ALEX WHORMS is a singer-songwriter and pianist based in Hamilton, Ontario. Proficiency in CLASSICAL, POP, ROCK, ACOUSTIC and MUSICAL THEATRE styles from a young age led Whorms to develop a highly personal, sonically rich brand of original ADULT CONTEMPORARY music.
Her 2017 Our Lives EP has climbed the charts of 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"], and others.
The inspiration for the EP, Whorms explains, came from everyday life. “There was an emotional spectacle going on behind the so-called 'normal' moments I experienced. I try to use music to express the intensity or delicacy of those feelings, to create songs that are not only journal entries but immersive stories."
With an upbeat and infectious piano pop sound, Alex has performed in over 30 cities across Ontario and New York City, for audiences of all ages - most recently as an opening act for Tom Cochrane at Festival of Friends 2018. She performs as a soloist and fronts her own band.
She is a 2018 recipient of FACTOR's Artist Development Grant and is currently recording her next release.
