First entering the New York City music scene in early 2008, Alex Montanez quickly gained the approval of audiences with his gift of interpretation. Playing sets consisting mostly of cover tunes, Alex's confidence grew as he graced venue after venue in downtown NYC with the few originals he sprinkled into each set. After performing in the many different stages that New York City has to offer, Alex found a home in a small lounge in West Village called Gizzi's. Packing this lounge show after show, he decided it was time to take his original music more seriously. Having a collection of tunes he wrote over the years, he picked the best of them to re-record into his debut album. After awakening to the atrocities that are being committed to everyone all over the world, and realizing the corruption that lies within every aspect of society, his focus in songwriting was not only to entertain, but to educate; educate people as to what is really going on in the world today. He dubbed his debut album "Begin Again", explaining what he feels we, as a society, need to do. With songs such as "Light Bulb", "N.W.O." and "Future On Fire", Alex sets forth his views in plain English for the world to see, digging deep into the topics that the mainstream media and most mainstream radio artists fail to address. Educating the masses is the goal and driving force behind Alex Montanez. Releasing his debut album free of charge, Alex hopes to accomplish his goal of reaching the masses and establish himself as one of the greatest messengers of truth through music that there ever was. In early 2012, the missing pieces were found as Alex partnered with Harrison D. Wade (keyboard), Javier Pardo (bass) and Michael Poppa (percussion). Currently in the studio, they hope to have the re-release of "Begin Again" out by early Spring.
