I’ll be in Brooklyn tomorrow night putting the finishing touches on my upcoming release Jewels and Tinware. Can’t wait to release it into the world.
This fine gentleman inspired the title:
“It is from experiences such as mine that we get our education of life,” Twain wrote. “We string them into jewels or into tinware, as we may choose.”

It’s been a busy month for me musically, and now that the dust has settled I have some time to reflect and say thanks so much. I’m really blessed to get to play with such great musicians and for such wonderful audiences. Especially excited for my new project, Hot4Robot, which has been a ton of fun. Thanks to everyone who showed their support over the last month–really feeling the love. Now I’m very happy to spend a few quiet weeks with the family (and write some new tunes, of course).
Can’t wait to see you all at the upcoming shows: May 24 – Alex Radus Trio at Mayfair in Allentown & June 7 – Hot4Robot at One-11 Bar & Lounge in Clinton, NJ. Check the Calendar section for more details.
April 11 – Riegelsville Inn (AR Solo)
April 12 – Music for the Market (Hot4Robot)
April 18 – Steel Stacks (AR Solo)
April 26 – Private Party (AR Trio—sort of…)
May 1 – Tierney’s Tavern (AR Trio)
May 3 – Pearly Bakers (Hot4Robot & AR Trio)
Last year, my song It Ain’t Good from the album Love Me Like You Hate Me was featured as a centerpiece of the beautiful short film By Tomorrow (Dacian Wolf Productions). Last night By Tomorrow debuted at the Montclair Film Festival, and the Alex Radus Trio played the afterparty. Such an amazing audience–thanks so much to everyone who came and congrats to the cast and crew!

My good friend Dave Cahill and I have been planning to start a band for, well, about 10 years. We finally did it: Hot4Robot is born. We’re playing our second show ever at Pearly Bakers Alehouse this Saturday night! 10-11pm.
Hot4Robot also stars the seriously talented Evan Straley (bass) and Andy Janowiak (drums).
What does Hot4Robot sound like? Come Saturday and find out! And then tell us…seriously, we don’t know.

Looking forward to playing for you at the afterparty for By Tomorrow next Thursday (May 1). Here’s a little sneak peak at the new album Jewels & Tinware–a song called Someday.
If you’re not sure what I’m on about…Last year my song It Ain’t Good was featured in the short film By Tomorrow. The Montclair Film Fest picked up By Tomorrow and we’re playing the afterparty in Montclair on May 1. The screening is sold out, but you can still get on the list for the afterparty–check the Calendar section for details!
