Who Is He?
The life of Alexander Joseph continues to mix his two passions of music & sport in an inspiring way. From humble beginnings, Joseph cut his teeth as a musician on the open mic scene in Bath, UK - frequently performing at Oxjam Music Festival whilst also touring the country with a university formed covers band.
Joseph’s first release was an EP called ‘St. David’ in 2012, a project recorded and co-produced with friend Terence Ryan in a small flat above a John Lewis department store. There has always been a keen charity focus when it comes to Joseph’s releases & several of his songs have helped raised awareness & funds for organisations such as The International Tennis Federation, Sports Traider, The PiXL Club & The Elena Baltacha Foundation.
In 2016, Alexander Joseph appeared on Channel 4’s ‘Superhumans Show’ as part of their build-up to the Paralympic Games, where he performed his wheelchair basketball inspired anthem ‘GB 365’. He's also written two singles inspired by tennis - which you may have heard played out on Henman Hill / Murray Mound at the world famous Wimbledon tennis ground!
Alexander’s commitment to the world of sport originates from his time competing on the international tennis circuit. More recently, he has been balancing his time as a fitness coach across several Paralympic sports. Never one to rest on his laurels, Joseph is now embarking on a new adventure - writing material alongside a busy family life - all amongst his continuing role within British wheelchair tennis.
2020 has seen Alexander release ‘Not Defeated’, a single about overcoming adversity & the importance of persevering through challenging times. On 4th September he also released his long awaited EP 'Broken But Beautiful' which reflects on his experiences of fatherhood, self-doubt, faith, friendship, the loss of a loved one and the need for relentless determination when pursuing our aspirations - further evidence that Joseph remains committed to channelling important & heartfelt messages through his music.
