The music for our new "9 Life Cat" cd is finished and came out great.
Zach Mauldin and Connor Siediel, of Sonic Ranch Studio did an amazing job capturing our sound and editing the tracks. 3 Time Grammy Winning Engineer Marco A. Ramirez did a fantastic job on the mixing and mastering.
We're more than happy with the results of the recording and mixing sessions, and the cd is now in the Artwork & Duplication Stage. We'll have it to you very soon.
In the mean time, the songs are already available for sale on our Reverbnation Page.
Please skip a drink and buy a song or two, or one of our cd's. Half the money from your purchase supports the great charity, the Fender Music Foundation, and it helps us keep making music.
Initial responses to the songs have been great. Click "Play All" at the top of our song list to enjoy the album. Your gonna like it. It rocks really hard!
Thanks for the support, Alexx

I appreciate you! Have an awesome weekend my friends! Alexx
Well, our shows went very well this weekend, Thursday at Soho Coctail Lounge and Friday at 6-Strings. The turn-outs were great and everyone stayed til the end of our set.
Thanks very much to everyone who showed up. We really appreciate that! Thanks also to the venues and to Jo Hobo Witness for playing with us on Thursday.
The 6-Strings show was twice the fun because I played with both of my bands, including my side-project, "Like a Hurricane," which is a Neil Young Tribute Band that we like to call "A Celebration of Neil Young's Electric Side." We play the best of Neil's harder rocking electric tunes, as the name implies.
I love Neil Young as a songwriter, and my personal sound has been compared to Neil so many times over the years, that I couldn't even begin to count. So the music comes very natural to us, , and thus, people like the music and the sound.
The bottom line is it is fun because I love Neil's songs. We are our own opening act for the Alexx shows which works really well. This project has Dave Richey on guitar, Richard Gerome on drums, and me on lead vocals and bass. I love to play bass too!
We will be announcing more shows soon. Thank for checking out my Reverbnation page. You should always click "Play All" above the song list and listen to the cd while you're here unless you're watching the videos. (More videos coming very soon.)
Thanks again for your support! PEACE! :)

Check out Dont Do the Crime by Alexx. Real life sh*t, thrown down hard and loud like a mother*ucker! Written by me when I was in the business. Recorded 5 miles from hell and the murder capitol of the world, Juarez Mexico. All instruments (except drums,) and all vocal tracks were performed by me personally, so you know it rocks like a mother*ucker! ;)
Well friends, like many musicians, I have a day job, or rather a business to support myself as I work hard to get our music off the ground.
My business, Flooring by Alex and Alex is also home to "The Dungeon," where we create and rehearse our music. We sell all types of floors, including wood, tile, laminate and carpet.
I am not new to the flooring business, but rather have done it most of my life.
My business philosophy is simple: In order to be a good business deal, BOTH PARTIES MUST BENEFIT!
With this in mind, I help you select great products, with the most value for your money, and if you choose to have us do the installation, I personally see that you are well taken care of by our crews, and we have an A+ Rating with the Better Business Bureau.
So please support our music, by purchasing your floors from us. I will personally make sure you and our business benefit from the deal, making it a win-win situation.

Well, yesterday wasn't so great. Bad news in the morning, electricity went out in The Dungeon, and on the whole block, forcing us to cancel reherasal, etc.
The good thing......that was yesterday. Today's a better day! Sun is shining bright in El Paso, and the future still looks quite bright!
I haven't had time, but now I'm finally getting out to book some more gigs. We should have some new dates, hopefully by next week. I'll keep you posted.
The music is going great. I've written quite a few new songs, and we're starting to rehearse them with the band. My band is liking the new songs, so I'm sure the public will too, because my bandmates have critical ears, and know good music.
We will likely begin recording the follow-up CD to Escaping the Dungeon in the fall. The plan for the spring and summer is to play, play and play some more, as we continue to seek out a record deal with a good label. That's always a longshot, but we have some good things going for us, so we may just get lucky and hit. Really if we can just get one song to take off in a big way the rest will follow.
Well that's about all for now, because I can't make long blog entries on this site. For all the scoop, go to my Alexx's Music Blog on my Official Website, www.alexxofficialmusic.com. There's about 7 months of blog entries dating back to the Escaping the Dungeon release last July.
Thanks for your interest and support of my music. I sincerely appreciate it, and appreciate all of you!
