...'I am an Islander! That will never change, as long as I live, wherever I live...' (Islander)
Hello Folks! I'm Islander, singer, songwriter, guitarist. As a professional tenor, (Alexander Anderson-Hall) I have enjoyed more than 25 years travelling around the world performing operas, operettas, musicals, oratorios, concerts and recitals, but now I am 'turning the tide' and returning to my roots in folk music. In the spring of 2018 my debut folk ballads album 'Turning the Tide', also available on Spotify, was released and in the wake of its popularity I enjoyed the thrill of my first 'Islander UK Tour' covering a range of venues and folk clubs around Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Merseyside, Cheshire, Staffordshire and North Wales as well as tour dates in France in collaboration with fellow musician and singer James McOran-Campbell - coming together for 'Classi-Folk' - a brilliant mix of classical and folk favorites from all over the globe.
Exciting news and most recent update is that I am finally back in the recording studio working on a brand new album of my own material which includes some chilled, mellow ballads, some lively up-tempo numbers and an injection of lighthearted fun. The album is due to be released in Autumn 2022, followed by a solo tour of UK and France. Please keep listening and watching.
