Hailing from Los Angeles, Alex Isley comes from a musically-rich and versatile family. Her maternal grandmother was an opera singer, and began classically-training Alex at age 12, while her father, Ernie, and his brothers, are collectively the R&B/Funk pioneers, The Isley Brothers. Alex has collaborated with an array of artists, from Terrace Martin to Moses Sumney to Kendrick Lamar; she sang vocals on Lamar’s 2016 Grammy-winning, “These Walls”. She’s also featured on PJ Morton’s ‘The Piano Album’ (on ‘How Deep Is Your Love’ as a duet with Morton). In November 2019, Alex and producer, Jack Dine, released a joint EP entitled ‘Wilton’. They followed with their singles, ‘Gone’, ‘Good & Plenty’ with Masego, “Mine”, and a later, a Good & Plenty Remix, with Lucky Daye. In 2020, Alex performed her own NPR Tiny Desk (Home Edition) and was featured on HBO’s ‘Insecure’ series.
In March 2022, Alex lent vocals to Lucky Daye’s latest album, Candydrip, as well as PJ Morton’s album, ‘Watch The Sun’, performing on “Still Believe”, alongside PJ and Jill Scott. Most recently, Alex released the highly-anticipated joint album with Jack, ‘Marigold’.
