Alex Seier and Friends
The Listening Room Cafe
Thu, Feb 15 8:30 pm


Alex Seier is the eldest of four boys. Raised in a stone farmhouse in rural Pennsylvania his first job was picking potatoes at a nearby farm for $3.50 an hour. His father worked two jobs in order to support his wife and family and pushed his boys to do well in school. In turn, Alex was the first in his family to go to college. Being a pretty shy kid, it wasn’t until he got to college that Alex became interested in playing music. He found an acoustic guitar his mother stowed away in their farmhouse attic twenty years earlier and spent every minute outside of class teaching himself how to play. He became lost in the beauty of lyrics and melodies and the stories they told so he began writing songs and playing at the local VFWs, town festivals and county fairs. Soon thereafter he started a band, began selling out small venues, winning talent competitions, and opening for the major acts that passed through town.  Perhaps it was the countless tire changes from the gritty, unpaved roads traveling to his band’s nightly gigs that toughened up the once shy Alex, but it was more likely the music industry’s rocky road that chipped away his insecurities. Eventually, he secured a deal with Lava Atlantic Records. Fortune’s fate got him when the label dissolved and so did his record deal. No stranger to adversity, Alex’s steadfast perseverance found him national and international opportunities touring with Jessie James Decker, Hillary Duff, Secondhand Serenade, and many others. As well as performing on shows like The Today Show, Jimmy Kimmel, MTV, and Ellen, he also secured song placements for TV and movies.
