“I feel one hundred per cent European.” – Alex Uhlmann has left his mark across Europe; gold and platinum  records in Italy, music awards in the UK, and important recognitions for his restaurant in Berlin. He deejays  occasionally for AC Milan and is currently the musical director of “The Voice”. 

After having lived in London, Paris, Bologna, Berlin and Milan, he can confidently claim to have seen and  experienced quite a lot. Throughout his European journey, he has not only been able to develop his skills  further, but has also left notable footprints with his music. 

Born in Luxembourg, he initially started a career as a tennis player when he was young and competed in  several tournaments around the world. But Alex Uhlmann quickly turned out to be a jack-of-all-trades. At a  young age, he taught himself to sing and to play the piano as well as the guitar. Over time he exchanged the  tennis court for rehearsal rooms and concert halls. 

As a Britpop fan, Alex was attracted to the UK and therefore moved to London when he was 18 years old to  dive into music. He gained lots of experience by playing at the capital’s many music venues whenever he could. 

With the same attitude that let him succeed at tennis matches as a teenager, Alex also quickly became  successful with his music. 

Be it with the debut album “Tourist In Your Own Town” by his London-based indie rock band “Friday Night  Hero“, with whom he won an Indie Music Award for “Best UK Live Act”. Or as the lead singer of the Italian and  internationally renowned band “Planet Funk” whose album “The Great Shake” went certified gold. During the  course of three years, Alex played over 200 live concerts all over Europe with “Planet Funk”, including shows  such at the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Monza, at the Olympic Stadium in Rome and a headline tour through  Russia. 

After several band projects and collaborations (i.e. currently with DJ legend David Morales), Alex Uhlmann has  established himself further as a songwriter, singer, producer and DJ – and now also as a solo artist. 

In 2021 it is time for a new chapter: his first solo EP dropped in February, the subsequent album towards the end of the year, including – Coronavirus permitting – a European headline tour.
