He later went on to play guitar in the urban live backing band for Sheffield Hip Hop artist, J.Kas, and still continues this link as a session Guitarist for studio and occasional electric/unplugged performances.
In 2012 Alex joined The Makeshiftz on Keyboard, playing a mix of popular covers from different decades.
As well as undertaking various musical side projects, in his spare time he produces, mixes and DJs under the name of Captain Crossfader, who held a monthly DJ residency for 2 years at Club Couture on the second saturday each month.
All tracks on this profile are recorded in the low-fi amateur home recording studio in his basement, with most of the singing, as well as all of the instruments and mixing being done on his own, with occasional guest vocal cameos from friends. He plays lead/rhythm Guitar, Keyboard, Bass, Glockenspiel, Stylophone, Tambourine and on some desperate occasions, Drums.
The songs are made purely as a fun outlet for built-up creativity, and to experiment with different sounds and styles of recording in his spare time.
