    The Alex Gregory Band live at The Cove Cafe Bar

    LIKENED to both KT Tunstall and Beth Orton, Exeter-based singer/songwriter Alex Gregory debuts at The Cove on Saturday, October 3.

    Described as an ‘awesome songwriter with the voice of a slightly naughty angel’ and ‘the darling of BBC Introducing in Devon’, the 18-year-old showcases her incredible talent - complete with band - in Hope Cove.

    Hard work and commitment has seen her featured in Acoustic Magazine and Q Magazine, on BBC Radio, nominated for the South West Music Awards (Best Acoustic Act), chosen to play live at the Paralympic Games, picked as Editors Choice for BalconyTV.com and for the Richer Unsigned: Best Of playlist.

    Acclaimed second EP, ‘Critical Perfection’ wooed the critics and with the help of her new band, she’s hitting the road to perform her own intimate and haunting material and a few carefully chosen covers.

    Her ‘sublime’ performance of Michael Jackson’s ‘Smooth Criminal’ for YouTube channel, On’t Sofa, has gathered thousands of views.

    Alex (vocals, acoustic guitar, piano) is joined by Isla Farr (backing vocals), George Thomas (bass), Robbie Gates (guitar) and Nick Matthews (drums).

    Live from 9.30pm, admission is free.

    Music Meal Deals will once again be in operation – booking is advised.

    What people are saying:

    ▪ “…its singer songwriter Alex Gregory who gathers the most plaudits here. By twinning folk-tinged heartbreak with a KT Tunstall-tuned vocal heft, she’s primed for altitudes way beyond the reach of a West London Restaurant”  Q Magazine (Matt Allen)
    ▪ “Hey Alex! A big well done for your performance last night! I was amazed…. Love & light on the journey! Mx” Martin Stephenson
    ▪ “Singer-songwriter Gregory’s intimate pop vocals carry enough heft to have drawn comparisons to Adele’s soulful tones. Certainly, a raft of folksy, percussive guitar riffs and lost-love tales suggest a songwriting potential way beyond her years.” qthemusic.com
