HOLMDEL, N.J. - Drummer Alex Silvergold releases his debut album I Believe A Change on March 1st.  A video teaser for the album featuring a behind-the-scenes look at the recording session can be viewed HERE.



Alex is a 19-year-old drummer from New Jersey with a unique style that combines his love of rock, R&B, neo-soul, and jazz.  Alex has recorded with guitar virtuosos Ray Suhy and Mike Roman and singer/songwriter Pamela Flores.  Alex has performed with drummer Carmine Appice and has played with music legends Andy Prado, Carmine Appice, Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan, Richie Kotzen, Adrian Forbes, and more.  Alex is currently studying Professional Music at the Berklee College of Music.
