2020 Album Release

This latest release, In The Meantime, is both a rebirth and a return. In 2003, Alex released the gutsy bluesy album
Make Everything Alright, and he decided to revisit that unvarnished approach on his latest, focusing on electric
guitar workouts, and, most importantly, heartfelt songcraft. To this end, he enlisted Make Everything Alright’s
engineer Tim Stroh (Dwight Yoakam, Robbie Robertson, David Jacobs-Strain), and recorded at Tim’s new studio in
Leadville, Colorado, Mad House Recorders.

In The Meantime is boldly reflective and vulnerable. The 11-song collection spans swampy Delta blues, smoldering
slow-burn soul, classic rock riff-rock, and moody jazz-tinged balladry. The spiritually uplifting “Love Is What We Are
Made For” melds stanky vamp-blues with emotive pop-rock hooks. Later on in the album, Alex imaginatively
revisits this track with a slinky groove which adds a soul-stirring dynamic to the song’s purposeful message.
