Alex Masters grew up in small-town Berryville, VA, where she started writing songs at age four. While being influenced by Faith Hill, Shania Twain, The Dixie Chicks and mainstream pop radio, she started singing at county fairs and talent shows at a very young age and discovered her passion for performing.
Masters then went on to graduate from Belmont University and landed an internship with superstar songwriter Brett James’ Cornman Music Publishing. Being surrounded by that caliber of songwriting, inspired Alex to continue on her path to pursue country music.
In February of 2011, Alex launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise support for her debut EP “Long Way Home.” After raising almost $11,000 she recorded and independently released her first record and began touring. She even won a fan-voted competition, which landed her a spot opening for Dave Barnes. Six months later (Jan. 2012), Masters revolutionized the independent music scene with a project called “12 in 12." Once a month over the course of the year, she recorded and released a free song to her subscribers, which introduced thousands of new fans to her music.
In July 2012, Alex was the cover girl for Her Life Magazine, which featured a 4-page spread on her and her music. In August 2012, Masters released her first official music video “Drought," which features stunning helicopter landscape views of the Palm Springs Desert.
Alex is currently writing with some of Music Row’s top writers (Liz Rose, Phil Barton, James Slater and super-star producer Nathan Chapman) and is quickly becoming one of Nashville’s rising stars.
