      Born in Leicester, UK, Alex moved with his family to the US to settle in New York at the age of 12. He began playing the guitar shortly before his family made the move and continued throughout his teenage years. Alex is a former School of Rock student himself, having attended the Highwood School of Rock in Evanston, IL. According to Alex, his time at the School of Rock was the point in time when he knew that music was something that he wanted to do for the rest of his life. Alex moved to Nashville to attend Vanderbilt University for engineering and quickly realized that music was his true passion and what he was born to do. While attending Vandy, Alex formed the band Kid Freud with two musicians he met and they have quickly become a local favorite. Per reviews of Kid Freud, "frontman Alex Tomkins' goofy charm keeps all eyes on him, whether or not the music is flowing. The crowds fall silent under the rapture of Tomkins' earnest yet playful melody and the accompanying gently strummed guitar chords." Alex is also an amazing talent on the keys.
