Meet Alec Chambers, the virtuosic 19-year-old singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who could understand chord charts well before he could operate a motor vehicle. Chambers recently released his much-anticipated first single “Whole Again.” Below is our exclusive interview with Alec!

Hi Alec, it’s nice to talk to you how are you doing?
Heyyyyyyy. I’m doing great! working on a lot of cool things. Excited that the EP is finally out. 🙂
What was the process to get your new ep all together?
I’ve been writing for this EP for about 2 years. After gathering about 40 or so songs, my manager and I sat down and chose the 4 that we thought really represented who I want to be as an artist. The kind of music I want to make. We recorded the EP in Brooklyn with Rob Guariglia. It was 8 hours days, 4 days a week for about 2 months straight. it was awesome.
How has the reaction of your EP been? Is it what you expect or better?
It’s been really great. It was exactly what I expected. A lot of people really don’t know who I am yet, but this record definitely allowed me to get to the next stage of my career. Really pleased with the response.
We see you have a few shows coming up, what are you looking forward to the most?
I’m looking forward to playing out, and getting myself in front of people and singing from my heart.
Have you had any weird or odd fan experiences?
Haha. Uh. No
Is there one thing that you have to bring with you when going away for shows? 
Not really. Just my guitar. I need that….
Being that you just released your EP can we expect an album next?
Probably another EP! I have no plans to record one yet, but I’m hoping soon.
What are the next things you will be working on being that you just finished your EP?
Playing more shows, working to get my music heard, writing. Everything. Everything that I was still doing before the ep was out…. 🙂
Thanks so much Alec for taking the time to chat with TeenInfoNet!

TI Exclusive: Interview With Jackson Harris — Read Here!!

F_Jackson-22 TeenInfoNet was lucky to have to opportunity to chat with Singer – Songwriter Jackson Harris. Jackson has a lot going on right now with his career. In early 2014 he released an album, “Sharks & Vampires” and now he is still making more music hoping to go on our again in the 2nd half of 2015. Read our exclusive interview with Jackson below!
Do you remember what song really pulled you towards pop music and an ambition for the music industry? 
I don’t think it was one specific song that drew me towards pop music or music in general, but growing up my mom always played the Beatles, Billy Joel and Queen. Music is my earliest memory.
What differences were there between touring with Cody Simpson, Cher Lloyd, Fifth Harmony, R5 and Before You Exit? 
I have been incredibly lucky to open and tour with some incredible artists and musicians. Each tour I learned more and more on how to interact with fans, build your live show and what it is like to be on the road. Before You Exit and R5 have great energy on stage and really rock out, Cher and Fifth Harmony are some killer singers and those ladies can dance! And lastly touring with Cody was like touring with a brother of mine. He’s a spectacular guitarist and I got to learn so much about playing stages over seas!
Where do you see your career taking you in the near future? Distant future?
 I want to continue to make more music that moves me. I want to start maybe directing and producing some of my music videos and films as well as touring during the 2nd half of 2015! And in the distant future I want to have an established songwriting company and a successful career in writing and performing music all over the world.
What is your method to writing music?
There is no method to the madness. Sometimes I sit down on the floor and grab a guitar and the song just comes out of me. Other times it happens in the studio working with other producers and trying to inspire each other. If I have a very strong lyric in mind I’ll try to find the right beat for it. I try my best to just be present and open to whatever strikes me. I just want to be free to be creative.
What/Where was your first live performance and how did you feel?
It wasn’t my first live performance but it was definitely life changing, and that was opening for Ryan Beatty in Red Bank NJ at the count Basie theater. There was over 1,500 people there and it just blew my mind.
If you could collaborate with anyone, who would it be? 
It’s incredibly difficult to choose just one. But it would be any of the following people: Kanye West,John Mayer,Mark Ronson, Gavin Degraw, Paul McCartney, Frank Ocean and many, many more.
What do you hope fans take out of your music?
That I’m a real person. And the stories I put in my songs are supposed to take you away for 3-5 minutes from whatever you’re doing in your life. I want people to not feel alone, and to know I’ve been there too. I’ve had my heart broken, I’ve failed, and I’m still here, still doing what I love to do.
