Alec was introduced to music at a very early age. His grandfather played piano in a rock band in the late 50’s to early 60’s (Butch & The Boys) and began teaching Alec the basics of piano. By the early age of 12 Alec had downloaded Fl Studio 3 & had began “remaking” beats to learn how to use the software properly after repeatedly being told the program was "too difficult to figure out". By the time he was 15 he had bought his first Midi Keyboard and began going to work on original and some sample based music. Alec began putting countless hours into his music production, ensuring success was around the corner.
