Alexander is the solo guitar music made by New Haven, CT native David Shapiro (who also performs with Kath Bloom, in Headroom, and in Nagual). Drawing from a wide range of guitar traditions, Alexander live sets vary from fingerstyle acoustic guitar music to psychedelic feedback-oriented improvised electric guitar excursions. Equally influenced by the melodic stylings of Robbie Basho and John Fahey, the guitar-damage of Alvarius B, and the electric echoes of Keiji Haino, Alexander offers a unique synthesis of guitar vocabulary imbued with a deep emotionality. He has shared bills with Kath Bloom, Daniel Bachman, Sarah Louise, Loren Connors, Kate Village (Major Stars), and more. His self-released debut LP is distributed by Forced Exposure.
