Alexander Flock is a versatile guitarist specializing in solo acoustic guitar. As a solo performer he combines bass, melody, choral accompaniment and percussive techniques to create a sound so rich and full you may find it hard to believe all that sound is coming from a single instrument. His performances are high energy and traverse many styles. Traditional Travis pickin’ tunes, jazz standards from the days gone by, instrumental arrangements of Beatles’ songs and even his own impressive original works can all be expected at a performance.
Over the years Alex has received various awards and accolades for his playing, most recently taking home the “Rock the Mic” title with his original project Best Night Ever. This achievement has lead to a year long performance contract with the Hard Rock Casino Vancouver. He also placed 3rd at the 2012 Canadian Fingerstyle Guitar Competition, a prestigious competition judged by some of today’s top fingerstyle guitarists. In addition to his work as a solo performer Alex can be seen performing with groups such as The Ring of Fire (Johnny Cash tribute band), The Electric Monks and, as previously mentioned, Best Night Ever. A few performance highlights include providing entertainment for various high profile functions during the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games, performing at the 2013 Oktoberfest in Leavenworth, Washington and playing for the 2013 Lights of Hope w/ Malcolm Aiken and Amanda Wood. Whether playing an intimate solo show or plugging in and getting loud, Alex brings an intensity to each performance that you don’t want to miss!
