About Alex Wong

“The universe is made up of stories, not atoms.” - Muriel Rukeyser

Hi. My name is Alex Wong, and I tell stories through music.

I started this page two years ago as a way to open a window into the process of making my second solo album, The Elephant and the Seahorse. It was amazing to get to interact with my patrons during the creative process because I love when art is a conversation and not just a monologue. What I didn’t expect was how much that conversation would change my whole approach to creating! Knowing that I was sharing my new, unpolished creations with a community of people who were actively listening, rather than just throwing them into the abyss of the internet and hoping for a like or two, motivated me to create more freely and boldly than I ever thought possible. It even inspired me to start creating WITH MY PATRONS, as we did in the video for The Quiet Voice (above).

Now that my solo album is complete, I hope to tell a more complete story of who I am through the art I share on this page. It all started with a challenge to "show myself," claim my space, and be seen, and I want the next phase of this page to expand on that mission. And by sharing the successes, fears, failures, and surprises along my journey, I hope to inspire others to tell more of their story to the world.

Here is what your patronage will help me accomplish over the next 12 months:
  • creating the official album for The Paper Raincoat musical
  • creating the official video for "Wherever You Are" with director Alex Berger
  • creating the artwork for solo album
  • marketing/promo for the solo album and duo album (Kivalina)
  • creating the accompanying book to my solo album with visual artist Brian Dettmer
  • creating an album of instrumental music based on commutes around the world

Become a Patron now and get immediate access to over 40 exclusive videos and songs not available to the public, as well as access to my blog posts, which include everything from tour photo diaries to my creative process to my experiences as a full-time musician in these very strange times.

This community has changed my creative life. I’m so grateful you are here.

Much love,
Alex Wong
