Bio

I am a singer, songwriter, player, who has been playing, writing and recording for a spell. I lived in the Los Angeles area for a a big chunk of my musical experience. I currently reside in northern California. My goal is to connect with other artist, Singers, writers, bass, drums, guitar, ect...

If you have the ability to record and send files of a higher bit rate this would be beneficial.

I can work with

24bit 96,48,or 41.1 khz

If you only have the MP3 capability on your account that is cool too. But you better be playing your ass off if its just MP3.(LOL)Kidding.

I am easy going. I know we all have lives outside of our addiction here so no pressure(Well most of us:). By the way my name is Alex. By day I'm a Barber at night I am a musical lawnmower. Feel free to message me.

My Showcase Tracks

Like Bill posting this as his fave, it has to be mine too. From the music of Bill and the story line based on the 80's movie "Jekyll and Hyde Together Again" comes the fabulous tale of "8 Track Jones" . And the Grammy goes to Bill, Mark, Raul, Rob, and Catfish.

The fab four, Bill, Mark, Raul, and catfish strikes again. This time south of the border. A tale from the south, to way south, of two misguided youths seeking anything but where they come from. And they find it...
Select
A song about a simple man and his simple life who claims to be nothing more then what he already is. Backed by some amazing players we have Raul R., Mauro Clerici, George Schiessl, Ben Owen, Jimmy Trainor, and Catfishsmith

BKwilliamson (aka Bryan) pm'd me some lyrics and I almost said no, until I saw two words... "Hold On". That line just hooked me. Loved working on the song with Bryan, and am really happy with the outcome. And thanks to Bill, Raul, Mark, and Mike, it became more than just words and an acoustic guitar.

What can I say this is a ten course meal consumed in 3 minutes. The musicianship on this one far exceeds my pedigree but they were gracious enough to allow me to be a part of the ride. Elguapo, the Doctor(DocDaFunk), invited me onto this project. I was reluctant at first, because I am not really a rapper, but the music was so good I took a stab.
Select
Mike, Tracy, Bill, Mark, Raul, and myself set out on this journey. And it was I think my most creative experience on Kompoz.
Select
Holy Grail. Pink Floyd....Ill Say no more.

Have not done many adult contemporary tunes in my life but I was happy to work on this one. Great writing and music arrangement led me to work on this. it has almost a Billy Joel feel to the writing and music. Cant put my vocals in that category but non the less it has that feel. Also the cast on this one was great. Tony, Tracy, Raul(Amazing back up vocals), George, and Tim gave this song real true life.
Select
This is a really simple gospel acoustic tune that I had Mark(Mjac) accompanying me on. I wrote the song on a rainy afternoon.
