As a songwriter, Alex believes in creating intimate, emotionally authentic songs through a collaborative process called documentary songwriting. Documentary songs use people's spoken words as a starting point for a shared writing experience. By combining the principles of documentary songwriting with pop music theory, Alex strives to create music that is both easily accessible and deeply meaningful.
“I have no doubt that Alex is a master in the making at this documentary songwriting and production process. I think that you've gotta catch him while you still can because this is going to take off, truly. It’s so good for folks, and also productive in a way that is going to take music to the next level. There’s no limit for how far this can go, because there’s no limit for how far Alex can take this. So take advantage of this while you can, without a doubt.”
