Says Alexis, "It did not take my daddy long to realize he had a Country music phenom on his hands when I was just four years old. As he would spin the likes of Patsy Cline, Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn ,Crystal Gayle,and so many more, I would sing from my car seat and the vacum cleaner was my makeshift microphone."

“Dear Jim Richardson Jr., HardTwistMusic (songwriter) has sent you a message: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Subject: Hi Jim: There is a lot to like on your site. I'm a songwriter... and the supreme unspoken compliment from one songwriter to another is to hear a song and think, "Man I wish I had written that." You got two of those on my first four listens. I also love that you just write your bio honestly instead of pretending that someone else is writing it. I concur that you are one of the best songwriters I have heard. I love that every song on your site is lyric-centric... the lyrics are important AND you can hear and understand them. I liked everything I heard... and loved some of it. ”
