Product Notes

The Story of Broken Billy Dipping his toes into alt-country and alternative pop, Broken Billy, a pseudonym for guitarist Ian Alexy's music, is a delicate departure from his debut disc Rootedness. While Alexy's expressive lyrics still envelope his unique compositions, Broken Billy jumps a little harder into first gear, tossing rock and roll around with bluegrass stomps and country licks. An equal part Ryan Adams and Neil Young, Broken Billy's self-titled album helps push Alexy out of the singer/songwriter pigeon-hole and into rock poet territory. Duluth, Minnesota's Reader Weekly compares Broken Billy to "taking a cross country trip through musical sounds and places." Having studied at both Berklee College of Music and Goddard College, where he received a degree in jazz composition, Alexy has made a career out of challenging himself and pushing his musical boundaries. His time spent recording and touring in jazz and funk groups, along with a brief stint as lead guitarist in his brother Teague's rock/folk band Medication and their high-profile roots/blues side project The Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank, have all lead to the musical amalgamation that is Broken Billy: a remarkable blend of alternative country pop, driven by original, introspective lyrics.
