Multi talented singer/songwriter Alex Brenchley features in Songbook’s first UNDISCOVERED Series.

The campaign starts on the 4th January 2019, when we will be inviting fans to invest in and be part of the EP's promotional team.

'Wouldn't It Be Nice' will be an E.P. of 4 songs, each one a unique take on an original Beach Boys song. The idea started when film-maker Arthur Petri contacted Alex from The Netherlands and commissioned a cover of 'God Only Knows' to accompany an original Super 8mm short film about Petri's own love life, culminating in a romantic real life proposal on camera.


As a songwriter and performer Brenchley’s work has been used across television and in TV commercials for the likes if Samsung & Axe Deodorant and can be found widely on Youtube, Spotify and iTunes. Brenchley, has performed in many prestigious UK venues such as The Barbican, The V&A Museum and Battersea Arts Centre and he often work’s with HUGLEY popular Youtube musician, Tom Rosenthal.

 "Alex is one the finest songwriters around and I know this because I have written a number of songs with him, some of which have been listened to by millions of people around the world. He's a fantastic lyricist, songwriter and human" - ~Tom Rosenthal~


The EP

The 4 Beach Boys tracks Brenchley will be covering, in his 'quirky-English' style are:

The EP will feature accompanying video’s which all investors will receive before the EP is released. Alex wants to work with the fans who have invested > creating playlists on Spotify, promotion across twitter and Instagram and other social activities which will help Alex grow his audience worldwide. All this will be done via the invested fans MySongbook - giving them stats, news and updates on Alex. Songbook, will also put these tracks in the hands of a number of Music Supervisors in the UK and USA to place into TV, Film and Commercials.
