Alex Meaney - Guitar Singer - Newbury, South East Event Location: Hampshire, UK Event Type: Wedding 20th May 2017
"We asked Alex to play at our church ceremony, during the signing of the register - we wanted Bob Dylan's 'Forever Young'. His voice reverberated around the church - which is not small and he had no amplification - and was just magical. What a voice! "

Alex Meaney - Guitar Singer - Newbury, South East Event Location: Bristol, UK Event Type: Dutch Courage Album Review 5th September 2016
"Really like the sound - nice production, a lovely openness and some outstanding guitar, keyboards and fiddle. Favourite tracks are I've Held On To You, The Ways Of The Heart (both atmospheric, plaintive and poignant), plus Deep Elem Blues (great, loose feel and searing, raw guitar). Dutch Courage is strong as is Something Good (I note from his website there have been comparisons to Ryan Adams and I can hear that on this track). Alex sounds like a romantic; also sounds like he's been hurt, which as we all know is a veritable asset when it comes to songwriting. Anyway, you can feel that and, as a listener, I believe in him"."

Alex Meaney - Guitar Singer - Newbury, South East Event Location: Lincolnshire, UK Event Type: Birthday Party 16th July 2016
"We wanted someone to play Bob Dylan songs for a large 60th birthday party and we wanted the full Dylan experience i.e. harmonica too. Alex responded to our post and we're so glad he did - there didn't seem to be a Dylan song that he didn't know, and brought along a huge file of Dylan's songs as well as many others. The night ended with him playing around a campfire with everyone singing their hearts out to such crowd-pleasers as 'American Pie', 'Don't Look Back In Anger', 'Hotel California', 'Catch The Wind', interspersed with Dylan's classics. He played for hours and simply made the party; everyone will be talking about it for some time to come!"
