Stallings Music

GROOVES FOR YOU

 

 

Alex hails from the modest seaside village of Virginia Beach, Virginia. His inspiration to learn music came from an eclectic blend of classic Prog Rock, Celtic folk albums,  and 90's metal.

He attended Berklee College of Music and graduated in 2012 with a degree in Contemporary Writing and Production. While balancing studies and career, his musical endeavors have brought collaborations with a truly wide variety of artists in Boston and Nashville. He has performed live and in the studio with folk artist Dylan Laine, RnB/Rock phenomenon Marc Evan Diaz, Nashville songwriter Mark Henry, Benjamin Rupe of Swingin Hammers, rock/metal act Accelerated Age, Doug Makuta of MAKUTA, and a full-length album and numerous tours with the Boston-based Technical Death Metal frenzy Replacire. His dedication to musical versatility has proven a valuable tool in the music industry.

He currently enjoys playing bass for Nashville artists, frying eggs and traveling.

Hannah Stallings is a drum set player, percussionist, and educator based out of Nashville, TN.  She works as a freelance Drum Set player both in the live and studio settings, and also instructs at the School of Rock Nashville.

As a 12-year-old, Hannah had no idea what instrument to play in the middle school band. She had been taking piano lessons since the ripe age of 4, but piano was not an option in concert band. One day, her dad asked her, “What’s your favorite song?” She proceeded to play Let’s Get Loud by Jennifer Lopez on the boombox, and when asked why, she replied, “I like the beat”. It was then obvious to Hannah’s dad; she should try percussion.

Since then, Hannah has completed a Diploma in Music Performance from Grant MacEwan University in her hometown Edmonton, Canada in 2010, and a Bachelors in Music Education from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA in 2014. She has performed, toured, and recorded with a number of artists, notably CCM singer/songwriters Ginny Owens and Tyrus Morgan, R&B/pop sensations Marc Evan Diaz, Ashe and Belinda Huang, up-and-coming blues/Americana artist Swingin Hammers, Nashville’s premiere all-female country group Fading June, and knock-out progressive rock group Khris Glaring. She has also had appearances on ABC's Nashville Season 4 and JUCE Network's JUCE Live with Ginny Owens. Hannah also loves to teach, and she absolutely loves seeing her students develop musically and experience joy throughout the process.
