A Face In The Crowd: Alec Bolton

A Face In The Crowd: Alec Bolton

If you’re here, you know what we’re plugged into. But we want to know what YOU have in the headphones! That’s why we’re introducing A Face in the Crowd. At any given time we may pull a perfect stranger out of the crowd and ask what you are listening to. We’ll even mix it up from time to time and pick the brains of some of your favorite musicians. For this edition of A Face in the Crowd, Mother Plug Music welcomes: Alec Bolton…

What is your name?

Alec Bolton


What is your occupation?

As of right now, I’m a musician. I play guitar and sing in an acoustic duo called The Brook and the Bluff. I also play lead guitar (and sometimes bass) with a couple of different groups from time to time.


Where are you from?

Mountain Brook, AL


Did you grow up in a musical family, with a musical background, or with a musical influence?

Yes, my family was pretty musical. My three sisters can all sing, but my dad can play just about any instrument. He taught me how to play drums, guitar, and piano when I was growing up. His dad is a jazz pianist and cello player, so it definitely runs in the family.
