Alec Chambers, the virtuosic 20-year-old singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, could understand chord charts well before he could operate a motor vehicle. Today, Chambers brings us a pop smash with his latest single “Do You See Me” which premiered exclusively on Pop Matters. The new track explores his youthful vulnerability while also showcasing Chambers’ wisdom and songwriting capabilities that are well beyond his years. “Do You See Me” was co-written with Aaron Espe and also placed in the top 3 Pop Category in the John Lennon Song Contest in 2015.
Earlier this year, Chambers released his much-anticipated debut EP, which was produced by Robbie Guariglia (Oh Honey). Chambers’ first single & title track “Whole Again,” premiered on Just Jared Jr. The video for “Whole Again” was directed by Jonathan Hoeg and can be seen here.
Born in a small town in Connecticut, Chambers discovered his interest in music at an astonishingly young age. When he was just 12 years old, he used YouTube to teach himself guitar, and soon discovered his ability to play his favorite songs by ear. Now, he has become an impressive talent who writes his own music and lyrics.
For the past few years, Chambers has been working closely with producer and platinum-selling songwriter, Sarah Nagourney. He wrote each song on his EP alongside Nagourney, as well as Guariglia, Grammy award-winning Lee Groves (Black Eyed Peas) and Jon Siebels (Eve 6).
“I have worked with Alec a number of times in the studio,” shares Groves,”He is a total natural and a unique talent. I am always impressed with his musicality and ability to play different instruments and parts quickly and effortlessly.”
Chambers has been gaining visibility as a finalist in major international song contests such as the John Lennon Song Contest and the Coffee Music Project.
