This Week in Alex Stern: Somber Acoustic Ska

It’s been a couple months since we last checked in with our loyal Boston song-smith Alex Stern. As promised, he’s been cranking out the tunes on the regular for the last 10 months. I truly can’t fathom the commitment and discipline it takes to consistently writer, record, and publish. Kudos to you, Alex.

This week’s song is a stripped down acoustic ska song reminiscent of Chris Murray’s style, but with Alex’s distinctive voice, complete with hand claps and melodica (or harmonica? I can never tell). Listen below¬†and¬†then head to bandcamp and support his work. Each tune is only $1. I suggest picking out 10 and calling it an album. You’ll be happy you did.
