Alfie Neale – Stepping Stones | New Music
Alfie Neale is a 20-year-old singer, songwriter produced by James Berkeley. Originally from Dorset and now based in Brighton, he unites a brave mix of styles in his music, from Amy Winehouse‘s influence to George Benson, his vocal technique allow him to blend indie rock, soul, jazz, and lo-fi hip-hop.
He has already released four tracks under his belt, and we hope much more will come. On September 27, he released his latest track titled “Stepping Stones”, which has already been supported by BBC Music Introducing Solent.
With his rough-around-the-edges vocal take, he investigates elements of soul, jazz and pop. It’s incredible how he goes from one style to another in less than one minute. He has so many vocal textures. The hook stays in mind and we are surprised by the ‘rap’ he delivers in the middle of the track. And the song gets even better with repeated play.
On the track, he deals with how love can be difficult when you want to grow up.
He embarks on his second national tour in October, supporting Cassia band, but he also announced some headline shows across the UK, and he’ll be performing in London, on November 20 at the Servants Jazz Quarter; tickets are available now.
