Voyage LA Magazine Interview

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.
