Arthur Paul Alexakis is an American musician best known as the singer, songwriter, and guitarist of the rock band Everclear.
For this edition of the Paltrocast, Darren spoke with some inspiring and very-entertaining from very different walks of life, Spinal Tap bassist Derek Smalls, Lacuna Coil frontman Cristina Scabbia, and Everclear founder Art Alexakis. All three have new albums and plenty of touring ahead.Points of discussion include touring, swimming, solo albums, Century Media Records, the future of the Summerland tour, and what Spinal Tap co-founders David St. Hubbins and Nigel Tufnel are currently up to.
Everclear's Art Alexakis and Kyle Meredith discuss his debut solo LP, Sun Songs, which finds the "Santa Monica" frontman focusing on an acoustic sound and playing every instrument himself. We hear how lead single "Hot Water Test" recounts his recent diagnosis with MS, and the stories behind the handful of politically charged songs throughout the record. Alexakis also says that after this solo tour, he'll turn his attention to a 2020 run with Everclear to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Songs For An American Movie as well as the release of his autobiography.
