I’d say like a disadvantage would be if that was the case and I was just doing it on my own, because everyone’s like, “Yeah, You Tube is great exposure,” but the truth of the matter is if you’re working with people who are bigger than you and can get you that exposure at the start, like that’s a great way to jumpstart unless you have a completely unique different-than-anyone-else sound and everything and you’re just driving people yourself.So it’s hard, but if you can get to that point where you don’t really need a record label, it’s like all the better because you get to do whatever you want: you get to put as much music as you’d like, you control your channel, you control your brand and your music, and in my opinion, if you can do it that way, do it that way.I grew up watching “I Love Lucy” and “The Carol Burnett Show,” and I’m like obsessed with Carol Burnett.

I think her relatability to people of my demographic and her writing to me is just so — she’s just so gifted in how she can say things so simply and so unique and creativity. I don’t know — I would want to be her best friend sort of thing.

I’m like, “That’s exactly what I just wrote in my diary yesterday sort of thing! See, there is a lot of people that say that, there is a lot of people that kind of get sick of the whole like, “Oh, it’s just all about guys,” and I’m like, “Well, yeah,” but I kind of get that.

Well, I don’t know, but they put on a persona that is very like relateable-ish, and I feel like I’d meet them and they’d be just so down to earth and awesome, and I don’t know, I just love them and how genius their comedy is. And I really respect her for not taking the route every other young star seems to take; like at least if she’s doing crappy stuff, we don’t know about it, so I really like that about her. It was a lot easier for me to just do it in my room by myself on my computer, but I was still nervous. I guess if I like this song, and if it’s a big song, it’s like more of like the business side of things with covers, and then originals is more like focus on myself as an artist. Like some people do a karaoke type version of a cover song, and in my opinion, that’s not going to drive as many people.

And she has this kind of — I don’t want to describe her as magical; she is just aww Taylor cute.[laughs] I didn’t have any thoughts about that. I mean, I never really thought that I would be the kind of person to put myself out there in front of the world like that, so it was kind of scary seeing myself on video. It will drive views; like there will be a lot of views but it’s important to me to like kind of have this Alex G flavor on the song, like acoustifying it and stuff, so yeah, sorry I kind of like forgot what you said. I was like going off and like what was the root of the question? Like say it’s a pop hit: I’ll make it into a slow acoustic.

Two years later, Alex has been the opening act for two of Tyler Ward’s tours and now splits her time between Colorado and Los Angeles working full-time developing her You Tube channel.

After a lunch that stuffed us with cheesecake and sweet potatoes, Alex and I hiked around Los Angeles to chat about her inspiration to pick up guitar, how the boy next door launched her career and the tattoo she plans to get when she turns 21.

It’s kind of like this innocent — I don’t know how to explain it — I just absolutely love her because she’s a genius. She is the only lady, the only person in the world that I would ever cry if I got to meet her, like it’s so weird.

You’d think like everyone loves [in high girly voice] Justin Bieber and Zac Efron and One Direction, and I’m like Carol Burnett.

An artist with over 269,000 You Tube subscribers, Alex started making music videos after winning a contest with the Tyler Ward Crew.
