    Alex Mejias is a UVA Law grad turned singer-songwriter from Charlottesville, VA who is winning over music fans way beyond the borders of Central Virginia. His vocals immediately grab your attention and his songs make you sing along. With a sound that is reminiscent of the Beatles meet David Wilcox with a bit of Seal tossed in, his music is quickly generating a widespread fanbase. Before setting out on his own, Alex Mejias shared lead vocals duties in the band Portrait of Another and toured on drums with Nashville rock band Florez. In February 2007, Alex began his solo project, finding his own voice in songwriting and honing his skills as a live performer. His trademark groove and high energy bring each song to life and concerts are full of the intensity and sonority that have made Mejias’s songs popular with his growing grassroots network of fans. With a slew of songs that are fresh and original, his self-titled CD release (Jan '08) carries a classic indie-rock sound that combines melodic hooks with industry-free indie originality. Playing as a soloist or with a full band, Alex's brand of upbeat pop/rock easily lends itself to almost every musical setting.

    After finishing law school and passing the bar exam Alex began pursuing music full time, performing throughout Virginia and beyond. No stranger to the stage, Alex has been a performing songwriter and musician for the past ten years. Before appearing as a solo artist his music career has included playing drums with the Nashville rock band Florez, and acoustic guitar and lead vocals for the Charlottesville band Portrait of Another. Alex has performed on numerous stages throughout the East Coast and beyond including the NorVa, Gravity Lounge, Iota, the Jewish Mother and Satellite Ballroom. Alex’s trademark groove and high energy bring each song to life at live performances. No two shows are alike and every show is full of the intensity and sonority that makes the live concert truly unique.

    When he's not on stage, Alex can be found at Christ Episcopal Church at 5PM each Sunday night leading the music for Anglican College Ministry (ACM). The music of ACM is fresh and original, as can be heard on its April 2007 release “High Street Hymns” which features new musical arrangements of classic hymn texts written and performed by Alex Mejias and former ACM band member Ross Byrd. “I wanted to localize our music,” Mejias says in reference to the High Street Hymns CD, “but I also wanted it to be a resource to other churches looking to combine the lyrical depth of hymns with a more current musical sound and style
