Alex Whorms

"Our Lives" EP available everywhere

BIOGRAPHY

Alex Whorms is a piano-pop artist based in Toronto, Ontario. Frequently compared to Sara Bareilles and Carole King, she writes upbeat, catchy tunes inspired by her life experiences as a young Canadian artist. She performs as a soloist and also fronts her own band.

“Alex’s organic approach to music…is hugely refreshing” – Amy King, Recording Engineer at Grant Avenue Studio

Whorms’ debut "Our Lives" EP was released in 2017, successfully charting on several community radio shows including 93.3 FM CFMU Top 20 [“Jones”, “People In Love”, “Naturally”], I Heart Hamilton Top 5 [“Jones”], 93.1 FM WRUW (Cleveland)  ["Jones"]. Since then, she has performed at over 100 concerts, festivals and events, including two stops in New York City and a career highlight as an opening act for Tom Cochrane at Hamilton's 2018 Festival of Friends.

Many of Whorms’ songs show off her classical background with soaring string arrangements and complex piano parts; others, like her most-streamed single, “Jones”, show a distinct indie rock influence.  So what ties it all together? Whorms remarks, “My introspective approach to storytelling and mezzo-soprano vocal styling are consistent across my body of work. And the subjects I write about – things like love, personal struggle, society, and the media – are resonant and relatable to many listeners.”

Whorms is currently recording her next release, scheduled for Spring 2019.

When she is not writing and recording pop music, Whorms, who holds a Grade 10 Piano Certificate [First Class Honours with Distinction] from the Royal Conservatory of Music, enjoys composing film soundtracks and teaching both piano and singing lessons in the Hamilton/Halton and Durham Region areas.
