   "I call artists like Alex “bridges” as he seamlessly combines some groovy hip hop with some
                         country-influenced alternative pop. He’s one to watch."
                - Kevin McGowan, Ottawa Citizen Capital Revue

   
"There aren’t a whole lot of rappers setting flames to their acoustic guitars whilst playing the harmonica,
                                                                             you know?" - Chelsea Collins, Envy Magazine

  
       "I like this. This singer/poet/MC/rapper makes a palatable smoothie out of indie rock, blues, electronic, folk and reggae."  
                                                                               - Alan CrossAlanCross.ca

 "Hip Hop Hippie" was selected as one of the Top 20 songs of 2014 from the Ottawa region by Peter Simpson of the Ottawa Citizen.

          "Alex is a rapper, MC, poet. Whatever you want to call it. The best part about that though, is that he is also a musician. Meaning that not only will you get something thought provoking and moving with his music, but you also get great songwriting as well. It's nice to know that when Alex Silas comes out with something new, that I can get excited about both of those crafts. " 
                                                                                   - Doug Ralph, Music Director CKDJ 107.9 FM
Alex Silas & The Subterraneans are an alternative hip-hop group based out of Ottawa, Ontario.  Since transitioning from a solo career to having a full fledged band in early 2014, Alex Silas has drawn upon such varied inspiration as the artistic culture of the 1950's beat generation, classic songwriters of the 60's and 70's, and contemporary rap to create a unique brand of emotional and honest hip-hop. Renowned music critic Alan Cross has described him as an artist who "makes a palatable smoothie out of indie rock, blues, electronic, folk and reggae".

Exploring the possibilities of hip-hop with live instrumentation in the form of a guitarist, drummer, DJ, and rapper, Alex Silas & The Subterraneans released their critically lauded album Roots  in the summer of 2014. One of the album's singles, "Hip Hop Hippie", was named as one of the Top 20 Songs of the Ottawa Region for 2014 by the Ottawa Citizen newspaper.

Currently, the group is in the studio recording their follow up album titled Tunnels, slated for release early in the summer of 2016. The first single from the upcoming album will be out in the spring. In the meantime, the band will be touring in anticipation of the new record.
