There’s a photo of Roman Alexander at 7 years old on stage with a full-sized guitar in hand and a look in his smile saying “This is where I’m meant to be.” Now in his early 20s, Alexander has nearly two decades of performing.
The first songs he learned on guitar were "Ring of Fire" and "Folsom Prison Blues", thanks to a childhood love of Johnny Cash. His mother’s love of Elvis Presley was also influential and you can hear the clever references to the King in his songs. Alexander moved to Nashville to get his music heard. He posted performances and gained a strong following, which led to signing a publishing and development deal with Twelve6 Entertainment. He began working with Jerry Flowers, a top writer in Nashville and Keith Urban’s bandleader, on refining his songwriting and elevating his live show. The creative partnership led to Between You & Me, co-produced by Flowers and Jared Keim.
Alexander co-wrote four of five songs, along with Nashville heavyweights Dylan Altman, Jason Gantt, Scott Stepakoff and John Caldwell. The EP addresses the push and pull of love, from new romance on “Cocktail Conversations” to emotional entanglements on “Bad for Me” You’ll pick up on the understated qualities of lyrics and melodies. With Between You & Me, Roman Alexander has assembled a collection of songs that proves he’s paid his dues, honed his craft and is ready to stake his claim in country music.
