Celebrating Rockwood Music Hall's 15-Year Anniversary!
Alex Wong is a Nashville-based producer, writer and performer whose signature sonic style resonates in all he creates–from cinematic pop soundscapes to electronic tinged theater scores to his honest, direct songwriting. He has produced recordings with leading artists such as Delta Rae (Sire/Warner Bros), Ari Hest (Downtown/Mercer Street), Elizabeth and the Catapult (Verve/Forecast), Melissa Ferrick (MPress Records), Vienna Teng (Rounder/Universal) and Grammy nominee Ximena Sarinana (Sire/Warner Bros.) with whom he performed at both Coachella and SXSW in 2012. His work with Ms. Sarinana can also be heard on the new Bob Dylan tribute album Chimes of Freedom for Amnesty International on the song “I Want You” (featured track on the Starbucks edition) available 1/24. Alex has garnered critical acclaim for his songwriting collaborations with recording artists Amber Rubarth (The Paper Raincoat), Vienna Teng, Paul Freeman, Elizabeth and the Catapult, and Alex Berger (Independent Music Award winner). His songwriting has been heard in film and television projects such as The Last Song (Disney/Touchstone), One Tree Hill, and The Lincoln Lawyer (Lion’s Gate).
On July 17, 2012, Alex released his first solo album, A City On A Lake, which featured vocal performances by Ari Hest and Ximena Sarinana. This was followed by the release of the music video for the single off the album, “Oceanside,” directed by Lawrence Chen and Hagan Wong.
