Alex Western-King
is fast becoming one of the most talked about players on the London jazz scene. Having started music at a young age, Alex gained a place at the prestigious Wells Cathedral School at the age of 11 as a specialist musician on the Clarinet. Alex first discovered his love of jazz music at the age of 12 when hearing the school big band play, however it wasn’t until eight months before his music college auditions at the age of 16 that he decided to make the daring switch to study jazz Saxophone. The risk paid off and Alex gained a scholarship to the Guildhall School of Music and Drama from which he graduated with first class honours.

Alex has studied with some of the world’s leading jazz musicians including Jean Toussaint, Iain Ballamy, Stan Sulzmann, Gareth Lockrane and Alex Garnett, all of whom have made a lasting impact on his playing. Alex has had the honour of sharing the stage with some of the world's most renowned jazz musicians including Dame Cleo Laine, Alec Dankworth, Justin Stanton (Snarky Puppy), Julian Siegel, Gareth Lockrane and Alex Garnett.

Alex is a regular at the Ronnie Scott’s Late Late Show and has performed in world-renowned venues including The Royal Albert Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall, Cadogan Hall, Union Chapel, The Vortex, Royal Festival Hall, Etihad Stadium and many others. Alex is also regularly on tour with one of the country's leading swing bands, the award-winning Down for the Count.

In 2021 Alex signed with Ubuntu Records for his much anticipated debut album “SideSlip” which will be released this summer.
