Some 25 years into his career as a recording artist, Art Alexakis—best-known as the singer-guitarist and sole songwriter behind the iconic alt-rock outfit Everclear—has started a new chapter in his remarkably prolific career, now as a solo artist.
Alexakis has only started to explore his potential as a solo artist, and expects to continue to evolve through the process. The liberating freedom he’s been enjoying since venturing down this new path has expanded his potential musical palette, allowing him to explore a seemingly endless array of ideas. Although he’s not always sure of where those ideas will ultimately lead, one thing is certain: The journey will bring Alexakis—and fans—to places where he’s yet to venture. It will be exciting to hear the sonic offspring of that pioneering voyage.
“I’m totally in the middle of ideas constantly,” Alexakis says. “I play six or seven times a day, and I’m always putting lyrics into my phone. My wife plays ukulele, and I’ll pick it up and write stuff on it. I’ve been teaching myself to play piano, and I’ve got a Wurlitzer in my studio. I’m literally coming up with 10 different ideas a day and I’m putting them all together. I’m really excited, and it’s going to be a lot of fun. This is 100% me.”
