Alex Blocker, the versatile artist-producer, songwriter, and violinist from Chicago, now based in Denver, always knows how to keep his listeners on the qui vive with his upcoming Alternative R&B single “A Rose From The North” out October 31st. One way to make Halloween perfectly chilly! “A Rose From The North” is a ballad and a change of pace from everything else on Blocker’s Meet Me by the Lake project. The light keys’ soft vocal melodies are given an ominous undertone with synthesizers and Blocker’s violin.

“A Rose From The North” keep listeners at all ears as Alex puts them on a roller coaster ride of emotions. The song and music video, directed by Tucker Horan and Alex Blocker, shows a touch of Alex’s authenticity and ingenious display, leaving his audience thrilled.

Alex Blocker breaks boundaries with his genre-fusing contemporary music style that combines R&B, Hip-Hop, and Jazz elements.
