This is a producer’s story unlike any you’ve heard before. Alex Elena was raised in the back streets of Rome, Italy. His father, a drummer, and mother, an artist, often entertained and temporarily housed various musician friends from all around the world who would come to play jam sessions and record at their home. These multi-cultural artist souls fast became the much older brothers and sisters to this only child who first picked up a drumstick at the age of 3 and notoriously slept in the bass drum of his father’s drum kit until he got too big to fit. Like his father, Alex excelled at playing the drums and he played his very first gig at the age of 6 in front of a couple of thousand people.
