Alex, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Growing up in a household surrounded by music, I was exposed to a variety of music styes and genres. My dad was somewhat of an audiophile at the time so we always had the latest super high-end sound system with a huge music library ranging from Bach to The Beatles to Jazz and early electronic music. My dad also showed me how to play the Spanish guitar which I would play for countless hours almost every day.

Eventually, I was good enough to start booking some gigs performing at local art spaces and coffee houses for tips. After a while people started coming up to me asking me to play for their private parties which pays a lot more. Pretty soon I developed a solid professional reputation and started to get referrals for other lucrative bookings as well."
