Alex Merullo — Boston Recording Connection
I was born and raised in the state of Massachusetts. I grew up about twenty minutes outside of Boston with a strict entertainment diet of hip hop, rock and video games. My musical tastes from my childhood sort of come through in my music, but they have definitely evolved over the years and that has also taken an influential toll on how I do what I do.
And what I do is I like to focus on lyrics that promote creative and critical thinking over beats that are more than a repeated drum loop and unintelligible bass. I tend to mix the structure of hip hop songs with the instrumental versatility of electronic music. The content of my lyrics are normally along the lines of philosophical concepts and various things that I notice in this strange planet we live on.
The reason I do what I do is because it seems to be the best way to express what I can't stop thinking about. It seems like the only way to communicate what it is I have to say in a somewhat normal way. It seems that what I have to say will not fit in a conversation, but there is a collection of clear messages in all of it. I'd like to think I'm more self-aware than narcissistic, but regardless, I'm paying attention to myself.
