    With multiple award-winning singles & over 10 albums to his name, Alexander O’Neal is the definition of a true successful artiste.

    During the 70’s Alexander put together his own band and by constant touring of the live circuit in the States, developed his obvious vocal talents. In 1978 he joined Flyte Tyme with future producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Flyte Tyme eventually became the backing band for Prince, although due to different creative opinions parted company two years later.

    The early eighties saw Alexander begin his solo career as a vocalist, making his first recordings in ’84 with Jam and Lewis. A local label called Tabu released the self-titled, debut solo album and a year later generated his first UK top 10 smash hit “Saturday Love” along with solid R&B classics such as “A Broken Heart Could Mend” and “If You Were Here Tonight”.

    In 1986 Alexander O’Neal achieved a co-production with Jam & Lewis credit on the Janet Jackson debut hit single “Control”.

    1987 saw the release of Alexander’s second album “Hearsay” and featured major club anthems “Fake” and “Criticise” – the album sold over 700,000 copies in the UK alone. This period saw Alexander embark on several sell-out UK tours including 6 nights at Wembley Arena.

    Alexander O’Neal’s popularity in the UK has been constantly reiterated with numerous sell-out tours (including Princes Trust Concert) and a BBC TV special. All his six albums have charted both in the UK and the USA – a considerable achievement! These six albums have led to Alexander clocking up over 162 weeks in the Guinness Book of Albums.

    Alexander’s 1991 album “All True Man” demonstrated an ever-increasing fan base and led to another gold album selling over 400,000 copies in Europe. Alexander O’Neal celebrated his worldwide success with a greatest hits collection in 1992, which created his second Platinum album in the UK. His collaboration with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis as producers ended with the Greatest Hits album.

    He has since recorded a new album entitled 5 Questions and continues to tour extensively throughout Europe and all other territories.
