Raised on legends like Stevie Wonder and inspired by modern envelope pushers like Anderson Paak, Nashville-based R&B artist Alex Slay has never been a rule follower. As A&R Factory put it, his “completely distinctive sound fuses nostalgically warm Neo-Soul Jazz Pop tones around roots-deep R&B and light melodic Blues in a way which I can guarantee you’ve never heard the like of before.” A quiet kid from small-town Florida, Slay’s music career took off after winning a local talent show and being offered an opportunity to tour around the world from Venice to Barcelona performing in front of hundreds each night aboard cruise ships. When he finally settled down, he chose an unconventional city for R&B: Nashville. He has since made quite the name for himself in the city’s budding R&B scene, performing regularly at iconic venues like Flamingos and the Hutton Hotel and collaborating with acclaimed producers like Will Bowers (Snoop Dog) and Danny Polo (Landon Sears). In a city of superstars, Slay’s incredible raw talent shines through precision that can only be cultivated by a true dedication to the craft.
