Preview: Graham Alexander

With a style that is both eclectic and signature, Graham Alexander’s life has been dedicated to performing, composing and producing music from an early age. Graham’s passion for performance was nurtured by his work on Broadway as an actor, musician, and musical director in various productions at the Neil Simon, Brooks Atkinson, and St James theaters in New York City. It was during his tenure in New York Cities’ Broadway circuit that he began work on his sophomore album, Repeat Deceiver. In this episode, we will learn about the motivation behind Graham’s merger with Radio Corporation of America and launching the recording division, Victor Talking Machine Co./Victor Talking Machine Label Group.
