Effortlessly switching between piano, guitar and violin and five home-produced albums to his name, Scottish singer-songwriter Alex Cornish has rightly earned his place as our Artist of the Month.

Hailing from the seaside town of Dunbar, Cornish’s latest album ‘Hang on the World’ unfolds with soft vocals accompanied by graceful piano.

It’s easy-listening music you want to take with you to serve as the soundtrack to memorable moments. Which is part of the reason we’re proud to have Cornish’s sweet melodies playing in Caffè Nero store’s across the UK throughout July.

Old hand, new tricks

It’s an accolade that will be added to an already long list of achievements, with Cornish’s song ‘Don’t Hold me Back’ appearing on the TV show the Big C, while the track ‘I’m on the Right Side’ was used as the play out track to the film Solstice.

Cornish’s music has been heard on the BBC 2 playlist, repeat sessions for BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio 1.

On top of this, he’s received praise from critics labeling him “a voice to stand comparison to Thom Yorke” and previous albums having “Mercury Music Prize shortlist written all over it”.
