Iconic Everclear frontman Art Alexakis announces solo Manchester gig

Art Alexakis, the charismatic frontman of the multi-platinum U/S. rock band Everclear, has announced his debut solo album, Sun Songs. The long-awaited solo record marks a new chapter in the legendary frontman’s career, as he explores sounds, styles and lyrical subjects outside the normal realm of Everclear. In support, Alexakis will embark on a solo tour, including a show at Manchester’s Night & Day Cafe on October 14th

While Art Alexakis has always been the driving force behind Everclear, his solo work finally offers him an opportunity to create music solely on his own, without any preconceived notion or collaborative influence as to what it should sound like. On his debut solo album Sun Songs, Alexakis shares, “For the most part, it’s an acoustic singer-songwriter type of album. It’s not about making another Everclear record; it’s about doing something that’s just me.”
