Alex Masters~ “Q&A”!!!

1.    Hi Alex, can you tell me a little bit about yourself before you became a country musician? Hey Danaille! I think I’ve always been a musician… playing instruments, singing, writing songs. Can’t think of a time when I wasn’t. : )

2.    How did you start listening to country music and when did you know you wanted a career in it? I’m assuming I started hearing country music days after I took my first breath, but I probably really started “listening” and paying attention around age 4. I’d say I knew I wanted to try to pursue a career in country music when I was in 6th grade. 

3.    Who are some of your musical icons? This a such a tough question for me… growing up I loved Faith Hill, Shania Twain, the Dixie Chicks, and Sheryl Crow. 

4.    What is the background story behind your latest song “California?” My husband Spencer and I lost our first baby when I was around 8-10 weeks pregnant and it was devastating for us. We named that sweet baby California and the song was my way of coping with it. 

5.    What is your songwriting process when writing a new song? Usually an idea just kind of hits me randomly, and then I write it down and think on it for a few days. Then when a melody for the idea hits me (if it doesn’t happen at the same time as the concept hits me), I’ll grab my guitar or sit at the piano and see what spills out naturally. Then if I dig it, I might finish it on my own or bring it to my next cowrite. 

6.    Is there anything new coming up with your music in 2019? Possibly! There are a few things in the works, so we’ll see. 

7.    What do you hope people take away from your music when they listen to it? Hope. Life. Relatability. Hope that the hurt will heal. That life can suck, but it’s so incredibly beautiful. And that we all have similar emotions and thoughts and are never alone. 

8.    What is one of your favorite quotes? I have A LOT, but currently, “If there’s a Goliath standing in front of you, then there’s a David inside of you.” Biblical reference and so inspiring!
