Alex Guthrie is an Atlanta-based soul singer, songwriter, and guitarist. His powerful, soulful voice and insightful lyrics have established him in the Southeast as a must-see artist. Combining influences from classic soul and rock, blues, and folk, Alex has a sound that bridges genres and connects, emotionally, to the music lover in everyone. After traveling much of the country in a beat-up, old camper van, playing for and with all that he met along the way, he’s found his calling in life: bringing people together with open arms, a smile, and a song.
Traveling the world at a young age, Eli was unaware that all he saw would lead him to seeing his dreams coming true. The talented musician and singer isn't afraid to use lyrics and beats to display raw emotions. One fond childhood memory that stuck with him was going to the Jason Mraz concert with his mom, where Christina Perry opened. The excitement, anxiousness of the crowd, and pure joy that the artists invoked, moved him. He knew then, that someday he would recreate that moment.
With supportive parents by his side, he never had to limit his passions. Eli has used that to add fuel to his drive and ambition. His grandfather told him to put his best in everything he does, and this happened to be the day before he passed away unexpectedly.
Eli made sure to never forget what he was told, and he has never stopped giving life and music his all.
"I want my music to affect people. I want it to make them happy and energetic, not sad, because I feel music should uplift," states the singer. The wisdom and insight, even at a young age, coupled with talent and a dream; has set Eli up for success. The stars are now aligned, and he's the brightest one.
