Alberta based Country Pop Recording Artist, Alex Hughes
If opposites attract, when they do come together, you get Alex Hughes. Having been raised equally on the sounds of classic country and R&B, Alex’s take on pop-country delivers more soul and grit than one might expect from her 5’2” frame. With influences ranging from the likes of Linda Ronstadt and LeAnn Rimes to Snoop Dogg and Destiny’s Child, Alex possesses a distinct sound that weaves soulful runs into classic country melodies driven by pop beats. Regardless of whether it's time to dim the lights or turn up the bass, Alex Hughes delivers a performance that audiences won’t forget.
Her latest single, “Tee Time”, released on July 15th is pure country/pop ear candy. Produced by CCMA and Juno nominated production team Justin Kudding and Spencer Cheyne, the catchy guitar hooks and empowered vocals emphasize the witty lyrics that tease a partner about spending a little too much time on the golf course and not enough time at home.
Having recently finished as a Top 12 finalist in Project WILD, a country-focused artist development program run by Alberta Music and WILD 95.3 FM (Calgary), and after a busy summer touring, including 3 shows at the infamous Calgary Stampede Nashville North Stage, Alex continues to make her presence in Canadian Country Music undeniable.
