All My Friends Are in Bar Bands
About This Show
Across over ten years of going to shows, I've met countless fascinating people that are joined together by the fact I love their music. This is a medium in which I look to find out the bigger picture, the extended story and the journey that brought them to where they are. No genre or topic is off limits. I'm David James Young - and all my friends are in bar bands.

Episode 93: My Friend Alex Lahey
For many music listeners, Alex Lahey arrived on their doorstep with no note and no explanation - just a twangy guitar and a brilliant pop song. For those that had been paying attention, though, the ascent of this underdog was a few years in the making . Having forged a name as one-seventh of Animeaux, Lahey was a seasoned performer and songwriter well before people thought they didn't like people like her. In the midst of a massive year - sell-out tours, festival appearances and the release of her debut album - Lahey breezed through her career in a fun, brisk chat. It starts with an atrocious surname pun (hi Thomo!) and ends with a sausage sizzle - as all great stories should.Alex Lahey's debut album, I Love You Like a Brother, is out now.
