Ian Alex is no novice to music. He's been grinding and cultivating his craft since a child. As he was growing up, his father, who was a skilled saxophone player, would play music of all genres in the house. His father would take him to gigs from time to time to watch him play. Ian also hung around his father as he rehearsed with the band. This environment of music helped spark Ian's drive to pursue music.

Knowing what his dreams were in the early stages, he decided that he wanted to go to high school to learn music. So, in 9th grade, he went to Truman high school in the Bronx. At the time, he joined the school's music choir and became a little celebrity in the school. He also picked up battle rapping in the cafeteria, which helped with the writing of songs later on. Feeling like he was a fish out of water, Ian decided to audition for a performing arts school, and the school he chose was the Boys Choir of Harlem. For three years in The Boys Choir of Harlem, Ian was able to hone his skills in music and business.

After that, Ian got an internship at Atlantic Records where he worked under Gerald Roberson, who managed Kayne at the time. From there, Ian worked with legendary producer, Fyffe, who produced hits like 50 Cent's "Straight to the Bank." With TyFyffe, he helped him produce a YouTube series called TyFyffeTv, where they showed the day in the life of a music producer. With so much history, it's clear to see why Ian’s future seems so bright.
