Today we’d like to introduce you to Alex Lu.
Hi Alex, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I am a film and TV composer based in Pasadena. I’ve been a musician since an early age and can’t remember wanting to be anything else. My first job as a teenager was giving piano lessons to kids around the neighborhood. Since then, every job I’ve ever had was music-related. As a kid, I use to think being a Nordstrom pianist (remember those?) was the coolest thing. So when I turned 18, which is what the hiring manager said I’d need to be to apply, I submitted an audition tape and was hired, being the youngest pianist in Nordstrom history. So if you ever shopped at Nordstrom throughout So Cal in the late 90’s, I might have accompanied your shopping experience with a jazzy rendition of Radiohead. Nowadays, I write music for film and TV.
