Graham Alexander, 23, began carving his name in 2000 when he formed his backing band "Roadrunners" while in school. While building a following in the Philadelphia/New York club circuit and touring with the group for half a decade, he wrote and recorded two albums of original material and penned the soundtrack material for ten-time Emmy Award winning director, Kenneth Sheil (NFL Films) and his feature "Friends of Ken."
The group began a hiatus in 2005 while Graham went on to write and produce music for other artists as well as for his own solo record. During this time he remained on the road for five years playing alongside artists such as Todd Rundgren, Badfinger, Blood Sweat and Tears, Grace Potter and The Nocturnals, America, James Taylor, and Norah Jones. It was also during this period that he also lent his production or performance skills to a number of music videos, television shows, films (Splinterheads, New Year’s Eve), and video games (Rock Band).
In 2010 and 2011, Graham debuted on Broadway as the lead in Rain in New York City. During the show's run, he released his first solo E.P. that made its terrestrial radio debut on WXPN Philadelphia in July 2011. After appearing over 150 times on a Broadway stage (first at the Neil Simon Theatre and in 2011 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre) and winning a Drama Desk Award for his performance, Graham departed the production to meet the growing demands of his songwriting and solo music career.
In December of 2011, Graham Alexander's self-titled, full-length album was finally released to worldwide acclaim. Within weeks, the song "Biggest Fan" was featured at #6 on Spotify's "Top Tracks from 2011 - Picked by Users" playlist which generated buzz and strengthened his already strong following. Soon after, he and his band embarked on a solo tour in support of the album performing to packed houses, standing ovations, and further acclaim. This touring resulted in a radio campaign which landed Graham and the band regular rotation for the album on radio stations across the country, which in turn led to his performance at NonComm alongside John Mayer, Willie Nelson, and Brandi Carlile. 2013 brought him back to New York City as an original Broadway cast member of Let It Be, which garnered a positive review of his performance by The New York Times.
On September 18, 2013, Graham's debut album was released in Japan to high praise and rave reviews. The following week it debuted on Japanese radio charts at #25 and continues to climb.
With over a decade of experience, Graham shows no signs of slowing down as he continues to compose for a new project (slated for release in early 2014) in addition to the ongoing tour in support of his solo music career. With his hard work, Graham Alexander has created a foundation for a future with seemingly endless possibilities and an unending love for what he does.
