Alex Ohm: A brief introduction
Midlands based songsmith, Alex Ohm has become a renowned name on the local music scene and is currently writing and recording new material to release later this year. Alex’s alternative, cinematic symphonies reflect the wide range of influences that inspire his work and come together to create his unique sound.
With a number of sold out shows already under his belt, Alex has also opened shows for the likes of Ian Brown, The Charlatans, Ocean Colour Scene and Peter Doherty to name a few as well as touring worldwide.
Debut EP 'At first a drop, then a flood' was released in May 2017 to huge praise from radio and press alike. ‘Through the storm’ was taken from that EP and released as a single in October as well becoming the soundtrack for the John Lewis promotional video for their Birmingham flag ship store.
January 2018 saw Ohm release ‘Retreat’ into the world exhibiting a different side to Alex’s song writing; fusing indie, hip hop, and classical influences together seamlessly. Ohm launched the single with a sold out Birmingham show as well as dates in London and the iconic Rough Trade Records store in Nottingham in association with BBC Introducing and Y Not Festival.
It has been a whirlwind start of the year for this rising star and his band. This is one act to keep an eye on in 2018.
