Don’t let her contagious energy or easy-going charm fool you: ready-to-explode singers rarely come equipped with résumé’s as tight as Alexa Goddard’s. At 14 she was travelling across Europe recording early demos; by 18 she’d toured the United States, performing to thousands each night. By 22 she was one of the ten most subscribed musicians in the history of YouTube in the UK with over 40 million views under her belt who scored a Top 20 single on her own independent label and now, still only 24 but possessing a resume that bursts with evidence of talent, determination and an uncommon pop flair, Alexa Goddard is perfectly placed to become a household name.
No wonder there’s a twinkle in her eye as she prepares to take the world by storm. And while her backstory is persuasive, in 2014 Alexa’s music speaks for itself. She’s already recorded with bluechip producers such as Stargate (Rihanna, Beyoncé, Ne-Yo, Shakira), lending her sophisticated but uncompromisingly pop-influenced yet soulful vocals to songs penned by the likes of Ester Dean (Katy Perry, Christina Aguilera, Mary J Blige) and even Chris Brown. She’s already proved herself to some of the music industry’s biggest names, and now it’s time for the rest of the planet to meet this exciting new star.
