Alexa Ray Joel is a beautiful singer and pianist who is lucky enough to share the same name as me. True, it’s not her first name like it should be but I suppose I can forgive her that. Alright, enough of my ramblings, here’s some photos of Alexa Ray Joel. Scroll down to the bottom of the post to find the ALEXA RAY JOEL TOUR SCHEDULE. Also, her bio and reviews.
Alexa Joel was born on January 1st, 1986 which is a pretty strange birthday… her birthday is the same as that of the solar year! Joel is the daughter of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley (Billy Joel’s second wife). Word on the street is that Alexa Ray Joel’s middle name, Ray, came from the great Ray Charles. Okay, Okay here’s some more foxy pictures of Alexa Ray Joel:
Alexa Ray Joel started college at NYU (Where Plato himself went!), but dropped out after her freshman year to focus on song-writing and singing. Alexa has done gigs all over New York City and has begun touring the Northeast. She also has performed on the Hard Rock Cafe nationwide Tour. Pretty amazing for a girl born almost two years after I was. I wish I had her success at that age, but I suppose having Billy Joel as daddy doesn’t hurt a bit, right?
Obviously, Billy Joel greatly encouraged his daughter Alexa’s musical talent’s since she was very young. Her father would play Alexa Ray nursery rhymes on the piano. Man, that would be cool. Alexa Ray Joel has had extensive classical piano training and has developed a strong capability for writing songs. Her ear for music is unmatched.
Alexa had world class training from her father, Billy Joel, but currently does not have much use for writers and does most of her own work herself. She has the pedigree to be an extraordinary talent on the global stage and seems to be working hard at forging her own greatness. Alexa Ray Joel is impressive- she could have just sat back on her haunches and lived a glamorous life off of her parents coattails, but instead she has worked hard and is starting to make a name for herself. I respect her infinitely more than I do Paris Hilton or one of the other children of money and fame who end up with no personalities, addicted to drugs and with the maturity of third graders. Her talent has been described as a combination of “raw city energy and laid back Long Island style”.
I am listening to one of Alexa Ray Joel’s song’s right now, “Come Home to Me Do“. She has a very similar sound to Amy Winehouse. Joel’s lyrics aren’t quite as witty or catchy as Amy Winehouse’s yet though, but what can you expect from a young girl her age? She has a very mature voice though, almost like a middle age seductress. Other songs written and performed by Alexa Ray Joel include, “Blue Christmas“, “For All My Days“, “The Heart of Me” and “Sapphire Night“. If you search for her, you can find Alexa Ray Joel’s myspace and listen to all of those songs there. She truly isn’t half bad. Remember Ozzy Osbourne’s children and that fat little girl’s attempted punk rock band??? I almost puked. I wanted to kill those fat spoiled pigs. Alexa Ray Joel however is significantly better than either of them.
Alexa Ray Joel is an undeniable member of true American rock and roll royalty: her performance training occurred at the hands of a modern master and a mother of otherworldly grace. Alexa is a brilliant young woman whose birth was well documented by nearly every major press outlet. As a world-traveled toddler, she even made Gorbachev giggle! Now Alexa is working to create her own destiny. Her songs reveal a charismatic dreamer and musical communicator of rare vulnerability whose talent is imbued with a blend of raw city energy and the peaceful tranquility of the Long Island Sound. Thousands have already been enthralled by the surprising performances that leave little doubt that Alexa Ray Joel will be an integral part of an enduring American legacy. Her songs are composed of equal parts compassion, truth, charity, and humor. One listen assures anyone of the wit and wisdom of this unique young woman.
