FINALLY… NEW MUSIC (AND, YES, A NEW WEBSITE)!

I know it’s been a long time in coming, but we’re finally in a place where the new album is taking shape and we’re ready to share some things with everybody. It’s been a slow process, but that was kinda deliberate.When we first arrived in Los Angles last fall, I felt like I’d already grown so much as an artist since we released The Ballerina EP. But with the help of my amazing producer, Curt Schneider, every trip back to LA bolstered my writing and my understanding of my own voice. I was more excited about what we were writing and recording every time out there. The whole process was inspiring – Curt, the amazing musicians on the record, being in the hills of California. Everything.

So I really hope you like the two ROUGH mixes I’m sharing with you now. One is a song I’d had around for a while waiting to be recorded called “Learning To Live” and the other is a brand new song I wrote with Curt called “Countdown To Zero.” They aren’t really finished and will likely change a bit before the record is finished, but they’re definitely a good indication of where I’m at now as a writer and singer.

Hope you like the new website, too! It’ll change some when we do the album photo shoot in August, but we felt the new music deserved a new place to live, too….

Love,

Alexa

ABOUT ALEXA

Sitting in a coffee house in Nashville’s Hillsboro Village, it might be easy to mistake Alexa Carter for one of the thousands of young women seeking fame and fortune as the next Carrie Underwood.

But while the confident 22-year-old singer and songwriter has a definite appreciation for the country music of her adopted hometown, one listen to her songs and huge voice tell an entirely different story. It’s the story of a young artist influenced by virtually every form of music, with a bit art and fashion thrown in for good measure.

Always passionate about music – “I came out of the womb singing,” she admits with a wry smile – Carter boldly announced to her parents at 15 that she wanted to move from their Mississippi home to New York City to continue her education and hone her skills as a writer and singer at the Professional Children’s School. Her
parents, filled with the anxiety any parent would feel about letting their child head off to the big city, eventually relented and gave Alexa the freedom to pursue her art.

“Those years were so important to my growth as a writer and a singer,” Alexa recalls. “Looking back, it was kind of a brave and crazy thing for me to do, but I knew that it was time for me to be in an environment that would push me to hone my craft and just allow me to be creative.”

Once in New York, Alexa found herself surrounded with creative and gifted people her own age from all walks of life. “I met so many wonderful and artistic souls from the moment I got there,” she says. “They opened my eyes to so many amazing things I hadn’t been exposed to. And being surrounded by so many talented people pushed me to really work on being the best singer and the best writer I could be.”
