William Alexander is a young folk singer with an old soul. Brought up and inspired by older songs William seeks to keep tradition alive as well as bring forth new stories in the form of his poetic, ballad-style songwriting. Born in Bourke, NSW Alexander spent his youth in the red dirt outback before heading to the bush outside Dubbo, NSW to live in a small community. William was no stranger to the songs of early Bob Dylan and was inspired from a very young age to play guitar and sing. After moving to Victoria when he was 13 William honed in on his songwriting and made his performance debut at 14. William left school aged 17 to move to Melbourne in an effort to make a career in the folk music scene. Since then William released his debut record in 2015 which he took on tour in September of that year. 2016 sees him living in the country again and working on a second album.
