CITY OF STONE ANNOUNCEMENT

For the past two years, Alex has been working on something. In January 2017, he wrote the first song of what would eventually become the followup to his album, "Into the Hinterland". Since writing that song, Alex's life has changed in a number of pretty substantial ways. He's had some great highs and some pretty intense lows. He's lived in three cities. He's lost some loved ones (furry and otherwise), but also, found a little contentment in my life. Through these changes, Alex continued writing and began recording a new album in April 2018. 

What originally started as a heavily jazz-influenced collection of songs, morphed into something quite different than anything Alex has ever done. Upon writing what would become the title track, "City of Stone", he realized that this album was moving in a new direction. This song starts with a foundation of fairly happy jazz chords, but with the addition of analog synths and layers of ambient soundscapes, it becomes a little murkier and more complex; A little more like life. The songs on this album vary between the light and the dark Between escapism and reality. Between love and loss. All the shades of life.

Alex has put countless hours into recording and producing this album and has never spent more time on a single project. He would like to thank Mike Dwyer, Ben Crookston, Kayleigh Slone, and especially Chris Plumhoff for their contributions and advice. Alex can't wait to finally share "City of Stone" with all of you.

Please join Alex on June 1st at The Robin Theatre in REO Town for the "City of Stone" album release. See the soon-to-be-posted event page for all the details. #CityofStone
