RCA’s new soul singer Alex Boyd is set to garner a ton of new following after joining Chrisette Michele on tour. Boyd paid his dues in L.A.’s music scene, hustling and learning the record business, and now he is ready for national spotlight. The singer-songwriter is looking to build a fan base on the east coast as the tour heads to New York City, Baltimore, Washington D.C. among other cities.

Boyd’s musical style is pulled from his creative influences in urban music. “All our music, Johnny Mathis and The Beatles, comes from soul and jazz music. I really began to get into urban music when I was in the arts school in Washington D.C.; I got into Musiq and D’angelo,” said Boyd.
While touring, Boyd will continue to put the finishing touches on his RCA debut album ‘Commit Me.’ The project is expected to feature guest including Common on “Between The Lines.”
The tour will kickoff on Thursday November 15th, 2012 in New York City at SOB’s.
