Upon graduating college in 2009, Alexi went to work at an insurance company. But when he was spending most of his days at his cubicle writing lyrics for what would end up becoming the company song, he knew he was in the wrong place. And he realized that if he could write a love song about an insurance company, he could write about anything.
Called “blue-eyed soul for the 21st century,” Alexi is originally from the Boston area but now calls Philadelphia home. For his latest, most ambitious project, “Love Odyssey,” Alexi was inspired by a trip to his father’s homeland of Greece in 2018, and his subsequent wedding engagement to his longtime partner. A collection of love songs and with visuals that reflect Alexi’s Greek heritage, the project transports listeners to a world of endless, old school romanticism, with its groove-heavy R&B musical stylings and lyrics that reflect the joy of being in love. With album features from hip-hop legend Jadakiss and Grammy Award winner Chrisette Michele, and additional appearances by Amina Buddafly, T3 (Slum Village), and Natalie Stewart (Floetry), Alexi is poised to take the R&B world by storm and demonstrate that traditional, “two-steppable” love songs are not dead.
