“The name Alex Wong may not necessarily be one that’s immediately recognizable, but just take a look at his impressive résumé and it quickly becomes apparent that this is an artist who has already made a tremendous impact on the indie music scene in his varied career. Moving between the roles of singer-songwriter, producer, engineer, band member and all-around mentor, Wong has run the gamut and done so with aplomb and dexterity. His projects carry a subtle signature that is engaging, modern-with-heart and wholly engaging. His approachable skill pushes his collaborators to explore new territories and ways of expression, which ultimately benefits the project and creates sounds and spaces that reveal new strengths.” -Glide Magazine, July 2012
Wong has produced records for artists such as Delta Rae (Warner Music), Ari Hest (Downtown/Mercer St), Morgan Karr (Hollywood), Melissa Ferrick (Mpress), and Vienna Teng (Rounder/Universal). He garnered a LATIN GRAMMY nomination for his work on Miguel Bosé’s album “Papitwo.” His songs have been featured in numerous film and television projects such as The Last Song (Disney/Touchstone), One Tree Hill, and The Lincoln Lawyer (Lion’s Gate) and commercials for Google and Aquafina. He is an artist who infuses layers of meaning in all he creates. His songs stick with you the fist time you hear them, but reveal a much deeper complexity upon repeat listens. His debut solo album, A City On A Lake, explores this idea by using the history of Mexico City (built on top of an ancient lake bed) as a metaphor for how things that happen on the surface of our lives is affected by the forces underneath. It became a Spotlight album on iTunes and was featured on NPR’s Mountain Stage.
Alex is currently recording his next solo album, composing a musical, and writing a cookbook in Nashville Tennessee.
