Alex Karlsson is a singer/songwriter from Orange County, California. He grew up in various parts of Europe and Florida and spent much of his early youth seeing the world by boat. Being part of a musical family, Alex was put in front of the piano by his concert pianist mother at the age of two. Alex has been writing and playing music his whole life, and less then two years ago his music writing skills were discovered at a restaurant in Hollywood by Grammy winning music producer Che Vicious (producer of Dr Dre, 50 Cent, Lauren Hill, Eminem, Jay-Z and Kanye West).
Che took Alex straight in to the studio that weekend and life has never been the same. Che followed Alex to Sweden the following weekend to continue to work together around Alex's school schedule and says, "Alex's exceptional talent as a world class song writer is undeniable". Alex has since been in Los Angeles, Atlanta, London and Stockholm recording songs with Dallas Austin, Andreas Carlsson, Che Vicious and many other leading producers, while also filming the pilot for a TV show about his life.
Along with his musical passion, Alex is an Ambassador and Advisor to the World Peace Foundation. Other advisors include H.H. Dalai Lama, Rev. Desmond Tutu, Sir Richard Branson and a variety of Heads of State and Noble Peace Price winners. Alex has also been tasked with co-writing and producing the Artists for Peace song.
Alex has been touring all over the world as a DJ at clubs like NIKKI BEACH (St Tropez), GOTHA (Cannes), LIFE (Monaco) and at the parties of leading F1 GP event management company My Yacht
"Monster headphones have the clearest sound of any studio headphones I have ever used. The design is so cool I made them in to a permanent accessory around my neck, always available when I want to listen to a song."
