Alex Jønsson is an award-winning Danish guitarist, composer and improviser, based in Copenhagen.
He has been greatly recognized for his Nordic and melancholic expression – both as a composer and a soloist - and has toured in most of Europe as well as in India.
Most people will know him from orchestras like I Think You’re Awesome, Mirja Klippel and Jakob Sørensen's ’Bagland’. Yet, in recent years, as a composer and a bandleader, Alex Jønsson has raised his profile as one of the most interesting jazz guitarists on the modern scene.
Since 2012, he has been nominated for a Danish Music Award Jazz no less than nine times!
Jønsson’s fourth album as a leader, ‘Heathland’, was released in February 2020.
