Alex Walker is an independent jazz musician, a multi-talented saxophonist, pianist and vocalist.

His music has been played on TV, radio, and other media in over 15 countries around the world since the release of his debut album.

Alex started his musical career at age 3 while playing the piano and moved on to saxophone at 15, along the way he "dabbled" in trumpet, clarinet and flute. He realized that he could recognize many personalities from the saxophone, sweet and gentle to aggressive and bluesy. It can deepen your melancholy or lift you to a soothing plateau, which is indeed music of distinction.

Alex was taught early in life that dreams are made to be fulfilled, and at the tender age of 12, decided that he would be a recording artist one day. His early musical inspirations include Beethoven, Bach and David Foster, then graduated to David Sanborn, Michael Brecker, Phil Woods, Gerald Albright, Sonny Rollins and Cannonball Adderley.

His first release, an independently produced and self-titled album, Alex Walker, will leave an indelible stamp in the hearts of the listener. All original material combining intricate song structures with silky interpretations, this album takes aim at the heart of human existence with songs of love, loss, anticipation, fun and passion.

Alex has been playing with popular Toronto-based musicians, such as Eddie Bullen and Chris Smith, for many years. He has played at jazz festivals in Canada and abroad including the Grenada Spice Jazz Festival in the British West Indies and with well-known greats such as Liberty Silver. He has also played both the saxophone and the piano at the Uptown Jazz Festival in Toronto.

Alex is currently living and playing in Tokyo, Japan.
