Exclusive Interview With Alex Aiono! (@alexaiono)
We recently had the opportunity of speaking with the super talented Alex Aiono! During the interview, Alex talked about going on tour with R5, getting started in the industry, the fans, and more!
Make sure you check it out below!
How did you get started in the music industry?
When I was fifteen, my family moved out from Mesa, AZ to Los Angeles so I could pursue my musical aspirations. And by just singing in public and meeting people on the street in LA, I was introduced to so many talented songwriters, producers, managers, etc.
How would you describe your music?
I would say that my music is an organic dance pop. It definitely has the four on the floor beats and elements of dance music. But I also play multiple instruments, so we like to include those in the productions as well!
What is your favorite song of yours?
Right now I would say it is Doesn’t Get Better. It’s my single, and I love it because it has every element of me in it!
Who are your favorite artists?
I love listening to the greats, like Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson, but I also am inspired by artists nowadays like Justin Timberlake and Kendrick Lamar!
Do you have any upcoming music or an album in the works?
Right now we are selling digital download cards at the shows and online, but you can definitely expect an EP to come out in the near future!
What artists do you want to work with in the future?
I would love getting together and writing with Adam Levine. I’ve been a HUGE Maroon 5 fan since I was a kid, so it would be sweet writing with Adam!
What do you like to do when your not working?
I love spending time with my family! We are very very close with each other, and always have the best times just hanging out!
Have you ever had any crazy fan encounters?
I would say that the craziest fan stories for me are just weird items that I have signed! I have signed shoes and the inside of backpacks, but the craziest one was when a mom asked me to sign her sleeping baby’s head! Haha
What was it like opening for R5?
pening up for R5 has been so much fun! They are such a great family and they have been amazing friends to me! It’s sad to think we only have 3 more weeks left of tour!
Do you have anything to say to your fans who have been supporting you?
I just want to thank them for every little thing they do! Every tweet, comment, like, message, etc. makes me so happy! I definitely have THE BEST fans in the world, and I don’t know what I would do without you guys!
Do you have any social media accounts where your fans can stay connected with you?
Yeah definitely! You guys can follow me on twitter and Instagram: @alexaiono
