“Tada!!”, from her first word Faith Alexa was destined for a life of entertaining. Named partially in honor of Faith Hill, Alexa cites her namesake as her earliest musical influence. As a child, Alexa recalls setting up her stuffed animals and putting on concerts for them, performing the entirety of her favorite Faith Hill album for the crowd.
While she recalls “trying to write songs” at the age of six, Alexa tells Worlds Of Country that she truly dove into songwriting at the age of 12. At the time Alexa used writing as a way to express herself during what she describes as “some really tough times”. Alexa credits this time period for allowing to grow as a writer and playing a formative role in getting her to where she is today.
Alexa’s love for entertainment has brought her to Nashville, where she attends Belmont University. Sonically, Alexa describes her musical style as “ethereal Country” and a fusion of deep writing with an airy production style allowing her songs to breathe. Alexa’s latest single, “North Carolina” is a tremendous example of who Alexa strives to be as an artist. Written about an ex from North Carolina, Alexa says that the chorus to the song came to her while waiting on the Starbucks drive-thru line. Throughout the song, Alexa expresses regret over the downfall of this relationship, for which Alexa admits she’s to blame, a fact which she admits made it hard for her to write this song. Alexa’s big voice coupled with the beautiful harmonies from Gloria Anderson come together to form four minutes of sonic beauty.
