Born and raised in Detroit, Alex Winston is a classically trained opera vocalist and indie pop singer/songwriter with an unmistakable voice. Her music pairs the upbeat with the down-low of real life in a way that stands out in the world of pop music. Winston started recording solo material and touring before even finishing high school, which lead up to Island Records’ release of her critically acclaimed debut album, King Con, in 2012. She toured with acts like Grouplove and Neon Trees after being taken under the wing of another major label for The Day I Died EP in 2015, but her sophomore full-length album (to follow that EP) never got released. Right around that time, Winston began her battle with Lyme disease which lasted over a year. She is now operating independently, writing more music than ever before, and she’s ready to share her new songs with the world. In 2017, Winston teamed up with friend and MS MR member Max Hershenow for their side project, Post Precious, which featured collaborations with artists like Charli XCX and Ryn Weaver. And in 2018, Winston released her comeback single (and Drop Dead Gorgeous movie themed music video) “Tourist” which is available online for streaming and download now. 2019 will see her releasing more new music and heading out on the road.
