Alex and MaryJustice at Angel's Island

Alex Duggan is not really "a new face in the crowd" of local songwriters. She took time out to go to the University of Alabama in Huntsville where she not only "got" a diploma but a husband, Matt, as well.  Most of you would know her as Alex Hendrix. When you meet Alex you will  know immediately that she is a "go-getter!"

When Alex was ready to start singing again, she asked a friend to recommend a young woman she could do shows with and that nice friend recommended MaryJustice Lucas, who most of you already know. Since both young women "write from the heart" they seemed to speak the same language and hit it off right from the start.

When I asked Alex for a short bio, she said, "I have a difficult time writing bios, because  everything about me is already in a song. I write fondly of where I grew up, and tensely of heartache and love lost. Some things are hidden in metaphors and prose. Others are so blunt that If you listen long enough, you'll know me as well as I know myself." She said her earliest memories are of her father explaining lyrics to her that were beyond her level of comprehension. His favorites were Simon and Garfunkel and John Denver. Alex says those memories contributed to shaping who she is today. Lyrics have held a key part in her life  ...  from the songs she writes, in her painting inspirations, and to her "let it be" wrist tattoo.

So come on out to Angel's Island Coffee, 7538 South Memorial Parkway, Huntsville, Alabama,  and hear these two young, talented performing songwriters serenade you with their originals and a variety of cover songs they enjoy singing. I think you'll enjoy this new collaboration!
