Alex2e (actual name Alex Tuohey) is an alternative singer/songwriter from Western Massachusetts. More importantly, Alex2e is a storyteller. In 2012, while recovering from major surgery and desperate for reprieve, he picked up his sister's beat up guitar and started writing. Words became lyrics, days became months and bathroom video covers turned into gigs. Fast forward to today and his leaps can be measured in dog years.
Called "One of Boston's most sought after artists" by Berklee's Red Room, Alex has made a name for himself both in his home state and beyond. Averaging 130+ dates annually, he has traveled the country while supporting national acts such as Howie Day, Everclear's Art Alexakis, Shawn James, Tyler Hilton and Griffin House among others. His latest releases 'Lonely' and 'Your Day' have continued the touring momentum, helping his catalog collect over a half million streams since 2019 - including placements on Spotify's New Alternative and Discover Weekly playlists. "The past few years have been more than I could've hoped for. I really feel like I'm playing with house money," Tuohey says. "For a guy who never thought he'd play to anyone but his mom's bathroom mirror, it's been a dream to play for people. At a bar to a couple people or a packed venue - it's a dream."

“Inspirational yet catchy enough to be mainstream gold”
“If he had not seemingly arrived fully-formed on the scene, “Lonely” would appear to represent tremendous growth for Alex as both a songwriter and recording artist.”
“Alex2e tells the kind of stories that resonate long after the music stops”
“We're nothing but lifted after listening”
