My Name is Alex Russo, I am 25 years old and I live in Raleigh NC.I have been playing the guitar and bass for close to 17 years and the piano for about 6 years. About 7 years ago I started writing full pieces by myself, writing the guitar, bass, piano and drum parts and arranging them.I grew up listening to a very wide range of music, from soul/r&b to rock, jazz, hip hop, samba and metal. So I can do all kinds of genres from metal to jazz to hiphop or ambient pieces. I have a small at home studio where i can comfortably do all my recording. I use a MPC and turntable for writing a lot of my hip hop oriented stuff and have gotten quite good at chopping samples. I still very much love the old style of hiphop but can also be very flexible with what the client wants.
