ALEX MAHER HAS DEVELOPED A REPUTATION AS VANCOUVER'S MOST
SOULFUL ONE-MAN BAND.
A multi-instrumentalist (sax, guitar, vocals, beatbox, loop pedal) artist born in Toronto, Alex spent his early years in North York, moving to Vancouver Island with his family for high school. After moving to Vancouver to accept a university scholarship for an education in science, Alex only lasted three years before being offered a contract with Nettwerk Records and trading his textbooks and lab coat for life on the road.
Since then, Alex has been a mainstay in the Vancouver music scene. Seven years ago he founded the Anza Club's Open Mic Night as an opportunity for some of Vancouver's finest local talent to showcase their abilities. The Open Mic night has flourished over the years with Alex collaborating with artists such as Randy Ponzio, David Morin, Little T, and Jess Vaira. Alex has produced and released two albums with DNA6, and performed with bands Kyprios and the Chaperones, Daniel Wesley, and Vince Vaccaro. His musical performances have been included on albums for Bobs and LoLo, as well as in the feature film That One Night and in Hallmark's Cedar Cove.
Utilizing a loop pedal, guitar, saxophone, along with a few percussion instruments and his voice, Alex Maher creates lush layers and complex harmonies all with a driving rhythm that makes you want to move.
Alex released his second solo album, Aether EP, to a sold out crowd at Vancouver's Fox Cabaret on February 27, 2017.
