What inspired you to first start making music? And how did you come to be in your current incarnation? Or if you prefer, a brief bio about you.
I’m inspired by the POWER of music to bring emotional change. Music speaks to us at a spiritual level, therefore, using music, we can really impact peoples lives!
I came to the artist place I am today because I embraced ME and allowed that to flow into and through my music!

Do you prefer studio or performing live and why?
Live… that is where you get validation on all of the effort! The Live audience (virtual or in-person) is where you get to see the end user (fan) engage with your music.
Is there any funny-unique story you would like to share with us, always in relation to your music ‘career’?
Being an indie label/artist often involves a LOT of trial and error. I uploaded my VERY first record/single under another artist… Don’t ask how… as far as I can tell he gained 3 spins!
Which track of your own would you point out as the most unique and why?
In many ways I feel all my music has threads of uniqueness. I use lots of harmony and I have a unique lyrical style… that will start to show us as more music is release. BELIEVE ME… Alpha23’s BEST stuff is yet to be released.
Would you like to share with our readers your future plans?
MUSIC, MUSIC, MUSIC! Keep your ear drums swabbed and your eyeballs Visine’d. So much more to come!
