Alex Dunn – Southern Star (2021)

Posted by Green on December 3, 2021as


Reformed commercial fisherman and singer-songwriter Alex Dunn stakes his claim as the latest in a long line of hard-worn men and women making Americana music in the Great Northwest. On his debut LP “Scattered Poems,” Dunn explores his reflections on the many lives he’s led, from his youth along the border of Colorado and Wyoming to the quiet moments aboard commercial fishing vessels in the remote waters of Southeast Alaska, where much of the album itself was written. Melodic sawdust and salt air, Scattered Poems breathes with a sense of place, yet is imminently accessible and speaks to the universal. Recorded in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, Washington, it is an elegant and timeless debut, graced by the talents of some of the Northwest’s finest roots musicians including Anna Tivel, Eli West, Sam Esecson and Birch Pereira.
