SongVault Artist Profile
California, United States
Pop / Urban
There is a new wave of Producers/Artists with crossover appeal and leading the wave is Alex Rosales. Hailing from the race capital of the world, Alex Rosales has been involved in the creation of music since an early age. He wrote his first song at age 11. At the mere age of 13, he was playing piano at venues around Indianapolis, IN. with men twice his age. At 18, he landed his first management contract with a former writer for LaFace Records.
Alex spends most of his time in one of his apartments' 10x15 rooms , which he has made into a project studio, making sounds that eventually become songs. Staring at l.e.d lights and lava lamps from which his music jumps, creating rhythms which pave paths for his "humms" to run, skip, fall and sprint briskly on. Swapping instruments on different tracks and staring tirelessly at endless wave files and Protools sessions. His songs are often time landscaped with high volume infectious synth lines and/or pounding drums. Ambitious to perform a collection of songs in a variety of ways has resulted in a treasure chest of instruments being used and abused, with mood creation at the forefront of his happy little brain.
Alex has also remixed and done production for numerous acts including American Idol contestant Mark Scott, latin hip-hop acts Brown Prophetz and Akwid. Alex's merengue club remix of Rihanna's hit, "Where Have You Been" got notable play in Spain and here in the states on spanish radio.
Alex now resides in Los Angeles, CA and is promoting his most recent recording, "The Sound EP" which features 4 tracks produced, written and performed by Alex. The song, “All Out" is the first single and features fellow Indiana native, Young Vro. “All Out” is currently being pushed to college radio.
