Alex Kash Bio

Alex Kash is a registered Native American (Tlingit, Aleut, and Russian heritage) who is a recognized Thunderbeing by medicine men.  He is an international songwriter and three time award winning singer who has 10 CD's of original music.

He also worked in some of the world's most famous recording studios on projects with or for major artists including:  Van Morrison, Sly Stone, Pablo Cruise, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Dan Fogelberg, John Fogerty, Mark Isham, Delbert McClinton, Syreeta, Wright, Enzo Avitabile, Tim Weisberg, Narda Michael Walden, Tower of Power, Dire Straits, Maria Muldaur, Tom Johnston (Doobie Brothers), Grace Slick, Marty Balin, Pat Thrall, Nate Ginsberg, Larry Graham, Raz Kennedy, Lenny Pickett, Greg Allman and Cher among others.

Alex wrote songs for Pat Travers "Crash and Burn" album/CD, and Journey's "Look Into The Future" album/CD.

Inspired by the Beatles, Bob Dylan, and Motown, Alex first became a professional musician at the age of 13, and soon released his first record with (his band, Fever) a single release called, "Lazy" backed with "A Stone Shame", both of which were played on the San Francisco radio station, KSAN.  Recording fame came later though, with "She's Not There", a song Alex recorded solo in Rome, Italy, which became a dance hall hit and is now on the collector's circuit.

Alex is recognized in "Who's Who in America" for his classical composition, "Transitions" for ballet.

Almost equally dividing his time between work in numerous bands, and his solo career, Alex has performed on The Cow Palace stage (that once held the Beatles), and (Bill Graham's ) Winterland Arena.  

Rita Coolidge said, "Alex has one of the most beautiful natural voices, I've ever heard"

Tom Wood said, "Alex Kash is the Chord Master!"

C. Nathan Coyle said, "A complete package of talented sound"

Alex has written music for radio, film, tv, dance, and theatre, but he is most noted for his long span of music that respects the sacredness of the environment and nature, and his spiritual relationship with all of God's creation, performing live to heal the world. Musicians interested in playing in the Love and Light Church Band are encouraged to contact Alex through this site 

Alex has recorded many CDs with just his voice, a 12-string guitar, and occasional harmonica.

Alex is also avidly interested in organic gardening, sustainable living, permaculture and planting trees, working with city tree boards, to put thousands of trees in the ground, and into the hands of low income home owners.
