Alex has been songwriting on the regular since around 2019, and it’s been an exciting journey! Their poetic roots greatly inspire their lyricism, and they embrace that with pride, painting with words. Recently, they had one of their original songs showcased at QUEER DIGITAL INTIMACIES, a digital gallery put together by local trans arts group The Haven, which is believed to be the first of its kind as a digital trans-only multimedium art gallery. They’ve also done songwriting for other groups, such as ANDA Records, and their formal songwriting debut in musical theatre is coming this summer, as part of a project with Fabulist Theatre!
In 2021, they took on “June Jam Gauntlet,” releasing 30-second teasers of original songs multiple times a week throughout all of June. They’ve also brought their lyrics to collaborative spaces, such as this upcoming (as of yet unreleased) track created with Ambynt, their bandmate!
Additionally, Alex loves to mix other styles of writing with their music. Below is “Pretty (Colour and Key)”, a mix of dreamy instrumentals and introspective poetry about Alex’s experiences with gender.
As a bonus: one of Alex’s older pieces from the 2021 June Jam Gauntlet!
