Alex Dunn set to rock the Treehouse stage

Seattle singer-songwriter Alex Dunn, backed by a band, will perform at the Treehouse Café at 8 p.m. Friday, April. 26.

Tickets, $15 per person, are on sale; admission is 21-and-older only.

Dunn carries on the storied tradition of making songs inspired by working in lonely places. Penned primarily in the few quiet moments on a fishing vessel in Alaska, his debut album “Scattered Poems” is full of — what else? — love songs.

“Each song might be its own story, but it always comes down to love,” Dunn said. “Love for my mother, for my grandmother, love for my family. Love for lovers, unrequited love, and love purely for this simple chance at existence.”

Dunn came to music via cello, flute and bass in school. He then embarked on a 10-year adventure in Alaska as a commercial salmon fisherman. He taught himself to play guitar as a way to keep music in his life while at sea.

“I started writing songs to cope with the long days traveling on the boat and sitting on anchor in remote areas of Southeast Alaska,” said Dunn.
