I had the privilege of being interviewed for Kirk Wheeler’s new Podcast/Site Discover the Road. Here’s a snippet from Kirk’s intro:
The week I spoke to Alex, he was in the middle of producing local artists, mixing a band from Russia, building a website for a venture capitalist, scoring a short film, and helping someone build a social media app.
I am really excited to have Alex on the podcast for two reasons:
– He has a deep passion for music and helping artists craft their vision to create the most authentic expression possible.
– He has been at the heart of a seismic shift in the musical economy and having seen both sides, is trying to imagine what come next.
Spending most of my time on the quiet side of the glass, I’m not used to being the one interviewed – however, I enjoyed sharing some of my story with Kirk about the path I started versus the path I’m currently on. I’ve already received some great emails from others taking chances at new, creative paths and the obstacles that lie ahead. Just like Kirk, I believe we add real value to the world by sharing our experiences and strategies for creating the most impactful lives for ourselves, our families, and others.
Here’s the new video from one of my favorite bands, Echo Echo. I had a BLAST producing this album, and this song was one of the highlights. Distorted, space echo drums, uber fuzz guitar solo, an accordion duet, and a killer lead vocal?!! What more could you ask for?
Also, much of the footage from this video was shot at the famed Sound City Studios, and some of it was actually used in Dave Grohl’s documentary film about the studio.
