Hello and welcome to my Web site. Why not get yourself a cup of tea and stay a while – listen to some tunes, tap your toes and hum along.

That’s me in the picture on the right – Alex Hickey – a Nova Scotian singer-songwriter who writes catchy, down-to-earth folk and country songs about poisonings, love, bicycles, feminism, economics, cellphone service and many other things.

I’ve been taking a hiatus from live performance for most of the past 3 or 4 years, but I continue to write songs (always) and enjoy sharing them out in the world.

I’d be willing to bet that I have a song that will make you smile (My Knees are Pushing 40,
But My Heart’s Just 17
). Or laugh (Buy More Buddhas). Or well up with tears (Moonshine & Mischief).
Or all of the above (The Minnie Pearl).

Please, have a look around. Listen to some tunes, watch some video here on my site, or pop on over to my YouTube channel to hear many more songs, including some of my most recent, meet my friends or connect with me on Facebook and Twitter.

I look forward to hearing from you or seeing you soon!
