Stephen & Zooey
Stephen & Zooey
Borrowing the theme for its name from JD Salinger, Stephen & Zooey shows the split personality of a man who wrestles with conflicting emotions - often, using lyrics as the vehicle to explore whether a feeling is truly present or not. Do you know how you sometimes feel something that you're not sure is real? Just ask Stephen - an expert in the field of reverse paranoia, suspecting those around him to be plotting his happiness at all times. Stephen finds Zooey deeply rooted within, unable to surface unless provoked. And once provoked, Zooey takes the pen and scribbles - "writes" just didn't seem frantic enough - down each word of locomotion until all has been revealed. Some songs deal with the pain of self discovery - discovering two selves is incommunicable harder than discovering one - while others deal with the overflowing happiness of love for another, sometimes at a far distance both physically and emotionally. You never know what you're going to get from Zooey - that crazy egocentric monk - but you can bet your life it'll be something raw and terrible, ripping apart his own soul to show you the blood and oil on the inside. Relate to it or don't, but open your ears to a 360 degree soundscape that deviates from the compressed "DJ music" of the modern world and envelopes you in the authentic domain of a neurotic explorer, in love and out of love all at once. Zooey loves you and doesn't, depending on the day.

Alex Saad
Alex Saad began her music career in her hometown of Wilmington Delaware. She wrote her first original song at the age of 12, and from there it was a natural growth into live performance. With piano and vocals as her instruments, she soon became a regular at venues such as World Cafe Live at the Queen, The Kennett Square Inn, and featured often at writers events through Gable Music Ventures promotion. Alex attended Tatnall high school, and continued her education at Loyola Unviersity Maryland, where she took classes in piano performance, music composition, and music recording. She completed her degree of Physics with a Music Concentration in May 2013.

A mere three weeks after graduation, Alex packed up her car and made the drive to Nashville, Tennessee. In Music City she has truly developed as an artist, writing and co-writing over 40 new songs and performing over 75 live shows in just over a year. Nashville provided the perfect environment to develop who she was as an artist, and in Spring 2014 she started her new project called “Alexa”. Alexa embodies a powerful, independent female artist, with honest, unique songs that provide a new perspective on the human condition. One can relate to her original music while also appreciating the modern production influences. Alexa released her debut self-titled EP in July 2014, available now on iTunes and Spotify!

In the Summer of 2014, Alexa embarked on a 5 week summer tour for her new EP with two bands, Aberdeen Green and Jessica Cayne, and producer Pino Squillace. They played shows stretching all the way from New York City to Rosemary Beach, Florida. They performed for thousands at festivals such as The Ladybug Festival in Wilmington and The Georgia Cup in Duluth, and were featured at prestigious venues like Bowery Electric in New York City, World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, and The State Theater in Culpeper Virginia. Along the way Alexa was also able to promote her new record through several radio interviews (WCHE, WSTW, WJMA).

Alexa is eager to share her new music with her fans and see where this new project takes her. This new artist is definitely one to watch and listen for!
