Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alex Bevan (born 1950) is a guitarist, singer, songwriter, poet, radio personality and musical producer living in North Madison, Ohio. He is married to Deirdre Bevan, and has a son named William Cody Bevan. Bevan began his musical career playing the French horn at Chambers Elementary School. In 1965, while at Shaw High School in East Cleveland, he acquired a six-string classical guitar. He played local night clubs and various coffeehouses in the Cleveland area such as "La Cave" and "Faragher's Back Room." His first position in a group was as a backup musician with Irish folk singers Gusty & Sean at Fagan's Beacon House in the Flats of Cleveland, Ohio. While a student at Akron University, Bevan was introduced to his first producer, Eric Stevens, who signed him to Big Tree Records. His first album, No Truth to Sell, was released with the single "Linda's Song," which got some airplay. Between 1971 and 1976, Bevan performed as an opening act for such headliners as the Earl Scruggs Review, Pure Prairie League, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Jerry Jeff Walker, Jimmy Buffett, Livingston Taylor, Billy Joel and others.show more
