About Alex

Take one of ten children, add musical talent, an understanding of what encourages kids to participate and you've discovered iParenting Media & Parents' Choice award-winner - Alex Mahé!
For nearly three decades, this children's billingual entertainer's enthusiasm and musical talent has captivated family audiences throughout Canada.

Charismatic and quick to smile, since his own childhood, Alex's nine siblings allowed him to explore his passion for singing, song creation and storytelling.
Being Alberta’s first Early Childhood Development male grad, his teaching experience led him to perform live and later host and co-produce his own children's TV show entitled, "Alex Mahé 's Goodtime Train. Alex is a recipient of the prestigious MacEwan University 'Distinguished Alumni Award' for his significant contributions and dedication to young children.

His influences range from children's entertainers Burl Ives, Fred Penner to Raffi.
His all-French recording, 'MAÏS SOUFFLÉ' was nominated by the Prairie Music Awards and rose to No.5 in GalaxiePLUS' top 10 list for "Best French Kids' CD in Canada".

His fifth family CD,  'Wakin' Up The Sunshine' was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award. Its title is a by-product of his own pre-school aged children’s simple interpretations. While outdoors during inclement weather and still having a good time, when the clouds broke and the sun peeked through, they would exclaim, “Look dad, we’re Wakin' up the sunshine!”

Alex Mahé's bilingual song material has been included in elementary school curriculums and rotates regularly on satellite audio stations.
