Freshman Alexa Perez (or alexamarie on SoundCloud) has become very popular after her latest song release, “Not the Same” featuring senior Austin Shea (also known as Describer). Perez said she’s been interested in music since age six considering her family’s musical background. After her first appearance in Shea’s new single, she stated that she’s been working on a lot of new songs that will be released on her SoundCloud – with recording and production help from Shea himself.

“Working with Austin was a very nice experience. At first, I was really nervous because I’m only a freshman and he’s a senior; I barely knew him,” Perez stated, “He was super nice, though, and I’m glad he believes in me as much as he does. I would definitely work on new music with him again.”

Alexa Perez’s biggest inspiration (music-wise) is SZA because she’s “in love with her voice and everything she stands for; she’s just an amazing artist overall.” Perez hopes that music will be a part of her future career. “I know that it’s really hard to get into, but if someone gave me the opportunity, I’d definitely go for it,” she said.
