Mono Solo, the fourth album from Shane Alexander promises to be something special.
The new collection marks a quantum leap for the Los Angeles based solo artist, both in songwriting and in production. "I really wanted to stretch out this time around, " Alexander says, "there are even two instrumentals and a 55-second song. I went in with an 'anything goes' approach and I'm thrilled with the result. My goal has always been to write music that connects on a spiritual level the way classic writers like Neil Young, Paul Simon, and Bruce Springsteen do. I don't know that I'll get there, but I'm definitely getting closer." The album was produced by Billy Mohler, who co-produced Stargazer (2006) and The Sky Below (2008).
All of the songs on Mono Solo are filled with honesty and life experience. Inspired by stories Shane picked up while touring the U.S. and Europe, seeing the effect of the economic crisis on those around him, and the tragic death of a life-long friend, each track conveys a sense of reverence for life, love, and stability.
