Alex: Music has always been somewhat of a coping mechanism for me. Yes, I’m a songwriter and it helps me deal with a lot of trauma to write, but I’m also a music consumer. I listen to so much music and it is really my therapy. I’ve always been drawn to grungy guitars, and that rebellious sound of rock n’ roll. If I didn’t have music in my life, I’m not sure what I’d be up to or if I’d even be alive. My life seems pretty pointless without music. I’m sure I’d find something to do.
