Alexander Ebert – “Truth”

Artist: Alexander Ebert
Album: Alexander
Release Date: March 1, 2011
Featured Track: “Truth”

You know that band Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros? Yeah, you might have heard of them. Well, Alexander Ebert – the lead singer for that band – is about to release his debut solo album featuring ten lovely tunes he wrote and composed entirely himself. Such a crafty and talented fella. And from what I’ve heard I quite prefer his solo work. He sorta has that Andrew Bird quality that is hard to resist. But Edward Sharpe fans, do not fret. Alexander has not defected. He will be back in the studio to finish recording the second LP for the band due out later this year. Look for him at SWSW this year.
