After this success Alex continues to evolve in the swing and dance genres seeking the
right person to interpret his musical vision. In “OSCAR” he has found an outstanding
talent and collaborator.
Oscar’s career is a typical example of the American Dream. The youngest of five
children, Oscar was raised in a single parent household on the wrong side of town. His
mother struggled to make ends meet and make sure her children didn’t fall to the product
of growing up in a Southern CA “barrio” Oscar used his artistic passion for the arts as his
key to escape such meager beginnings. After successful career stints as a talented
fashion designer, and hair/makeup artist, he finally found his niche by heeding the
advice of those around him and making the switch from background to foreground.
Determined not to let a lack of formal training hold him back, at age 24 he left everything
behind and moved to New York to finally realize his dream of performing. Being new on
the scene was not an issue for Oscar. Only one month after having lived in the big apple
he was stopped by a famous Broadway producer/choreographer on the street and was
asked three questions, “Can you sing? Can you act? Can you dance?” The answer was
a resounding “Hell Yeah!” Thus beginning a whirlwind career across the world. Alongside
Broadway veterans and accompanied by world class orchestras. Oscar honed his
singing, dancing, and acting skills on internationally renowned stages in cities including
Bologna, Rotterdam, Vienna, Seoul, Beijing, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Berlin,
Köln, and Munich.
Oscar’s International experience combined with his skills and remarkable energy, form
the basis of continuing his transition from musical star to world class pop star.
With the track “Miss Kiss Kiss Bang” it has become possible to successfully combine
Alex’s superb abilities as producer, composer, and author with Oscar’s extraordinary
talent as a performer.
