Modern fingerstyle harp-guitarist Alex Anderson was born into a musician family where his father, an accomplished classical and steel string guitarist, bought him his first classical guitar at an early age. Taking up drums and bass in his teens, Alex also got his first steel string acoustic guitar and felt immediately connected to the instrument. After discovering greats like Michael Hedges and Preston Reed, Alex took to the new genre of instrumental modern fingerstyle music of which they were pioneers.
Alex continued his musical education in recording and sound design studying Music Production and Technology at the HARTT School of Music. Combining his love for guitar, bass and drums in one instrument in 2013 he sold off all his electric and acoustic guitars to purchase his first harp guitar, a Dyer Style 8. Many musicians have fallen in love with the harp-guitar since greats like Stephen Bennett, Michael Hedges and Andy McKee brought an awareness to the masses- but few have dedicated all of their playing and composition to it. It became Alex's passion to take the instrument to uncharted territories and expand its limited repertoire.
Alex has signed endorsement deals with Dyer Harp Guitars, Ernie Ball, DiMarzio, Grace Designs, Sunburst Gear, MiniFlex, and Neunaber.
