It's day 6 and I am honestly over the moon.
Yesterday I gave a shoutout to all the wonderful readers who keep sharing this project,
but today I want to say a massive thank you to the artists involved.
This wouldn't work without all the talented people who recorded a video and have been such a pleasure to work with.
I love this!
What is #HITSBC16?
HITSBC16 stands for house in the sand's Birthday Countdown 2016.
Throughout the entire month of February, we will be celebrating this website's fourth birthday.
One artist/band a day is going to wish us a happy birthday and then perform a song exclusively for this sweet occasion.
Who is performing today?
He is musician and producer originally from Ipswich, now based in beautiful London, England.
His sound is influenced by other Brits such as Tom Odell and Ed Sheeran, yet he also gets inspiration from acts from the other side of the pond, Bruno Mars for example.So you could genrefy him as a pop singer/songwriter.
Alex' sound is one of the most refreshing sounds in the pop world right now. His producer skills are on point and so it's no wonder he's got quite a few projects going on. En Masse is his most recent band project, he'll tell you more about it in the video.
What is special about this video?
It's incredibly honest and heartfelt. And I guess there's nothing greater about music than that; as a listener you want something you can relate to and something you know the artist knows about. And ladies and gents, Alex delivers just that.
So here we go, this is Alex Stockley performing his song "Watercolour".
Where can we find Alex Stockley online?

Who do we need to thank?
The ever so wonderful Alex himself. We've been working together for quite a long time and to get him involved with this project is just fabulous.
Alex, I'm so happy you joined our birthday party! Can't wait to see what you've got coming up!
