Alex Haynes & the Fever

Debuting with ‘Last Train’ in 2011, followed by ‘Bandit Blues Motel’ in 2014 and the latest album, ‘Howl’, in 2018 on Appaloosa Records, the singer/guitarist’s sound is filtered through the blues, drawing from the British blues boom of the ’60s, ’50s R&B and Rock ‘n’ Roll, and artists such as RL Burnside, John Lee Hooker and Jessie Mae Hemphill. However, when Alex sings his impressive vocals betray his soul influences – with echoes of Otis Redding and Etta James.

With regular performances solo, duo and with a his full-band – The Fever – appearing in the UK and Europe – having played across Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, and in Amsterdam and Moscow and with a regular and longstanding solo residency at the Blues Kitchen – Shoreditch in London.

Both solo and with his band he has supported artists including US R&B legend Geno Washington, UK bluesman Big Boy Bloater, and in spring ’19 will be supporting one of the all time greats, Bobby Rush, at the Salaise Blues Festival. He has appeared at festivals such as Red Rooster (UK), Blues River (Italy), and the Vintage Weekender (France).
