Wearing many musical hats, Alex Somers is involved in a wide range of the music making process, from composer, producer, mixer, engineer, and arranger to album artwork creation. Alex conceives intimate music by himself or surrounded by friends, and he often sets music to picture. Alex found it instinctual to stop eating animals and has been vegan for more than a decade.
“It made sense somewhere inside of me to skip all the animal stuff entirely. More and more, when I look back, I think of turning vegan as a pretty important shift in my life. You can choose to include more kindness and goodness in your life." - Alex

The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation
is a really cool non-profit charity. Their only goal is to plant edible fruit trees all over the planet! Simple. Beautiful.
I recently got my paws on two 1/4 inch tape machines and learned how to make my own tape loops. I have been having a lot of fun experimenting with the loops and getting different sounds out of simple loops with the two machines playing at different speeds and overloading the machines in really pleasing ways. I have been using micro cassette machines in my music forever, but this is a first for me with 1/4 machines. It's really a thrill!
