Alex’s discography is impressive, three albums with Nick Charles, a critically acclaimed solo Hawaiian album “Twilight blues” and after many requests Alex recorded and released, in 2004, his first solo blues album “The blues is here to stay.” The following year Alex followed up with his second Hawaiian album “Alex Burns’ Adventures in Paradise”, again critically acclaimed. Alex yearned to play the wide variety fo music he loves, Blues, Jazz, Hawaiian even Calypso but struggled to find the right line up. Alex then met up with like minded guitarist, Jen Hawley and formed a duo, which explored early jazz and blues and yes, a bit of calypso. They then formed a larger outfit, the Alex Burns and Jen Hawley Band and released a 4 track EP in 2011. The music continues to develop with solo, duo and band work, plus the development of Club Tropicana, a band that plays Hawaiian and more!
