ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Alex's authorized autobiography:

OK, I admit it, I'm a late bloomer. The problem is that striving to be the world's oldest teenager stunted my growth in other areas. It has taken years for my musical talent to develop into what it is today ......but what it is today is as good as many of those famous singer/songwriters you've heard of.

It wasn't because I didn't get started early enough. I started playing in a folk band in High School...even made the year book. Then the coffee houses and college shows began to make me think I could make a career as a singer and musician. I had half of it right. I was a pretty good musician. Friends and family convinced me that I might starve to death if I tried to make it on my singing skills. My other passion, flying took over and I fed myself and family well for 30 years with that. I didn't even slow down with the music or the performing though. It really got going when my two daughters Eleanor and Bonnie inherited the best music genes from me and my wife Marti, an extraordinary singer in the classical world. I highly recommend raising your own family band. In honing my daughters' skills on stage, I polished mine also. My daughters have already surpassed me in name recognition around Texas playing with the likes of Slaid Cleaves and Susan Gibson, but I'm coming on strong, trying to keep up with them.

The final pieces came together about 5 years ago when all those quiet prods from my wife/vocal coach and the songwriting skills finally started taking hold. I'm working on Cd number 5 now. I've also recorded and produced one for my daughter Bonnie Picking up Pieces that has made the ballot for the 2005 Grammy Awards in eight categories. My humorous and serious songs about Texas are being played around the world on radio stations that are not bound to the Clear Channel. It is a good feeling to have others like your songs and buy your recordings. There are plenty more people out there and I just need a chance to perform for them. I think I'm qualified now and I'm definitely ready.

Absolutly Awsome...
From the moment I heard this CD I knew it would be in the CD player for a while. The only bad thing about it
is trying to keep your friends from taking it home when they leave!

godfrey stephens

good artist
nice album,good rockin songs,also thoughtful slower numbers.songs,voice,and instrumentation all great.
i have two other albums by alex,and will soon be picking up the other one on this site.
my favourite is an older album nobody home on the range which also has some very humourous songs included

Loraine Washburn

Wonderful Lyrics, Amazing Instrumentals...Love the vocals
I heard the song "Apache Wind" from this cd on a comp disc before I got this cd, first time I heard it I was really just stunned at how much I liked this song, I played it over and over, absolutely no surprise that it gets so much FM air play...When I got the cd it made my day, what a wonderful collection of well produced songs with awesome lyrics and amazing Instrumentals, This CD is a must have!!!!!

I bought this cd on a whim after hearing some samples on cd baby and have to say this album is a complete joy in every way. Exceptional songs, suberb singing all backed with brilliant musicianship. For me there is an added bonus and that is the production quality. Play this cd on a decent system and it really flies. Would I recommend this album ? Yes, but only if you want something special. I love it. Why have I only given it four stars? Five stars, I reserve only for Steve Young and Townes Van Zandt.
