Alex Kosenko is a travelling artist from Brisbane, Australia and his music is driven from his love of travelling and performing.
Alex’s music can be described as a unique mix of Australian Folk and Blues, accompanied by his inventive electric sound. Alex’s one-man band performances include a thumping kick drum and tambourine, howling harmonica solos, bluesy acoustic-electric guitar and soul driven vocals. Alex’s dynamic live shows are high energy performances that include a blend of original tunes and crowd pleasing covers that leave audiences captivated and wanting more.
When Alex was 16 he released his debut EP ‘Keep On Keeping On’ (2016) which he then followed up with an album called ‘Time for Change’ (2017), which was released in his final year of high school.
In 2019 Alex toured along side Screaming Jets for a run of shows through far north Queensland and supported Choirboys in the same year. He has also supported acts such as Russel Morris, Matt Taylor, Spectrum and Wilbur Wilde to name a few.
Over the last 4 years Alex has been spreading his original blues sound all across Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. Performing in clubs, pubs, markets, venues and festivals including his most recently Airlie Beach Music Festival in November 2022 and 2023.
Alex has also released his brand new album in March 2022 entitled ‘Movin On’ and a new single ‘You Can’t Slow Me Down’. This has taken him to new heights and allowed him to make performing his full time occupation at just 23 years old.
Keep an eye on this outstanding new Artist. Do yourself a favour and have a listen. You won't be disappointed.

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.

LiAlex 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.
