Music is Medicine for the Mind

by Alexander Griepentrog
(Green Bay, WI, US)

Hello fellow songwriters, my name is Alex and I am 22 years old. I taught myself guitar at the age of 10 and have been in love with it ever since. I bring it with me wherever I go and without it I feel lost. I get much of my inspiration from observations of the world around me. I love every type of music there is and always find myself switching from genre to genre when writing. I think it challenges me as both a songwriter and a person to view every situation from a different percpective. I feel that I am strongest when writing with the influence of bands such as Matchbox 20, OAR, Third Eye Blind, and other similar artists. My weakest genre might be hip hop, but I feel that I still have a very good grasp on the flow and rhythm. I have had a few short stories and poems published in local publications and am often complimented on my ability to create a picture in someones mind with few words. I like to incorporate music into my stories as much as possible. One of my favorite quotes is in my short story called, "A Few Drops of Rain". It states, "The water of the creek rippled over the rocks making a sweet melody. The ridges of every individual rock came up with a different sound, a separate tone, that to say the least, was a harmony that never seemed to end." I love imagery and often find myself closing my eyes and attempting to describe my surroundings in as much detail as possible. I want people to be able to see the world through anothers eyes. My songs often reflect that. I hope to share thoughts and ideas with others in the industry. Below is my contact information and I look forward to hearing, sharing, and meeting everyone!
