SAVAGE DAYS (Youtube Vide)

FRAGILE (Youtube Video)

  • Born in Havana Cuba, Alexander was inspired by early R&B legends of the '60s and '70s, Alexander grew up in a musical family, his Father was a well known working pianist, and his Brother is an accomplished guitarist.

    Alexander started his love affair with music when he wrote his first song at age 10 called "A little country town" he played in many school bands while honing his musical ear. A chance breakup where his then girl friend who left him for a Cocaine dealer who owned a Conga drum, led him to discover the Congas and along with his guitar playing his Musicality flourished.

    Alexander's first band experience was playing "the house of the rising son" and other long forgotten tunes, in a school band with his brother George on the stage at Rose Bay public school.

    Later when, he had a taste of the conga, there was no going back. From there he met many Sydney Muso's including Sunil De Silva and Keren Minshull., to mention a couple.

    Later he formed a band with Keren and her Brother Bobby, Not Picasso as the band was called, played many Sydney venues and TV appearances. Alexander and Keren wrote over 70 songs together, in this very fruitful time. He then went on to play percussion with a band called Lifetime, featuring Ivan Waters, Sammy Taylor, Jeremy Parke, Dougal Hallowes and again Keren Minshul, after Lifetime imploded he joined Steve Balbi's band Universe as a percussionist. It was during this period when Alexander realised that he had many feelings, thoughts and emotions that had to be put down on paper, and what better way than in songs, his songs, and so his Debut CD "the rains keep falling" was born. Which was quickly followed by his next CD "Savage Days".
