alex clare too close Lites Review Room

Alex Clare was born in London and grew up listening to his father’s jazz, blues and soul records.  His early favorites were Donny Hathaway and Stevie Wonder.  In a typical “struggling artist” story, he submitted a demo to a record company, they released his first album, “The Lateness of the Hour;” and when it didn’t sell well they dropped him.  He also spent a year as Amy Winehouse’s boyfriend while trying to find a label.

Eventually his song “Too Close” was picked up for use in a series of TV ads for Internet Explorer 9, and his song flew up the charts to #8 in the U.S., #1 in Germany, and #6 in England.  He’s touring Eastern Europe this Fall.
