In 2014, Fort Wayne native, Alexander Wren moved to Nashville in search of a challenge. He had been writing songs since his freshman year in high school and started feeling the pull to immerse himself in a creative culture. Not long after the move, he recorded his first Ep entitled The Good in Goodbye, which was released in 2016. Over the following year, Wren found himself listening to more and more classic artists like Randy Newman, George Jones, Willie Nelson, Tammy Wynette and Harry Nilsson, which began to greatly influence his songwriting. Over the last 12 months or so, Wren has written over 300 songs. Last April, he released his first single from a collection of songs and today his second release from this collection, “Strangers Again”, is out and available everywhere. We’re pleased to be a part of this release! Check out Episode #3 of Within Without and the Live Peptalk Sessions video featuring Alexander Wren with “Strangers Again”.
