Alex Winston – Velvet Elvis by AlexWinstonOfficial

Alex Winston made her internet breakthrough earlier this year with the infectiously great single, Sister Wife, which highlights the stress of a polygamous relationship. Winston definitely has a knack for choosing unique subject matter to croon about in her Motown baby voice as Velvet Elvis is a love song to a plush Elvis doll. Some people might be turned off or think Alex Winston is strange for the content of her songs but I think it is her most appealing attribute. The Indie female vocalist scene has a pretty good handle on music about love and heartache; so why not make things interesting and write about the type of relationships that are generally only seen on TLC programs? I’m thinking about sending Alex this list in hopes of inspiring a future song, if you take the time to glance at it share your favorite in the comments!

The single Velvet Elvis is the title track off Alex Winston’s EP that will be released on September 12th, her debut album is also in the works and set for a January 2012 release date.
