Update 29/5/2023: Woohoo Canberra, that was fun! And cold?! Check out these photos below and also footage from our gig. Also, Zuko & Typical Drew (2 local support acts) did fantastically, and we’ll look forward to seeing them again sometime soon. Cheers to The Pot Belly Bar for having us, and see you ACT’ers again another time!
Update 16/5/2023: Tickets are now on sale for my album launch concert at Black Bear Lodge in August! Get in early for this one and don’t be a stranger for what will be a killer night for sure, with Phantasm Street and Sour Straps (Gold Coast) playing support!
Update 14/5/2023: In 2 weeks, Canberra will play host to Alex Edwards Band and we couldn’t be more excited. It’s our second interstate show of the year, and it’s sure to be a real firework. Otherwise, stay tuned for a show announcement on Tuesday (my album launch concert – details incoming!) and wish me luck in my SXSW Sydney application. Gotta be in it to win it! In the meantime, check out these shots of the new band!
Update 29/4/2023: Announcement! There is a new band! Due to personal commitments, Bronson and Nathan have had to move on from Alex Edwards Band, but their shoes are ably filled by Kaylie and Kameka. It is with great excitement that we press on together as a team in preparation for Canberra next month – our first gig as a group! Stay tuned for more news next week!
Update 15/4/2023: Unfortunately, due to storms, Sydney airport was closed and we couldn’t land the airplane in order to get on stage at The Moshpit Bar on Thursday just passed. Sad! We’ll have to make up for it in Canberra next month. News coming at you soon, regardless! Also, 6 weeks until “Fantasia Fugue” is out. Hang tight!
Update 27/3/2023: Gee Melbourne, that was fun! Thanks so much to all the bands who played with us and all those who helped make our little two-show run happen. Check out in the videos section of this website both gigs filmed in full and in 4K, and below the song “Revolutions” from our second concert at The Worker’s Club. Next stop, Sydney!
Update 13/3/2023: Wow, time flies! Or Tempus Fugit, as it is in Latin. It’s been almost two weeks since the last post – a window of time which saw us finally play at Greaser – it was a great night! Check out the live recording of the entire set below, as posted on YT in 4K. Otherwise, have a great start to your week all!
Update 2/3/2023: Amid tour planning for Melbourne for the end of this month, these last few days have contained some recording and collaborations for my sixth album “Felonious Friends”! Yes, that’s right, the fifth album isn’t out yet, and I’m already working on number six! This issuing is sure to titillate and transcend previous musical excursions – because each of the twelve songs that are planned for the LP all feature other singers – but you’re going to have to wait until December for that. Until then, keep your eyes and ears peeled for Fantasia Fugue, which is 91 days away at this point! Otherwise, hope you’re having a nice week, and stay groovy!
Update 25/2/2023: Thanks to Gabi Rankine for her wonderful shots of Alex Edwards Band’s outing at Tomcat on Thursday! You can view these in the gallery, but here’s a preview below!

Have you pre-saved yet? Be across it, and help support us as we attempt to spin the Spotify algorithm in our favour! Meanwhile, here’s the video from Ric’s – replete with 4K resolution!
Update 13/2/2023: Week two of our radio campaign for “Brisbane Ramblings” commences today, and thanks to Hush Hush Biz Magazine and BMA Magazine for their respective write-ups. Of Brisbane Ramblings, BMA wrote, “…subverting the personal and dousing the dense colouring across a backdrop of freewheeling jangle” – wow, such praise! Thanks to Melton Community Radio in VIC for adding the song to rotation, too. Can’t wait for the tune and its video to drop next week! In the meantime, AEB are playing a free entry show at Ric’s this Thursday night from 7pm. See you there, hopefully!

2022 Queensland Music Award-nominated Singer-songwriter, Alex Edwards
After earning industry praise for his sophomore release “Fealty Fjords” with the Billy Thorpe Scholarship nomination at the Queensland Music Awards in 2022, Alex Edwards’ alternative-indie outings to date tell the tale of mental health awareness, personal struggle and… well… extra-terrestrial life. Now, after having long-cemented his debut into the tapestry of Brisbane acoustic folklore (via the piece de la resistance “Flight Frost” mastered via Abbey Road in 2015) Alex in 2022 seeks his fifth publication with Brisbane stalwart producer Hugh Middleton. This release, due for publication in June 2023, is an indie-grunge imaginarium and is sure to be a unique twist in Alex’s presentations to date. Hang tight for shows, in the meantime, with Alex Edwards Band!
