Alex Aiono’s birth, age, childhood, and supportive parents
Alex Aiono or Martin Alexander Aiono is a Maori/Samoan-American singer and producer. He was born on 16th February 1996 in Phoenix, Arizona. There is a total of six members of his family, including his father and mother. His three sisters are Sidney, Taylor, and Hallie. His love for music dates from his childhood. Alex had said:
“Growing up, music was one of the biggest things my family bonded over, whether it was singing in church or just jamming out at home. Whatever the circumstances, my Pop always made it very easy for us to take on any instrument—we grew up with a piano in the house, guitars, drums, bass, ukulele, violins, everything; and it all just spoke to me. I was always trying new things and learning about theory, so when I pick up an instrument I have this understanding of how to use it.”
While in the first grade, Alex started taking piano and drum classes. He learned ukulele when he was 9 years old. He wrote a piano ballad ‘Always yours’ when he was 13 years old. In order to let Alex pursue his ambition and career in music, his family moved to LA and stayed in a one-room apartment.
The start of Alex Aiono’s career
He released his debut single ‘Doesn’t get Better’ in March 2013. Alex was just 15 years old when he took to busking at Santa Monica promenade and this is the place where he met his first manager. His manager’s friend heard him and helped him gain entry into the music industry.
He then released his debut EP called ‘Young and Foolish’ in mid-2013. It was co-written with John Legend. Remembering those days, Alex once said:
“I had always talked about how John Legend was one of my biggest influences, so my manager decided to set up a writing session, which was such an unforgettable experience for me. We actually wrote two songs and John’s belief in me was key in telling me that I’m on the right track.”
He toured the country for his EP’s promotion and also wrote songs and learned about music production. He released his album ‘Alexmas’ in 2015 with Apt. 203 Records. He experimented with live mashups and in 2016 created a mashup of Drake’s ‘One Dance’.

Universal Music Group’s Interscope Records signed Alex in early 2017 and Alex released his single ‘Work the Middle’ with this Company. Elaborating on this single, Alex said:
“For ‘Work the Middle,’ I wanted to find a way to bring in that dancehall vibe, where you can’t help but start movin’, but also keep the sound my own,”
His second single was released on April 2017. There is an upcoming album scheduled for a 2017 release.
Alex is also a hip-hop dancer and a boxer. He can play more than a dozen musical instruments. He is also an active social media user.

Alex Aiono new song
Alex recently released a new song titled ‘Big Mistake’ including the music video for the song. Later he has revealed that his song was inspired by a breakup.
He said about the track:
“I had a bad break up that inspired my writing the song, and it’s all about that emotional process. You get humbled, your heart hurts, and I wanted the ‘Big Mistake’ video to capture that frustration.”
“The straight jacket seemed like the perfect metaphor. I’m dancing, I’m kinda losing it, and I’m trying to get over her but I feel like I can’t get out…until I did.”
