My name is Alex also known as Alex œGodson. I've got to be one of the luckiest men in the world. I've spent the last 25 years of my life working in the music business as a musician, producer, publisher, record executive, programmer, beat-maker, educator, and entrepreneur. In this time, I've had an incredible run working with the likes of Trak Masterz, Mona Scott Young, Sean Combs, Perri "Pebbles" Reid, Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, Teddy Riley, Usher, Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Mary J Blige, and so many others. Now I'd like to share what I've learned with people who are just starting out and want to share their vision together. To share all of the insight, experience and/or stories, I've gained over 25 years in the music business.
