He started feeling his passion for music at a young age when he picked up the guitar at the age of 12. At 16, he began performing live at local venues. Later on, Alejandro realized he wanted to take his career to the next level and decided to move to Los Angeles.
In Los Angeles Amézquita studied at the school that taught some of the best musicians in the industry, Musicians Institute Hollywood.
The experience he already had and his outstanding education made him become an established session musician, songwriter, and music director in Los Angeles.
Big personalities in the music industry started to hear his name and listen his work, which led him to regular writing sessions with renowned musician Randy Jackson, best known from his appearances as the longest-serving judge on American Idol and executive producer for MTV's America’s Best Dance Crew. These collaborative songs are pitched to artists as well as for movie and TV placements.
Alejandro fuses solid rhythm, catchy lead lines and engaging stage presence, which makes fans and music industry professionals be fascinated by his work.
This Mexican prodigy shares the stage with internationally known pop artists, has played at The Rose Parade’s New Year Celebration, performing with Grammy nominated artist Mickey Guyton at California’s Rose Bowl Stadium, and much more!
Apart from writing and performing, these days Alejandro is also the music director and guitarist for artists MAXX and Valentina Mami.
