Alex's new song "The Start" blends perfectly the sonic mix of folk and emotional feeling of longing. This combination feels refreshing but also like home.

'After You' is a return to roots for Kosenko, though this time he's brought the hard-rock flare of his other projects back along with him. It's everything he does best, and i can't wait to see where he goes from here.

Listening to the new single from Alex Kosenko ‘After You’ my immediate thoughts where this kid would not have been out of place at Woodstock. ‘After You’ is a fusion of genre’s with elements of the blues and rock combined. A slow tempo track that builds and carries sentimental lyrics. A heartfelt ballad with some great guitar sounds and blues harmonica to help stir the emotions. Still in his teenage years with many years of playing acoustic shows Alex has found a beautiful way to express through his music and this single is no different. Combining many styles of music that can be heard throughout the track. The skills of being a multi instrumentalist has bought about a single that urges the listener to follow a journey through his music and lyrics. A big future ahead if he keeps releasing music like this.
