Alex Southey (he/him) is a singer-songwriter based in Toronto/Tkaronto, Canada.


Southey began as a solo acoustic artist in 2019. With each subsequent release (2019's winter folk Christmastown LP, the 2020 bells-and-whistles follow-up You're Not Just A Body to Me LP, the 2021 moody, melodramatic ...And the Country Stirred, its 2022 idiosyncratic, glitchy little brother My Nights On the Island EP, and most recently 2023's explosive, emotive Common Fantasies EP), Southey has developed an increasingly passionate fanbase, along with positive recognition, play, and coverage from CBC Radio, Exclaim! Magazine, Dominionated, Canadian Beats, NXNE, Wintersong Festival, Tinnitist, The Sound Cafe, CHCH Morning Show, and a slew of Canadian college radio stations.

In July 2023 he released his first single and music video post-Common Fantasies called "Never Listen".

In late January 2024, Southey performed and participated as a co-panelist at Stouffville's Wintersong Music Festival.

Southey released a single entitled, "I Think I Smell a Melody", on Thursday, November 23, 2023 in tandem with the release of an appearance as a guest on the Canadian-music-based podcast 20 or 20 by Dominionated.

On February 6, 2024 Southey spoke to CBC journalist Reid Southwick about Spotify, streaming, and the music industry as a whole.

On February 8, 2024 Southey released his third and final single, "God's Green Earth", from the upcoming full length LP Entertainers Bring May Flowers, due out May 16, 2024, his first LP since 2021.


He released the official album artwork Monday, February 5, which features a painting by his mother, Lianna Southey.
