Alex Moses is a songwriter and producer based in Melbourne, Australia. As the singer and guitarist for east-coast trio Columbus, Alex has been lucky enough to write multiple records, tour with international artists like You Me At Six and The Ataris and perform at an array of Australian festivals including Soundwave and Unify.
In early 2019 Alex released his first solo single Keep In Touch produced by Joel Quartermain (Merci, Mercy, Fergus James, Meg Mac) showing a softer and more intimate side to his songwriting. The track was featured in the triple j unearthed podcast, on the TOPS radio show and received Triple J play.
Alex has played solo sets at New Years on the Hill and Unify Festivals, House of Vans (Melbourne) and toured nationally with Yellowcard frontman William Ryan Key.
Through Mushroom publishing, Alex has co-written with Joel Quartermain (Eskimo Joe), Luke Boerdom (Violent Soho), Lorenzo Sillitto (The Temper Trap) and Harmony James (International Songwriting Competition Winner).
Alex’s new single Rotten, is a hopeful plea to see the glass half full, despite that the universe seems to constantly pour out most of your water. Written and recorded in Alex’s home studio during Melbourne’s lockdown, Rotten calls to make peace with the inevitability of tragedy and uncertainty, cherish the little things and fall in love with your imperfect and often difficult life.
Quote: “I started writing the chorus and first draft of the lyrics for Rotten hung-over one morning before work. Feeling depressed and flat, I didn’t really want to write anything at all. But the sun streaming in the window and a coffee picked up my mood, and got me thinking that even when things go wrong (which they do all the time), everything will be alright in the end.”
