ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
My name is Alex Cohen and ever since I can remember I have been completely fascinated with music and how it’s made. My journey started when I was 8 years old. I went to a concert consisting of 3 drummers playing together for an hour. The show had me captivated entirely and I later started taking drum lessons with one of the three drummers. Rhythm was my strong suit from a young age.
As I’ve been getting older I’ve noticed that the world around me takes a negative turn at times regardless of what I do to prevent it or how positive I remain. I also noticed that this pattern was consistent among people I cared about and began brainstorming on ways that I could use what I love to improve not only my own situation, but the common situation among at least the people I know directly, if not potentially a much larger group. It was at that point that I realized whenever I would sit down and write music as an outlet to decrease the stress I was experiencing, my attitude would entirely change as I would realize that I had taken something that was troubling me deeply and created something, rather than let the negativity I experienced consume me and then inspire me to destroy something or cause trouble. Whenever this would happen and I would use this outlet, I derived happiness from it that nothing could shatter. It would then not only change my attitude, but the situation at most times would turn itself around for the better with my attitude change. My music is about finding within yourself what it takes to be happy, because it is something we are all capable of. Although in this world, with all the predicaments we come to face, it’s not easy. But one thing that always helped me to push through and discover what I could do to help my situation and the common situation of those around me is to hear something or see something creative from someone else that expressed their struggle and seeing how it could easily compare emotionally to my own. We all experience times when we feel there is no hope what so ever for who we are and where we’re going but this is only because we allow ourselves to believe we are alone in this struggle and the negativity that is produced with that attitude will forever overcome who we are unless we allow ourselves to see the good that is in everything as opposed to the bad that is also in everything. We as human beings cannot control that there are things in life that will occur whether we expect them to or not that set us back, but it is merely a test to see how far we can persist to get to where we want to be. I wish to inspire people with my determination to be happy and successful to show them that if I (a regular person the same as anyone else) can find something that makes me happy enough to persist through any obstacle, that they can too. I wish to inspire as many people as possible with this attitude so as to inspire positive change where ever it is I will go and be heard. My ultimate goal is to use this positivity and will to create in troubled times as opposed to destroy to inspire positive change that can be recognized globally and quite literally eventually change the world for the better in a way people thought would always only be a dream. I have a passionate love for life and people in my life and my music is about finding it within yourself to persist through anything that may keep you from believing that you truly can be happy in this world as who you are in whatever situation you are in. The only thing keeping you from living the life you always dreamed you could live are the limitations you create for yourself in your own mind; they are only made real because you allow them to manifest themselves inside of you. Every person on planet Earth has the ability to completely turn around their situation and live the life they wish to live, I wish to inspire people with this belief so that it will ultimately become their reality as it is becoming mine.
