US singer-songwriter, Alex G will make his long-awaited return down under for a series of headline shows this December. With the pandemic postponing his last planned visit in 2020, fans will be thrilled to welcome him back to Australia in 2023.

Alex G is the stage alias of Alex Giannascoli, a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist who built his reputation with intimate lo-fi pop that combines strong melodic sensibilities with a ragged, impulsive-sounding performance style. As a teenager, Giannascoli, a Pennsylvania native, wrote and recorded music in his bedroom. He released his home-recorded label debut, DSU, in 2014 via Orchid Tapes. The U.K. label Lucky Number mastered and released a couple of Alex G's earlier DIY albums, Trick and Rules, in the spring of 2015, and he signed with Domino Records for his DSU follow-up, Beach Music, issued in October that year.

Beach Music and its 2017 follow-up Rocket landed on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart, with 2019’s House of Sugar, saw him debut on Billboard’s Emerging Artists, Top Alternative Albums, and Independent Albums charts. House of Sugar was named one of the best albums of 2019 by GQ, Esquire, Pitchfork, The Guardian, Stereogum, and Noisey, among others. Post release The Fader has dubbed him “America’s greatest living songwriter.”

Alex G released his ninth studio album God Save the Animals in 2022 to praise from critics across the board, who hailed it as “a tour de force” (Rolling Stone) and “his most thrilling and playful record yet” (Vanity Fair).  He followed the album’s release with an entirely sold out headlining tour across North America; gave high profile national TV performances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon & The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and made his debut on NPR's Tiny Desk Concerts.

Alex G’s live presence is a sight to be seen. With a show that turns audiences into die-hard fans, these shows are not to be missed as Alex returns to Australia this December!
