Alex Coquin on SoundBetter

A skilled songwriter and composer who specialises in arrangements for guitar and voice.

Hi I'm Alex, I've been an active musician for over two decades with experience both onstage and in the studio. I have a strong tenor voice (I can hit an F5) and am also an accomplished guitarist. I'm able to play in a wide range of styles but particularly enjoy playing fusion, pop/rock and folk, jazzy stuffs and classic rock.

I consider myself versatile and able to communicate a wide range of feelings through my writing, bringing out exactly what you as the artist and client want to say through your songs. I have a deep love of music and look forward to sharing that with you - please get in touch to talk further !
