Interview with Alex Grant, SoHa Musician

Image
SoHa Happenings Contributing Editor Lisa Hardman recently attended a performance bySoHa Musician Alex Grant at the Mercury Café, and spoke with him a few days later.  Here’s what she learned… Nine years ago, Alex Grant and his wife, Suzi, were living in Phoenix, AZ when they decided they needed a change. “I really thought she’d never want to leave,” Alex said. “But we were sitting in the backyard one day and we just kind of said, ‘Let’s go to Colorado!’ So we flew up here for four days and drove all over the state, fell in love with it and came back, put our house on the market and neither one of us had jobs. We just figured we’d make it happen.”

Documentary by SoHa Producer Promotes JeffCo Outdoor Ed Lab

Image
Kudos to Alex Grant, Producer and Musician, and the entire staff and crew who worked on a documentary about the Jefferson County Outdoor Education Lab Program... "I just finished work on a documentary about an outdoor education laboratory school in Colorado, similar to other programs both in this country and around the world. This program, like many, is on the chopping block, but has already rallied enough support for one more year. Kudos to them! Would love to hear your thoughts alex@alexgrant.com."
