Music Monday Featured Artist - Alex Lagos
- Alex Lagos -
Alex Lagos is a singer/songwriter/producer hailing from the small-town of Wrentham, Massachusetts and now resides in Nashville, Tennessee.
What started as a rap experiment has evolved into something much more, and it looks to be ever-growing as Alex handles all of his own production, writing, recording, and engineering.
This is why it's clear to see a progression towards earning Alex the label of a musical "renaissance man".
Having laid a sturdy foundation to build upon by fusing together elements from influences such as Jon Bellion and countless others, Alex is settling into the barely-populated genre of hip-pop. Alex is blending positive pop instrumentation with hip-hop rooted percussion and effects, quickly developing a unique sound to call his own as he continues to mature.
The Music of Alex Lagos
Alex Lagos is currently working on a project he started earlier this year. The project showcases his many talents and puts a smile on the faces of his fanbase every month.
Alex named this project #12for12.
#12for12 is a year long endeavor releasing one song for each month of the year with a visual to accompany each record. All the songs can be streamed/downloaded on iTunes, Spotify and Tidal as well as Google Play, Amazon Music, and others.
Alex has 3 albums under his belt.
Alex Lagos released his first album on New Year's Day of 2015 titled The Dormtape. This album was a true mix-tape in every sense of the word. The 20-track project consisted of mostly remixes, but featured 6 originals with which Alex also made his producing debut. The Dormtape charted Top 25 on Audiomack!
After The Dormtape Alex Lagos immediately began working on his next project aiming for a more "album-esque" feel.
The result was and an album titled Inside Out. With this release, Alex started developing a unique sound to call his own by blending positive and often cinematic pop instrumentation with hip-hop rooted percussion and effects.
Alex's latest release titled Human EP dropped in the Fall of 2016. This 7-track compilation is a matured continuation of the ideas and concepts that came from Inside Out while presenting itself as a brightly-colored soundscape to match the warm sunset depicted on the artwork.
