Hailing from the seaside town of Mount Maunganui, and now based in Auckland, Alex Wildwood is the man behind a slew of tracks from New Zealand and Australia’s most promising new acts. As a life-long songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, with solid personal indie-projects such as Shakes and Beeches, Alex found production as a way to further songwriting for himself and the artists he has been collaborating with. “I feel like songwriting and production are so equally intertwined, they often make a creative feedback loop and bring more out of each other as the song is being written.”
In 2016 his work with Shakes received worldwide recognition, with single “Strange Tides” hitting #8 on Spotify’s Global Viral Chart, later that year Earth Tiger’s album, in which Alex produced, debuted at #1 in the NZ Hip Hop charts.
Having firmly caught the attention of New Zealand based management company, Page 1, Alex was added to the global roster and his repertoire was to be built from there.
The past few years have been busy, co-writing and producing stand out tracks with the likes of The Veronicas, Broods, Jessica Mauboy, NÏKA, Woods and Amila. Alex hasn’t had time to take a minute between trips to Sydney and Los Angeles, he was picked up by Sony ATV for a worldwide publishing deal.
In 2019 he was credited on Gold single ‘Shelter’ for local DJ duo Sachi as both a producer and co-writer. More recently he worked on the soundtrack for blockbuster movie “Yesterday”, where he recreated The Beatles most loved hits alongside Daniel Pemberton (Man from Uncle, Oceans 8, Molly’s Game) which has received 5-star reviews around the world.
Along with Alex’s belief in crafting strong songs, his fresh production is what gives his sound a uniqueness and real soul.
