Meet Soundpost: Alex Taphanel

Alex TaphanelIt takes a lot of personality to match up to our Emcee and we found it.  Musician Alex Taphanel came in to the first rehearsal having already composed the Juliet song and several other background pieces.  This kid has talent and drive!  When not composing for bar plays, Alex is also currently working on songs for an upcoming EP of original music while working as head barista at Cervantes Coffee in Springfield, VA, playing shows in the DMV area, and leading worship on Sundays at Harvester PCA in Springfield.   Busy guy!
