Toronto, singer-songwriter Alex Nunes, renowned for his ability to craft gentle folk music that touches the soul, is proud to announce the release of his new single, “Fear Of Being Erased.” This reflective and melancholy track delves into life’s impermanence, inviting listeners on a journey of contemplation and self-discovery.
Blending heartfelt storytelling with rich folk stylings, Alex captures emotions that linger in the hearts of listeners. He uses his unique voice and a variety of instruments to weave intricate harmonies. His compositions are not merely songs, but gateways to emotional landscapes, where listeners can explore themes of grief, transience, and the captivating beauty of life.
Inspired by the winter of 2017, “Fear of Being Erased” began to take shape in the basement of his childhood home in Ajax, ON. Immersed in the study of music production and audio engineering, Alex recorded the first versions of this piece, laying the foundation for an introspective musical journey. Collaboration has been critical to the song’s evolution. Producer Jonathan Sloan and horn player Bruce MacKinnon added their expertise, infusing the track with an ethereal and haunting quality. Alfio Anibalinni, a college professor and mix engineer, lent his skills to refine further the sonic tapestry.
“The passing of my brother, Dominic magnified the urgency behind the release of ‘Fear Of Being Erased,'” said Alex. “This personal tragedy intensified my connection to the themes of the fleeting yet beautiful nature of life.”
He goes on to say, “At its core, ‘Fear Of Being Erased’ serves as a poignant reminder to myself and, hopefully, to all who lend their ears, of the importance of contemplating our mortality so that we may find a deeper connection to what our lives truly mean to us.”
Alex’s musical journey is not just an artistic endeavour; it’s a form of therapy, a means of connecting with his own emotions, and a channel for communicating the ineffable. With “Fear Of Being Erased,” he aims to forge that connection with audiences, inviting them to contemplate their place in the universe and the beauty that can be found in life’s fleeting moments.
