Alex began writing his first songs in middle school. He enjoyed composing original material even while he was encouraged by his piano teachers to master classical repertoire. Gratified for his training with his mother, international concert pianist Arlene Portney, he was able to learn and enjoy works such as Beethoven inventions, Chopin etudes, Rachmaninoff preludes, Bach preludes and fugues, pieces by Debussy, Ravel, and more. On trombone, having studied with New York pro Don DuPont he picked up jazz bands and show-tunes. When living in Los Angeles, Alex found experienced music management which gave his passion for composing lyrical melodies, poetry, and prose new direction. With a great deal of creative energies, compositions, and tracks building, Alex seems ready to charge the hip hop scene and potentially transform the genre altogether.
