Isaac Alexander takes the stage tonight at South on Main as part of Sessions series

som isaacNext for the South on Main February Sessions, curated by Amy Garland, Isaac Alexander takes the stage!

The concert begins tonight (February 17) at 8:30 pm.

Amy Garland says, “The first person who comes to mind when I hear the word “artist” is Isaac Alexander. He’s a prolific songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, performer, graphic designer, and illustrator. And he is a great guy! I met what I lovingly refer to as the “White County crew” when I met my husband, Bart, many moons ago. He was playing with some young fellas (Big Silver) from Searcy. Led by Isaac, they were just starting to play in Little Rock, so I asked them to open for me at Juanitas. That was all she wrote.”

Isaac Alexander has been playing, writing, and recording in Little Rock since 1999 and has put out a total of twelve records under various band names—Big Silver, The Easys, Molten Lava, Greers Ferry to name a few. He’s played drums in the legendary Little Rock band, The Boondogs and has played and recorded with a number of local artists, including The Salty Dogs, Brother Andy and His Big Damn Mouth, Cosby, The Big Cats, Jonathan Wilkins, Jesse Aycock, Chris Micheals, and Jim Mize.

The last few years Alexander has been working on solo albums with his friends. He has so far released See Thru Me and Antivenin Suite and is working on a third record presently. See Thru Me was No. 6 on the Arkansas Times Music Poll’s best Arkansas albums list.
