Alex Turner was born in Southern California. He attended Pacific University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice. After graduation, Alex went on to work as a landscaper. He started doing stand up comedy around the age of 30, but didn’t really get serious about it until he went on tour with The Parlor Residents.
When he started working on their fifth album, Alex Turner discovered that he had a knack for writing and performing comedy. He wrote and performed on several songs as well as doing some voice over work for movies and commercials. He then decided that he wanted to do something different, so he enrolled in the U.K.’s esteemed Royal Academy of Dance. He did exceptionally well there, winning the best British Comedy Award as a finalist in the same competition that The X-Files’ Craig Heard did. The academy also gave Alex Turner a chance to develop a more rounded voice, which he showcased on his first Big Brother UK performance.
Alex spent the next few years performing with various English bands and gradually built up a strong following. In 2021, he created his own label, called Alex Turner and the Alex Turner Band. It wasn’t immediately successful, despite releasing a self-titled album. It was later signed by The Weeknd and his other four albums eventually reached the top of the U.K. charts. The last of these to reach number one was March’s It’s Time.
Since then Alex has established himself as a very successful English musician. He has released four full length albums and wrote and produced a number of other hit songs. A Alex Turner Biography would list a lot of these accomplishments, but it is probably best to mention The Day I Swapped My Dad for starters. A popular TV show featuring an Alex Turner as a parent, drawn alongside his son, initially featured the young musician as an executive producer and he subsequently used this platform to promote other artists such as Kanye West.
In late 2021, Alex Turner decided to leave The Day I Swapped My Dad and start work on an alternative rock band called Vitalikki. Vitalikki later became a successful Finnish pop/rock band and has since featured on numerous radio stations around the world. During this period, a curious element began to appear; a section of fans began to refer to Alex Turner as their favorite English guitarist. It was this trend, which led to a biography for Alex Turner, entitled Alex Turner: An English Guitar Legend. In this book, the singer describes his childhood and early years as a musician wanting to be a lead vocalist.
After playing in a string of English guitar bands, Alex became interested in working with established musicians, which led to his first experience as a music manager. From here Alex was able to establish himself as a principal songwriter in a band which he eventually quit and pursued as a freelance songwriter. After a spell in the freelance world, Alex decided he wanted to go into the music industry as a songwriter and music producer. However, he found it difficult due to language and culture barriers. He therefore set out to learn more about how English is used in the music industry.
