Guitar Noize review:
Aleks Sever’s CD “Danger Girl” features her brilliant guitar playing, soulful songwriting and outstanding musicianship throughout. “Danger Girl” combines the best of Funk/Jazz and Rock and establishes Aleks Sever as a major talent in today’s modern instrumental music...
There aren’t many female funk guitarists around let alone someone of this calibre and I’m mentioning that Aleks is female because it’s a fact, she is, but it shouldn’t matter and it doesn’t. Aleks’ playing is exceptional, her phrasing is glorious and her tone sublime. From the opening track ‘Showtime‘ I knew I was in for a treat with it’s laid back funk groove and Aleks’ Robben Ford-esque guitar tones playing smooth Jazzy and Bluesy phrases... Danger Girl‘ had me hooked on first listen and I’ve gone back to it again and again and again, I love listening to funk and it has been a long time since I’ve found the perfect blend of Funk/Jazz/Blues and Rock, this album is definitely one of my favourite releases of 2012 so far so make sure you check out Aleks Sever’s website http://www.alekssever.com/ for more info and check out the video below to hear Alek’s playing some of the tracks from her album Danger Girl live.

Guitar International Interview
Rick: How did you end up with a guitar in your hands and was it an immediate “love at first bite” kind of relationship?
Aleks Sever: When I was very young I started playing piano, but I knew that I had to find something different. Piano wasn’t quite it. I got my first acoustic guitar from my parents when I was 12 years old. I would pick out chords and melodies to the songs I heard on the radio and I knew immediately that I loved the guitar. About 1 year later I came across some records from Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughn.
I remember thinking they play guitar like me, but I don’t sound anything like that. Being fascinated by the tone and feel, I finally discovered the electric, and it was so exciting to play with overdrive and express yourself with all kinds of different sounds. Full interview
