We had the good fortune of connecting with Alex Bergan and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Alex, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
Honestly, It kind of plays hand-in-hand with anybody else’s process. We are tired of working for the man and we want to do anything and everything to make our work not really work anymore. Of course, there’s a high mountain to climb to get to that point, but the end goal is to turn what we love into our day jobs.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
To put it simply, the four of us met on the premise of one thing: bringing our love and inspiration from different music all together to create something completely unique. Because we see this band as a brotherhood and not just a band, it was quite easy. The four of us all had visions and we were able to bring them all together effortlessly to bring them to light. Of course there are points that we have to bend just a little bit, but that’s the beauty of this whole thing. We all get a little bit of what we want. We want the world to know that we will not stop here. The past year has thrown many curveballs to everyone and those out there that listen to us should know that we are just barely getting started.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I’ll take them on a hike! There’s a lot of beauty outside of the city here. But to get a drink… If it was open we would have to go to 7 Grand in North Park. The best little whiskey bar around! It’s honestly quite a heavy question because there’s so much to do out here. So depending on where the weekend takes us, we shall go.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Those that deserve the biggest shout out are all of those that have supported us this far. As of now we are still a relatively small group, but because of those that play our music, by our merchandise and go to our shows, we are able to keep the dream alive. So to all of you, we thank you endlessly!
