Shapeshifting between genres, instruments, and roles, his work reflects a unique musical upbringing with diverse experiences.Alex started learning piano at age four. Raised on a steady diet of AC/DC and the Rolling Stones, he picked up guitar, bass, and drums. Double bass was next, which he learned to attend a high school arts program.
