We had the good fortune of connecting with Alexander Clark and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Alexander, let’s talk legacy – what do you want yours to be?
In my career field as a music producer and artist, I would want people to remember me by the joy I brought them when they heard my music for the first and continual time. I want people to hear the song I created and give them a piece of nostalgia when they sing the lyrics. When people hear the songs I provide, I want them to have a strong memory of a day they were happy or sad about a specific time in their life. Music is such a beautiful gift to this world and I would feel humbled to be remembered by the creative sounds that I was able to give to the world through my own thoughts and feelings.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I work full time in the United States Air Force and can only focus on my music career on the time I have off duty. This limits the amount of efforts I can put forth into my creative focus. While pushing through both of these careers, I was also working on my bachelors degree in Music Business, then transferring credits over to Business Administration. I now can officially say I have a bachelors degree in Business Administration and over 30 credits in Music Business. The challenges that these obstacles brought was mostly time. Time management was very essential in balancing my work, school and personal life. I find making a good plan for the week and writing down notes in my calendars best for working through these obstacles.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Tucson has a few cool spots out here that can be really enjoyable. Mount Lemmon is a beautiful drive up 9000′ and can give you a 20 degree cool off. The environment completely changes as you go higher from a desert to green land filled with pine trees and grass. Id also take my friends down town on University where to Gentle Bens where I DJ every Saturday. There are plenty of great food places here including Sakura Hibachi grill, El Cornado, and Miss Saigon.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I have to say I was always motivated by David Guetta and his drive to continue being a famous producer. His success and fame didn’t take off until he was in his forties and that alone drives me to continue working at my craft no matter what age I become. He initiated my ambition to being a successful artist back around 2012 when I discovered him and his fantastic music. A more recent motivator and Idol I have now is Illenium and his breathe taking emotional future bass music. His style and branding is everything I ever wanted and is living the dream life I plan to live one day. Watching him and studying his moves has made me a better producer and DJ today.
