Alex started playing music at age 6 beginning on the violin before switching to low brass (baritone horn, Trombone) at age 10 and finally settling on the bass in 2005. His play style is most heavily influenced by Mike Gordon of Phish, and Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead, but his musical influences include everything from classical and jazz to hip hop and even a little a bluegrass and country. Alex is also the bassist for Matt McNulty and Friends based out of Norwalk, CT and frequently sits in with Hubinger St. and CK3 from the Shelton, CT area. He is also involved with Creamery Station out of Bethany, CT
