Folk singer & songwriter Alex Leggett just released an indignant new track titled Down To The River and the first time I heard it, it sent a shiver right down my spine - Jesse Read, Dropout Entertainment

3 Songs is a pleasant, gentle listen showcasing Alex’s talent as a folk singer/songwriter -

Great songwriting that captures the listener's attention from start to finish -

Alex Leggett is a natural talent – Royal Wood

Alex is a songwriter well beyond his years. His album has a warmth and clarity not heard often enough. Give it a listen, you’ll be happy you did – Noah Mintz (Lacquer Channel)

A sparsely-arranged but densely constructed collection of songs, with intense lyrics and some beautifully placed harmonies - well worth your time to give a good, long listen - Graydon James (The Young Novelists)

It’s a bare-bones emotional journey into what it means to be home, away from home, and in between. It’s sad. And so so good. Take a listen for yourself - Christo Graham

From the album Moon of the Day, Itty Bitty makes good use of atmospheric space. The tremolo guitar is a nice touch -

Strong vocals and delicate guitar work -

Leggett also brings a lot of passion to his songs, something usually essential for a good folk tune -

The five-track set of songs features the singer/songwriters’ strong vocal talents -

The uniquely refined soft toned vocals will garner the soothing attention of your ears rather quickly -

A talented performer - Bandwidth on CBC Radio 1
