Biography,Early life and careerGregg Alexander was born in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, United States, and raised in a conservative Jehovahs Witness household. He received his first guitar at the age of twelve and taught himself to play several instruments. Along with his sister, Caroline, theyd play the piano and Gregg would compose songs. At age fourteen Gregg joined the band The Circus, with classmates George Snow, John Mabarak, along with Greggs older brother Stephen Aiuto. They played the 1984 highschool Battle of the Bands, competing against John Lowery (John 5). By the age of sixteen, he signed his first recording contract with A&M after playing his demo tapes to producer Rick Nowels. He released his debut album Michigan Rain in 1989 at the age of nineteen, to little notice. In 1992, he signed to Epic and released Intoxifornication, which consisted largely of re-released songs from Michigan Rain and was again ignored.In the mid-1990s, Alexander busked in Tompkins Square Park and Central Park.New RadicalsMain article: New RadicalsIn 1997, Alexander formed the New Radicals, a revolving-door band with no permanent members other than Alexander and long-term collaborator Danielle Brisebois. They released the album Maybe Youve Been Brainwashed Too in October 1998, which went on to sell over a million copies. The single You Get What You Give was released that fall and was an international hit.It was not long after the New Radicals success that Alexander became tired of the constant media attention and exhaustive touring schedule. In July 1999, Someday Well Know was announced as the bands second single. However, several days later Alexander announced he was disbanding the New Radicals to focus on production work. He said that the fatigue of traveling and getting three hours sleep in a different hotel every night to do boring hanging and schmoozing with radio and retail people is definitely not for me. Despite disagreements with MCA, Alexander finally agreed to shoot a video for Someday Well Know, but with the band now defunct, the song got little attention and the New Radicals became known as a one-hit wonder. The song, You Get What You Give has been featured in several movies including, Surfs Up, Pushing Tin, The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas, Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, and Click. Along with that, Gregg had songs featured in the movies A Walk To Remember and Bend It Like Beckham, among others.Post New RadicalsSince disbanding the group in summer 1999, Alexander has written and produced songs for artists including Ronan Keating, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Enrique Iglesias, Texas, Geri Halliwell, Melanie C, Monica Naranjo, Rod Stewart and fellow ex-New Radical Danielle Brisebois. Most noteworthy was the song The Game of Love by Santana and Michelle Branch, which earned Alexander a Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals at the 45th Annual Grammy Awards.Allmusics Stephen Thomas Erlewine described him as the catchiest, smartest professional mainstream pop songwriter of the early 2000s.In 2004 a new Alexander track, A Love Like That, was released uncredited on the Internet. It was suspected to be a New Radicals outtake, as parts of the lyrics were found in the booklet for Maybe Youve Been Brainwashed Too.A new song entitled Why Cant We Make Things Work written by Alexander (and Rick Nowels) was released by Any Dream Will Do winner Lee Mead in November 2007, on his self-titled album.In 2010, Boyzone released the single Love Is a Hurricane, written by Gregg Alexander and Danielle Brisebois.He co-wrote and co-produced the music for the musical romance-drama film Begin Again, along with long-time collaborators Danielle Brisebois and Rick Nowels, as well as Nick Lashley.
