Alex Goettel

Corn Hill Arts Festival Entertainment

Alex Goettel is the singer/songwriter behind Rochester-based band, The Byways.  The Byways are a folk-rock band, often compared to Tom Petty or Wilco, but with elements of Americana, pop, and alternative rock woven into their sound.  Better said by City Newspaper’s Frank DeBlase, they are “indie rock, without too much preciousness or quirk.”
When not backed by his band, Alex performs his songs stripped down, using a loop pedal and vocal effects to fill out the sound. His solo show includes a decade’s worth of original songs, plus popular covers that any audience will enjoy. Alex is also currently recording a solo EP, set to be released in fall of 2022.
