With millions of views on its Youtube channel and a community of friends, collaborators and fervent supporters, talented artist and YouTuber, Alexis Ricordi is set to release his debut album, “Honestly”. This thoughtful piece of art is set to hit platforms on May 13th and Alexis couldn’t be more thrilled to make the announcement.
This is a huge win for Alexis as music has been his lifelong passion. However, life has come. Now being able to do what he is truly passionate about is a step in the right direction. The album, “Honestly,” may be a deep dive into the relationships that have affected her life thus far. According to Alexis, “My lyrics mostly have to do with my interpersonal relationships, whether it’s with family, friends, or romantic partners.”
Growing up, Alexis remembers hosting so many shows/concerts for her family’s lip-synch to her mother’s Duran Duran tapes. Today, he and his team are ready, working hard to fulfill his dream of becoming one of the best entertainers in the world.
His decision to release music he secretly created is directly tied to his success as a YouTube content creator. Being part of the right team, Prime Capitol, has also contributed immensely to his success. Alexis remembers that leaving his job where he was not recognized despite the work he was doing and moving in with a friend put him on a pedestal. This brought him into the same space as Stromedy, a popular YouTuber with over 3 million subscribers where he was able to learn from him and other team members. Now he and a team of 5 create content for their various YouTube channels.
As Alexis continues to work and grow, he has been recognized by YouTube. He recently received a Youtube Creator Award for surpassing 100,000 subscribers on the platform. Unlike his work where he was not appreciated for all the effort he provided, Alexis is particularly delighted.
Alexis creates fun and awkward moments and exciting experiences with her team and this makes up most of her content on her channel. He was able to build a community that appreciates his work and gives him courage. His next album, “Honestly”, is a way to return the love they show him.
Alexis’ musical influence stems primarily from the music his parents listened to when he was a child; Spanish pop and salsa. While making music in the RnB and Pop categories, he credits listening to what his parents really liked really helped him develop his sound. He is also influenced by music legends such as Prince, Michael Jackson, The Beatles and Soundgarden. “I like to inspire my music from my varied tastes,” Alexis said.
“Making music, for me, has always been a cathartic experience. I often have overwhelming emotions that I struggle to put into words, but being able to put them into a song has always helped me express my feelings. I make music not only to talk about my experience but also to show people that it’s okay to feel things, you can’t always think about things objectively. Our individual experiences are so important, because they make up our lives, and I want to inspire people to get in touch with themselves and live for themselves and not for others,” he added.
Over time, the talented artist has worked with the likes of Kyle Godfrey (@stromedykyle), Austin Sprinz (@austin_sprinz), Jaiden Sprinz (@jaidensprinz), Andreas Eskander (@imwithandreas), Phantum (@1phantum). He also frequently collaborates with other members of the Prime Capitol team.
As Alexis releases his album, he hopes it will reach the right audience and can impact people with his music. He is also looking forward to creating content and music with household names in the industry.
