Tap Into Indie: Alex Seier

by Missy Wolf / 2434 days ago / Comments

As we start off the week continuing our Tap Into Indie Series, we bring you the very talented Alex Seier. As most of you know by now, Heart Songs Corporation and Center Stage Magazine teamed up to put on an independent artist showcase at Alley Taps in Nashville, Tennessee during CMA Fest 2017.

From moment one meeting Seier, I knew I would be in for a treat during our conversation backstage. His personality absolutely shines through to all who are in his presence. Though my initial meeting with him was not the typical first greeting, I knew immediately that we were going to get along famously. As he was getting ready for his set, there was a rather large part of me in his line of site. As soon as I realized his misfortune, I quickly tried to make it fun. He went right along with it, proving that he has a great sense of humor as well.

I was looking forward to having a great conversation with him backstage, however, what I did not expect was how down to earth and real he was going to also be. I found it extremely refreshing to speak with such a talented and experienced artist. He was so easy to speak to that I almost forgot we were filming a few times. 

As an artist, Seier was quick to admit that the music business is a lot harder than it was years ago, however, maintains that it is also a job that he loves. Ups and downs will always be there, but if you love what you are doing, then you are doing something right. Being a musician is not for everyone or everyone would do it. There is a lot of hard work involved. Listening to Seier explain it from his side was fascinating. I even discovered that we have something in common. I did not say it verbally, but if you watch closely, you will see the moment that filled my heart with delight as I realized we share this quality.

Continuing our conversation, we spoke about songwriting, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, what makes a song great, and more.  If you give one song to two artists, chances are one of them will sing it just a little more meaningful because of the emotions they connect with while performing it. As Seier explains, you can have a great song that no one records almost forgetting about it, and then all of a sudden (6 years later) it gets recorded and is a hit. These are the moments when you realize that it just needed that extra special artist to cut it for the full effect.

I could go on and on about this amazing artist and everything we spoke about, but I simply urge you to watch our full conversation for more. If you enjoy real conversation, great music, and a laugh or two, then go ahead and hit play now. Do not forget to follow Seier on social media and stay tuned for more. ~Missy
