Alex Veley is an American rock musician, soul keyboardist and singer known for using classic keyboards like the Hammond organ, Fender Rhodes electric piano, and Hohner Clavinet.


He was a founding member of Seattle-based neo-soul band Maktub in the 1990s with lead singer Reggie Watts and co-produced the band's debut album, 2000's Subtle Ways which won "Best R&B album" that year at the Northwest Music Awards. He later went on to tour and perform with other Seattle groups like Tuatara, The Minus 5, and record with solo artists like Arkansas Delta Blues guitarist CeDell Davis and singer-songwriter Dave Matthews, recording Hammond organ on Matthews' grammy-award-winning solo album, "Some Devil."

In 2003, he moved to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he currently records and performs with artists such as Nando Reis (as part of his band Os Infernais), Erasmo Carlos, and many others.

Alex released a jazz-funk solo album in 2003 entitled Maconha Baiana, recorded both in Rio de Janeiro and Seattle, Washington.
