Alex Hendrix's songwriting interest began with her father printing out lyrics to folk classics like American Pie, The Wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald and The Boxer. He'd go line by line and explain the context, the history, and the subtle genius in the lyrics. Throughout her childhood she wrote poems and lyrics that she kept in spiral notebooks (and occasionally uploaded to blog sites embarrassingly enough) until finally picking up a guitar at 17.

I started playing music because I had something to say

"I've never thought of myself as a musician and I've never really thought of myself as a singer. That's not why I started playing music. I started playing music because I had something to say and I needed an outlet," Alex said in a 2017 interview with Spice Rack Studios.

In her debut album Phases Alex catalogues the up and down patterns of love, life and mental illness. With classic folk influences, Americana sounds and Southern gothic undertones, her lyric-centric writing focuses on the emotional themes that tie us all together.

These little weirdos are named after two folk legends- Jim Croce and Gordon Lightfoot's The Wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald

We are the music makers,
and we are the dreamers of dreams,
wandering by lone sea-breakers,
and sitting by desolate streams;
World losers and world forsakers,
on whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
of the world for ever, it seems
