Alex has always been intrigued by the mystery around the perfect song and started dissecting some of his favorite tunes. From the beatles to stevie wonder, from hendrix to the police, from bob dylan to depeche mode, with a sweet spot for smooth lyrics and folk melodies like the ones from james taylor. Alex layan is a complete artist and multi instrumentalist.
He has played with big names like celine dion, james blunt, alpha blondie, christophe mae, florent pagny, sinclair, etc... His talent as a composer has been requested for different projects like tv shows, commercials and short films.
