Alex Rex sings songs of love, loss and loathing. Misanthropy has never sounded so glorious.

Known for his continuing collaborations with Alasdair Roberts and Richard Youngs, and for his work with elusive Jandek, Alex grew up in Leeds and now resides in London. An accomplished drummer, percussionist and singer who draws from jazz, psychedelia and the darker side of folk music, Otterburn reunites Alex with two of his Trembling Bells band mates, Lavinia Blackwall and Mike Hastings.

Aside from being a staple part of the folk-rock revival, Rex has performed alongside artists including Lucky Luke, The One Ensemble of Daniel Padden, Ashtray Navigations, Alastair Galbraith and Isobel Campbell. He has also toured with several folk artists who have enjoyed a late rediscovery of their work, including Scott Fagan, Nick Garrie, Mike Heron and Shirley Collins.

Alex’s new release was the product of a cataclysmic event in his personal life which happened in April 2017. Sadly, Alex's brother Alastair passed away unexpectedly in his sleep on his canal boat in Leeds. The youngest of three boys, Alastair embodied all his family's best qualities and was a charming and spontaneous friend to anyone lucky enough to cross his path.

Forged in pain and made in Glasgow, Otterburn heaves with sorrow, despair, and a sense of humour and unique perspective that could only come from experiencing deep loss.
