Alex McAteer is an Irish singer who has professionally worked in music and theatre since the age of 16. Growing up, he often performed at local functions and community events, until moving to London at the age of 18.
Since then, he has worked in recording studios as a writer, and consistently performed both in the UK and internationally, as a solo act.
Alex prides his performances on having an eclectic mix of genres and styles, ranging from current hits, to the timeless classics.The fluidity of his sets are joined together by the stripped back acoustic nature of one voice, one guitar. Depending on the venue and preferable styling of the client, Alex likes to create atmospheres that range from intimate and calm to a 3am pub lock-in!
Sets and rates vary based off the demand of the client, however typical sets consist of 60 minute sets, with 15 minute breaks after each one.

Alex recently performed for a private corporate event, I had in Belfast. Having heard him perform at various events in and around Northern Ireland, I asked him to provide me with a set that would be classy and relaxed, whilst the company party mingled at an event that followed a long day of conferences. After his first set (which was astoundingly beautiful and exactly what I wanted) he told me, he had noticed that a few of the attendees had began to dance, but were clearly embarrassed, as they were the only ones, so they sat down again. He wondered if I wanted to make any amendments to his second set to create a more casual, party atmosphere. At this point in the evening, I could tell that my event was going to end earlier than expected, as everyone was getting tired. So, I told him that I trusted his judgement, and to do whatever he wanted, but ultimately I wanted to even to keep going. Flash forward thirty minutes and everyone was up dancing, and having a laugh.We seriously had the most wonderful time.
Alex is beyond the typical talent. He has the most natural charisma and charm without 'over-doing' it. Calm, professional, patient, poised, and genuine. I immediately wanted to book him for our next event, however he has informed me that he is moving to London. I wish this boy the biggest success.
