The very talented Alexis Strum is set to release her debut single Addicted on April 28th via M. Records/WEA.
At 25, Alexis has had an interesting musical history from singing in indie-rock cover bands to her love of writing poetry and landing numerous solo acoustic gigs across London. Having established a reputation as a singer and writer she was snapped up by Ministry, co-writing and providing lead vocals for The Thrillseekers - she also sang and co-wrote on Ed Cases widely acclaimed album Eds Guest List. Alexis is currently writing for some of the biggest names in pop.
Whilst ambitious and focussed on achieving great things in music, Alexis remains sassy, independent, engagingly good company with a sense of humour and a tale to tell about every part of her life - this is reflected in her music.
An intoxicating slice of electro-pop Addicted is the ideal showcase for Alexis talents as a vocalist, songwriter and co-producer. Her expressive vocals are the ideal compliment for the tracks sublime verses and instantly infectious chorus.
Alexis Strums debut album will be released later in 2003 and will feature songs written with Brian Higgins (Sugababes Round Round) and John-Jon Robinson (TLC, Babyface). Aside from Addicted other highlights of the album include the fiery hard-edged funk of Rodeo, the sharp grooves of Keep Up, the ethereal folk of Still and Coming On Strong, with its shimmering beats and powerful chorus. It all adds up to introduce Alexis Strum one of the most exciting new talents of the year.
The actress spoke about raising her 11 year old daughter Matilda in the wake of Heath Ledger's death eight years ago.
