Musician, Engineer

Alex Hall is a Chicago-based musician and engineer. He spends his time playing with and recording a variety of local and not-so-local musical-types including The Fat Babies, The Flat Five (feat. Kelly Hogan, Nora O'Connor, Scott Ligon, & Casey McDonough), J.D. McPherson, Pokey LaFarge, Joel Paterson, Robbie Fulks, The Western Elstons, The Cactus Blossoms, Chris Foreman and a host of others, all quite worthy but too numerous to ramble on here.

When he's not behind the drums or keyboards on stage, you can find him at the helm of Reliable Recorders/Hi-Style Studio in Chicago, twiddling knobs ferociously and wielding heavy microphones with aplomb. For those in need, he'll happily consider your mix or recording project.

Should you like to chat him up, he drums semi-regularly at The Green Mill with Joel Paterson and friends. He can also be found at other Chicago-area haunts in myriad musical combinations.
