Spirited Singer, Songwriter, and Violinist


Alex Fam is a spirited folk singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who holds her own among artist like Andrew Bird and Ingrid Michaelson. Alex's music reflects her spontaneity and openness on stage, incorporating violin accompaniment, audience participation, and uplifting lyrics.

Within just the past year, Alex has built a following in Boston, performing at venues such as The Burren, Aeronaut Somerville, and The Bebop. Alex released her debut record Come Close in January 2019, available on all music platforms.

Alex Fam’s debut album, Come Close, is a selection of songs about following what’s in our hearts, learning from our own wisdom, and finding strength in ourselves, each other, and nature. With a background as a classical and improvisational violinist, Fam weaves in bright pizzicato and warm string arrangements with clear vocals that lift and ground these uplifting and poignant songs. Come Close joyfully invites us to come close to what is true and what we may not have seen about ourselves.
