Alexander Joseph has been juggling his two passions of music and sport for as long as he can remember. As a musician he cut his teeth performing on the open mic scene around the city of Bath, whilst touring the UK with a university formed covers band. His commitment to the world of sport stems from his time competing on the international tennis circuit and his more recent coaching roles across elite sport.
He's since gone on to release a selection of singles (now found on an EP called Anything Is Possible) in support of various sports development initiatives, which led to his appearance on Channel 4's 'The Superhumans Show' in the lead up to the 2016 Paralympic Games, where he performed his wheelchair basketball inspired anthem 'GB 365'. You may have also heard his wheelchair tennis inspired song 'A Racket In Hand' whilst watching the tennis at Wimbledon!
His uplifting songs about overcoming obstacles have been a consistent theme throughout his work and he remains committed to channelling important & heartfelt messages through his music. BBC Introducing have picked up on this and shown great support in the past, airing songs like 'You're Going To Win' & 'Not Defeated' and selecting 'Invincible' & 'Now or Never' as tracks of the week.
2022 kicked off with 'Firefly' (Alternate Version) - a reflective pop folk song about holding onto our light during the darker moments in life and features rhythmic acoustic guitar, shimmering electric guitars and a foot stomping beat! His latest release Summertime Compass (Acoustic Version) is one of the first songs he wrote during his university days over 15 years ago, and maintains the relaxed and playful vibe that was originally captured by the band he was part of at the time. The song delivers an optimistic message about the possibilities that lie ahead and arrives just in time for that summer BBQ or trip to the beach!
