Toronto-born bassist/singer/songwriter, Alex St. Kitts, has trekked around the world performing with Canadian and international acts alike, and now he is thrilled to delve into his own solo project as The Projektor. St. Kitts will share two EPs, which will come together as a full-length album in 2018. Have a listen to the lead single, Fake Castles, which is featured on the first EP – set for release on November 24th.
“I’m really excited about these upcoming EPs – it’s my first real step out of the shadows of being a side person and into becoming an artist,” says St. Kitts. “It’s an opportunity to tell the stories I want to tell, and reach out to people. If you start dancing along to these songs that’s awesome too!”
As a professional bassist, St. Kitts has had the opportunity to share the stage with the likes of k-os, Michelle Treacy, SATE, Tony Royster Jr. Jeremy Taggart (Our Lady Peace), Alyssa Reid, Adrian X (Drake), Digging Roots, JP Saxe, Slakah The Beatchild, Chloe Charles, and many more. He has performed at the American Music Awards with Pop-R&B artist, Francesco Yates, and alongside Ed Sheeran at the Much Music Video Awards.
Keep your ears open for The Projektor II and stay tuned for Part III in 2018!
What is the first thing that you notice about a potential love interest?
Usually energy. I love seeing how women take control of a room and make everyone gravitate towards them.
What is your ideal first date/ what’s the best date you’ve ever been on?
My ideal first date is something pretty low key/low pressure like coffee or lunch. I want to actually get to know the person before I decide if I want to keep dating them. The best date I’ve ever been on was just a walk through a forest up North. There was a beautiful rain storm beforehand so we ended up taking off our shoes and splashing through puddles like a couple of 6 year olds, grinning and laughing the whole time.
What’s your instant deal breaker?
If she hates dogs, then it’s probably not gonna go any further than that.
What is the best piece of romance advice you have ever received?
The tried, tested and true “Be Yourself”. It’s hard to be someone else forever, you should be with someone who loves you for you.
How do you keep the romance alive in your relationship?
Always being interested in what my partner is doing, and she does a lot, but I try my best to keep up. We like to keep busy too, so when we come together we really enjoy each other’s company.
