Singer/songwriter Alex Isley has music in her DNA. Her dad and uncles together make up the legendary group, The Isley Brothers. Her silky, sweet voice blends perfectly with her colorful melodies and infectious productions. But most commercial radio stations steer clear of her music and prefer to rotate more popular, familiar acts. As a result, Alex has had to rely on cable networks, television series and digital music services to promote her material.
