About Alex Izenberg
The intimate chamber pop of singer/songwriter Alex Izenberg is colored by vintage Baroque and psychedelic pop as well as a flair for the romantic. He emerged with his full-length debut, Harlequin, in 2016.
Born and raised in the San Fernando Valley, Izenberg often turned to music to help manage fears and anxieties, and in 2012, he received an official diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia. He spent the next several years trying to take control of and channel those feelings, eventually recording his debut album with friends and co-producers Dash Lefrancis (Vas Defrans) and Ari Balouzian (Midnight Sister). Titled Harlequin, it arrived on the Weird World label in late 2016.
Weird World/Domino released the songwriter's second long-player, Caravan Château, in 2020. Recorded mostly in Los Angeles with Greg Hartunian and Derek Korat, Caravan Château also included tracks produced by Balouzian, Lefrancis, and Foxygen's Jonathan Rado. ~ Marcy Donelson
