Alexander Wesley is a Canadian singer songwriter who explores the early part of a relationship through is new track Five/Seven.

By Graeme Smith

I was taken by his storytelling lyrics as he expertly paints a picture of two lovers who were recently strangers but now can’t spend a moment apart. The story is delivered through a laidback electro-acoustic guitar riff and soulful vocals. There’s more narrative packed into Five/Seven than most pop songs on the radio, yet it remains just as accessible.

Alexander first came to prominence through pop covers on YouTube and I’m glad he’s now moved into releasing his own material. I think he’s a wonderful songwriter and I hope you agree. Check out Five/Seven below.
