Fast-emerging indie duo, Alexander Jean, featuring BC Jean and Mark Ballas, are creating the freshest, most honest, heartfelt music of their careers.
The duo, who first met in 2012 at a Los Angeles singer-songwriter showcase, released their debut EP titled “Head High,” which debuted at #1 on iTunes’ Singer/Songwriter chart this summer. Their power-pop ballad and debut single “Roses and Violets,” also hit #1 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart and #6 on the iTunes overall chart; reaching the Top 20 on Billboard’s Hot 100 “Bubbling Under” chart. Their single “Thief,” also hit #5 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart. Alexander Jean have recently completed their first 21 date U.S. tour, “Head High”, sponsored by Nicorette and Nicoderm.
Working together on vocal production and harmonization, BC and Mark share lead vocals; and Mark, who helms the musical production, draws on a unique array of instruments to create a rich sonic palette, including the nylon string flamenco guitar, steel string acoustic guitar, electric guitar, percussion, drums and piano. He creates the deep foundational grooves, employing everything from kick drums to Brazilian drums and tom-toms.
