Alex Dupree

  • Singer/Songwriter

Alex Dupree is a published poet and songwriter. He got his musical start in Austin, Texas before
moving to California to focus on poetry, studying and teaching at UC Irvine. Songwriting was
never far from his mind. Despite a deep love for country music, Dupreeโ€™s songs never quite settle into that category,
absorbing additional influences from the likes of Laurie Anderson, Arthur Russell, Bjork, and John Cale. His latest project, Thieves, was released by Keeled Scales in 2022. Produced by Michael Krassner (Califone, Simon Joyner, Boxhead Ensemble), Thieves features Max Knouse, Aaron Stern, Stephen Hodges (Tom Waits, Mavis Staples), Buck Meek (Big Thief), as well as long time collaborators Aisha Burns and Matt Matherne. The songs present a motley cast of characters who, in Dupreeโ€™s voice, combine to tell the story of a single self. Taken together, these wide-ranging stories feel deeply confessional, an idiosyncratic folklore of identity and rebirth.
