Your Man Alex Smith is a Brisbane-based singer-songwriter.


Alex writes songs of love, the desire to follow your dreams and the difficulties of growing up in today's world.

With a new single, 'Align', to promote, Your Man Alex Smith launches the song (a bluesy country ballad) at The Milk Factory this month.

Before he takes to the stage, he lists 5 songs that will turn any music lover into a lover of country music.

1. ‘You’re The One That I Want’

Grease is all '50s music! There’s no country. This one’s a little country, but they even make fun of it in the dance.

2. ‘Man I Feel Like A Woman’ - Shania Twain

This is just a fun '90s power anthem about owning your femininity. Though the rest of ‘Come On Over’ is really good too.


3. ‘Desperado’ - The Eagles

The cowboy analogy is just a surface-level reading. It’s really about a rockstar losing himself in his art, so of course the music would reflect the narrative. It has piano.

4. ‘Before He Cheats’ - Carrie Underwood

This is the ultimate revenge power jam. Maybe I like country?

5. ‘Country Road’ - John Denver

What a chorus! My heart swells with pride for a country I’ve never even been to! Take me away, I’m done.

Your Man Alex Smith plays The Milk Factory (Brisbane) 16 March.
