Eclectic and positive are the defining features to Alex Brinkley’s music. No matter if he is composing for the orchestra, writing original songs, or arranging for big band, his sense of storytelling and catchy melodies are timeless. Alex’s first interest was in songwriting as he learned guitar, piano, and started to sing in his early teens. Through school and Drum Corps International, he learned both saxophone and tuba.
