NYTimes - over 9 years

    Age 20
    In 1996, as a student of music composition and jazz drums at California Institute of the Arts, Alec launched the band Deadsy with longtime friend Elijah Blue, providing the impetus to write more songs and not just play the drums.
    More Details Hide Details Deadsy landed a record deal with DreamWorks Records and released their freshman album Commencement, which debuted on The Billboard Top 200 at #99, selling fifteen thousand copies in its first week. Deadsy went on several world tours, opening for bands such as Linkin Park, Korn and Stone Temple Pilots, performing to sold out crowds in large arenas such as the legendary Madison Square Garden.
