Tall Hairy Greek with Glasses

Comments: 56

You know when you start singing in a choir for fun or watch American Idol and say “if only…”  Well shoot!  I… IF ONLY-ED!  I’ve sung my whole life, like so many people, but I sung in front of strangers AAAND they didn’t throw anything at me.  They actually didn’t mind a giant kid bellowing songs in their ears!  Who woulda thunk it?

Music has always been in my family, but I was the first to pursue it in any professional Manner.  I have a giant-jovial family.  The “giant” I’m talking about is my dad is 6’5”, Brother 6’3” and sister over six foot…and I’m taller than all of them.  If there aren’t smiles on their faces they can come off as an intimidating mob!  Mom would always have smooth jazz in the house and Dad would come in every evening after work screaming a song from the 60’s or 70’s at full blast to let us all know he was home.

I’ve been in some sort of musical group since I was in 5th grade but never really took it seriously until my high school senior year musical.   I was a Greek awkward giant playing a Russian with a gray beard glued to my face, singing the last notes of Fiddler on the Roof and getting a standing-ovation….I was hooked! Now people recognized me for my music instead of just a colossal kid from class.

From there on I looked at music differently…something I wanted to be closer to… something that set me apart besides my physic.  Listening and mimicking wasn’t good enough…I needed to explain my feelings in the music I made.

Fast forward through getting a music degree in college, being in numerous musical groups, working with ESPN Radio, a myriad of theme song/commercial/movie jingles and a couple reality television experiences including a brief sighting on American Idol keeps fueling that rush as a musician even if it gets difficult along the way.

I feel that attaching myself to family and friends that supported this musical journey was the catalyst I needed to release and guide creativity.  But perhaps even more importantly, is YOU, the listener, that makes all of it matter!

I look forward to many more sometimes-hard, sometimes ugly, always worthwhile experiences along this musical journey.  Here’s to hoping that you are part of that journey.

Thank you for being a listener and for making it all matter.

  • Yvonne says:

    For 5 years ago I listen you the first time on smule .
    I found you are a talenting amazing singer .
    Maybe you have the chance to distribute you’re songs and music all over the world . And everybody in the world can listen to your music and your voice .
    In Germany our talentshow called Deutschland sucht den Superstar ( the same as American idol ) . Dieter Bohlen are sitting in the jury . Maybe you know him from modern talking . He is really famous and a famous music producer . He sad , it gives so many people they are good singer , but the most important thing in music is that you feel the music . I can hear it in your voice . Keep it up Alexi.
    I’ll keep my fingers crossed 😀.
    Sorry for my grammar I am no longer in exercise.

      I can’t believe it has been that long Yvonne! Thanks for singing with me all the way till now:) I’ve never heard of Dieter Bohlen, but I looked Modern Talking up and he has a very high voice like the Bee Gees! Your grammar is great! Thanks for the support all these years Yvonne!

    Just joined Smule the end of May and really enjoy your passion and belief in yourself as an artist-very encouraging and inspiring! Good luck with your album! Any advise for other artists?

    • aleximuzic_5gf0ib says:

      Thanks so much Rachel! Advice for an artist?… find out who you are and what you are trying to say. Know this is knowing who you are…this is how you are unique:)

  • Berta Lamm says:

    Hello again Alexi. 🙂
    Your story is as unique as you are. I echo a lot of other comments in that I look forward to going to Smule each day to see what else you have for us, hoping it’s something I can sing with you (this last time it was All About That Bass). I too, was in a lot of musical groups growing up (mainly choir, and worship teams at church), but fell in love with music…. sadly, I did not pursue it, and it became less of a passion… however, singing with you is reviving that passion again, and I can feel the strength and power returning to my vocal chords… so thank you for helping to revive me. 🙂
    Until the next time on Smule. 🙂

    • aleximuzic_5gf0ib says:

      Thanks so much Berta:) that’s the best part about music, you can always come back to it. It’s a great outlet to always be there for you! I’m glad you found Smule and Music! What a meld of great things:)
