Alex listens to his new demo,”Untouchable” (written with David Kopatz).
Alex’s initial reaction upon hearing the track (while still wearing headphones):
“There’s so much auto tune!! It’s ridiculous! I hate autotune!” He went on to explain to a Purple Melon band member that he has good pitch, but that they add the autotune to make it sound more modern, cause it’s like American Idol, which is more pop.
Then he exclaimed that you can’t even hear his voice cause the production is so big. The band member said he expected it to be more stripped down based on how Alex had described his music, like James Morrison. Alex said, “I wish!!”
I am increasingly getting the impression, based on the music ALEX likes and the comments he’s making, that he really doesn’t have much choice in how his music is going to sound, that he’s going along with this overproduced, pop sound cause that’s what they’re telling him to do, and he doesn’t want to rock the boat.
And that just sucks!!!
