Alex Saad began writing music almost as soon as her fingers touched the piano. She instantly fell in love with the art and knew music was her true passion and calling. She began her career at home in Wilmington, Delaware, and became a regular performer at venues such as: World Cafe, Live at the Queen, Homegrown Cafe in Newark, The Kennett Square Inn, The Chris White Gallery in Wilmington, The Well in Hockessin, and more. In July 2012 she had the pleasure of performing with the E.B. Hawkins band at the annual Turks Head Music Festival in West Chester for over 1500 people. Shortly afterwards, she opened for national act Paula Cole at World Cafe Live at the Queen in Wilmington for over 500 people. She also has had the honor of sharing the stage with acclaimed acts such as David Berkeley, Rivers Monroe, and many others.
In May 2013 Alex graduated from Loyola University Maryland with a degree in Physics. Three weeks later she packed her keyboard in her car and headed to Music City. Since moving to Nashville, she has continued growing her writing and performance, and has now been booked for over 100 gigs since her move. She regularly appears at some of the biggest writer’s nights in town, at renowned local venues such as The Basement, Winner’s, Belcourt Taps, Blue Bar, Tin Roof, Hotel Indigo, and many many more. Alex has been featured at popular local events such as “Whiskey Jam” at Winner’s, “New Faces Night” at the Basement, and the World Music Festival at Centennial Park. She is currently working on a new record set for release Summer 2014, produced by world renown percussionist Pino Squillace from the original Musik Mafia.
When you listen to Alex’s music, you are instantly transported by her powerful vocals, intricate piano parts, and haunting melodies. People compare her to artists such as Florence and the Machine, Regina Spektor, and Imogen Heap. However, her new project integrates her natural style with modern percussion and electronic components for a truly amazing sound that is one-of-a-kind.
