Alex is a singer and multi-instrumentalist who has been surrounded by music his whole life. Owing his immersion to his father, who taught music for forty-one years at Serra High School in San Mateo, Alex started singing at a young age and dabbled with brass instruments (playing primarily Jazz trombone), harmonica, ukulele, bass and piano before eventually discovering the electric guitar at age 17. Songwriting and playing with a few bands throughout high school and college, he kept up his guitar practice while studying classical voice and music education at The Bob Cole Conservatory, California State University, Long Beach before joining the road crew for Cubensis - The Grateful Dead Music Experience upon graduating in 2012. Alex began to regularly sub in with the band on rhythm guitar and vocals in the spring of 2013 when he met Grahame Lesh and Friends (the nascent Midnight North) for whom he eventually auditioned and joined that December.
From 2014 to the end of 2019, Alex toured regularly with Midnight North, adding the piano and Hammond B3 to his arsenal, playing with Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Peter Rowan, and many others. In the fall of 2017, he began working on his debut solo record "The Subtle Exhibitionist" which was released in May of 2020. Like many musicians, Alex spent much of 2020 and 2021 off the road due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, taking the time to write, record, and perform many live streamed concerts. He looks forward to returning to the road in the summer and fall of 2021.
