“In a musical arrangement that strikes the best Americana chords, Alex Rhodes rocks your soul…” – Americana Highways

Alex Rhodes believes everyone should walk around with a song in their head. He writes upbeat, down-home music for forward-thinking nostalgics.

“I grew up singing along while my dad played guitar and later sang with any song on the radio. That’s what I bring forward with my music – tap your foot, sing along, dance a bit, have some fun, maybe find some meaning and common ground.”

He recently finished recording “Hometown Rootage” (2020) with Kieran Kelly (Angus & Julia Stone, Sufjan Stevens).

Rhodes been on the same the stages as the likes of Andy Sydow, Bonnie and Taylor Sims, Shanna in a Dress, Antonio Lopez, Caitlin Cannon, Tim Ostdiek, Acoustic Syndicate and Jupiter Coyote.

His songs are easily singable with catchy guitar and harmonica licks over some fine foot drumming. This is what happens when you’re raised on folk music and your dad teaches you to play the guitar.

early life and music

Rhodes grew up in Franklinville, NC listening to his dad play guitar and harmonica at church and local events. He was served a healthy dose of Peter, Paul and Mary; John Denver; Kenny Rogers; Gordon Lightfoot; and Mike Cross growing up.

He finally asked his dad to teach him guitar at age 15, quickly joined a high school band performing for 500+ students, and won a local battle of the bands competition.

Rhodes was lead singer of the rock band Allday Afternoon in Chapel Hill, NC in the early 2000s . Allday Afternoon released three albums and played weekly shows reaching crowds up to 1,000 people.

Rhodes’ current work is based in Americana music, and he is influenced by artists like Wilco, Lord Huron, Ruston Kelly, Josh Ritter and Joe Pug.
