Introducing: Alex Aiono

What’s your favourite song at the moment? Chances are that Alex Aiono has covered it, making you love it even more. Featured in Our Favourite Pillowtalk Covers and Our Top 5 One Direction Covers of 2015, we think it’s time to finally introduce him.

Based in Santa Monica, California, Alex has been uploading both covers and original songs to his YouTube channel for three years, quickly building up a fanbase of thousands. Not only have his vocals only gotten better with time, but he also plays multiple instruments: the guitar, piano, and drums to name a few. At only 20 years old, he’s released an album, Alexmas, co-written a song with John Legend, and has toured with bands such as The Wanted and R5!

Still don’t get the hype?

Known for his distinctive, velvety voice, he puts his own spin on our favourite songs by stripping and slowing them down to showcase his vocal range and his skill on various instruments. The mashups are like a good smoothie: blended perfectly, making them just as good as the other uploads on his channel. 

In addition to his YouTube channel, you can find him on Twitter and Instagram.
