Way back in August, we introduced you to a new 23-year-old singer named Alex Winston,
and predicted she was going to be big very soon. We were right.
This Detroit-born, NYC-based musician hasn't even released her latest EP yet, but already she's generating some serious buzz both online for Knocks-produced singles like "Animal" and "Sister Wife," as well as her captivating live performances.
Her sound is hard to pinpoint- she has similar sensibilities to other rising stars like Ellie Goulding and Sky Ferreira, but with a soulful, Diana Ross-inspired edge (she is
from Detroit, after all). But then again, her unique voice is probably a good thing, as it sets this up-and-comer apart from the rest of the pop pack.
She's just released her video for her brand-new single, "Locomotive," and we've got your first listen here. Download it here, and catch Alex Winston while you still can.
