Abraham Alexander

For singer-songwriter Abraham Alexander, taking on the shapes and sounds of the cities he travels to is what brings him balance and focus, and every intimate performance is an exchange of energy, information and love. “I love it because it always changes me,” he says. 

The son of Nigerian immigrants, Abraham was born in Greece and moved to Texas at age 11. Until an unfortunate injury sidelined his passion for playing, sports was at the forefront of Alexander’s mindset, but a gifted guitar and a chance encounter with musician Leon Bridges inspired him to pursue a different path. Today, Abraham has a debut album, Sea/Sons, to his name, and a mission to share his story with true authenticity.

Riding high in a Toyota 4Runner TRD Sport, Abraham tours through Park City, Utah, feeds his love for nature and photography in Wasatch Mountain State Park, and performs a beautiful rendition of his own “Eye Can See” for an intimate audience at O.P. Rockwell. “My philosophy is one foot in front of the other, and brick by brick. I just want to be the best me that I can be…and we’ll see what happens.”

Sounds of the Road showcases intimate musical performances and candid interviews with some of America’s best rising talent. Season 3 takes us deep into the musical hub of the south: Atlanta, Georgia. Ride along with Decatur’s own Hero the Band, rock ‘n’ roll sisters Rebecca and Megan Lovell of Larkin Poe, and singer-songwriter Amythyst Kiah as they explore the city in three equally unique and stylish Toyota vehicles.
