Alex Porat

Toronto singer-songwriter Alex Porat is a magnetic force. With some of the freshest sounds of the moment, Alex is an alt-pop artist with infectious and playful melodies, combined with unique, dreamy vocals. Born in Malaysia with a Chinese-Polish background, the 25 year old singer-songwriter has had stints in LA, New York, Las Vegas, Vancouver, and Calgary, before finally settling in Toronto in 2012. The absence of diverse representation among the internationally successful charting artists she admired growing up is something she wants to change for the future. Alex is excited and proud to be a part of the growing representation of Asian artists making their mark in the mainstream western music industry – a continuing conversation about the importance of representation, and one she feels is more important now than ever.
