The album mixes bluesy rawness with soulful folk and roots rock. With the exception of "Elephant Tears", all the songs are original compositions by Maryol. Alex has most recently been performing around the Albuquerque/Santa Fe area as a lead guitarist for Albuquerque’s Cali Shaw band and returning from gigs in Colorado with Santa Fe’s Todd and the Fox. The new album produced by Maryol and Jono Manson was recorded at Manson’s Kitchen Sink Studios in Chupadero, New Mexico and Mastered by Brian Lucey (The Black Keys’ Brothers).
Alex has gained a warm reception from audiences throughout the southwest being recognized by New Mexico Magazine, The Santa Fe Reporter and Thirsty Ear Magazine while giving opening performances for national artists such as Cracker, Michael Franti and Spearhead, G. Love and Special Sauce, Bo Diddley and Etta James.
Six was recorded with a minimalist approach at Kitchen Sink studios. Maryol recorded basic tracks using only acoustic guitar, drums, and vocals then adding only what needed to be there. The album was recorded quickly; due to a lack of funds the completion was postponed until a successful Kickstarter campaign was finished.
