Studio & Touring Drummer
Alex Johnson is a session and touring drummer based out of Denver, Colorado. Whether in the studio or on the stage, Alex applies his incredible feel and expertise to hundreds of sessions and live performances across the country each year. Working out of his own remote studio at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Alex has been called by many Grammy award-winning or nominated producers and artists, and has also performed live and/or recorded with members of Widespread Panic, Greensky Bluegrass, Reckless Kelly, Sound Tribe Sector Nine, Scars on 45, and Railroad Earth, among many others.
“I was blown away when I first got my hands on a pair of V4s, and even further impressed when recording with V13s on overheads, and a V4 on kick. The depth, clarity, richness, and all around fantastic vibe of each Vanguard mic is inspiring to say the least. When recording yourself, it’s reassuring to know that my kit is being captured with such true tone and detail, and it’s further confirmation when engineers and producers are always asking me about them too. What’s not to love?! Vanguard is crafting original, unique, handmade microphones that sound incredible, and that’s very inspiring.”
