Last year I produced vocals on a duet between Ximena Sarinana and Spanish artist Miguel Bose, appearing on Bose’s Papitwo album. I recently found out that the album was nominated for Album Of The Year, and that I was nominated for a Latin Grammy as a mixing engineer! The ceremony is on November 21, keep your fingers crossed and I’ll keep you posted! Check the Grammy page HERE.
AUGUST - I’ve set up my studio at a super-secret location in the Bay Area to begin work on my next solo album. I’m approaching the entire recording process of this album in a completely different way from any of my past efforts and I’m super excited to get into the lab with some new ideas, geek out and see what happens! Stay tuned for more info on the new album and how I plan to share the process with all of you!
SEPTEMBER to DECEMBER - Fingers crossed, I will have some limited edition copies of new music with me when I hit the road again this Fall with Vienna Teng for her album release tour, both as a supporting act and as the musical director of her trio (along with the wonderfully badass Jordan Hamlin)! We will be touring all over the US as well as in Europe, so please check the dates below and come hang out with us when we visit you…

- My current stint in LA was short, but I feel lucky to have met and produced EPs for some great West Coast artists during my time here, including Morgan Karr, Tyler Lyle, Ariana Hall, and Jay Chu. Please check them out when you can – they are all wonderful artists and human beings.
- The BELLOWS record (my rock/electronic collaboration with Paul Freeman) is now available on my BandCamp page and 100% of proceeds still go directly to relevant natural disaster relief efforts.
Back in November, Alex had the privilege of performing on Mountain Stage along with Mike Doughty, Charlie Mars, and Jeffrey Foucault. That show will be broadcasted to these stations starting this Friday, March 8.
If those stations or times don’t work for you, beginning the following week you can stream the show on the NPR Mountain Stage site or on your mobile device with the free NPR Music app. It will be archived for continued access, so listen and revisit at your leisure.
We had such a great time playing this show… Hope you enjoy!
Thank you for listening.
