Alex Wong’s curiosity has a varied appetite, and he’s always fed it well. A steady diet of projects as solo artist, producer, composer, and fittingly, chef, has taught him that the connections between seemingly separate disciplines can be a source of inspiration rather than distraction. Perhaps it stems from his synesthesia, a rare neurological condition where the brain perceives a relationship between unrelated senses. Wong sees sounds and hears colors. What a doctor would deem peculiar, his collaborators appreciate as a gift: this multi-sensory approach allows Wong to create visual soundscapes enhanced by his unique perception of the world around him.

"It's all creative expression—just in different dialects," Nashville-based Wong explains. He has an uncanny ability to communicate through varied genres and mediums, whether painting vivid worlds through his own songwriting, cultivating other artists’ ideas as a producer, or creating recipes for his pop-up restaurant, Angelhouse Family Dinner. His story has always been one of nonlinear paths, of redefining boundaries. From his time in major-label band The Din Pedals (Epic), to duo projects The Animators and The Paper Raincoat, to exploring his own voice as a solo artist, Wong has constantly pushed himself to find new flavors to satisfy his creative hunger.
