RIPDAYDREAM: I want to start by saying you have such a cool artist name. I have heard some of the most elaborate artist names you could think of, but something about yours has a nice ring to it. Talk more about how you landed on Alexander Galore and the backstory behind it.


Alexander Galore: We try so hard as creators to find a name that represents us and resonates with others. I got lucky that my purpose in life and in music is aligned with my given first name “Alexander”. Alexander historically means “defender of men” and “Galore” means abundance. I’ve realized in life there is so much that we never get to experience, appreciate, or recognize exists because we are stuck in scarcity in some way, shape, or form. For me, I believe that my purpose on Earth is to create in a way that provides access for my community and other people who are equally ambitious or dream as big as I have and do currently. We often look so far outside of ourselves in search of what we have already been given, and because we overlook the seeds planted in us we miss the harvest of everything we’ve ever wanted. So for me, the name “Alexander Galore” is a culmination of a lot, but to sum it up, it represents my desire to help teach and lead people to the understanding that they are abundant by being themselves and also my commitment to defending people who haven’t yet learned how to protect themselves.

RIPDAYDREAM: Listening through your music I noticed you focus on R&B/Soul. What inspired you to explore this genre?


Alexander Galore: I grew up listening to John Legend, Anthony Hamilton, Bryan McKnight, and Alicia Keys. So much of the music that is at the roots of my creation is in the R&B genre. I believe it’s a specific type of art form that when done correctly can connect with and touch anyone’s soul who listens.



RIPDAYDREAM: Many artists have music as their sole talent or focus, but when delving into your entire background, it becomes apparent that you are involved in content creation, photography, modeling, and more. What drives you to be so connected to these forms of art?


Alexander Galore: Society teaches us that being single faceted brings more success, more accolades, and more fulfillment. From a very young age, I learned that I am a creator. Not of one thing but of many. I am inspired by the sunrise, by art, by a family in the park laughing, the lady on the internet crying and so much more. The world we live in lacks diversity of thought, not because it doesn’t exist but because we are scared to push against the grain. We fear being an outcast or being misunderstood, but the beauty is in everything you feel there are millions of people who think and feel exactly like you. I believe I have been given a gift to articulate those thoughts and feelings that are more common than we are led to believe. I believe it’s a part of my purpose to create in any way I feel inspired to continue to give representation and a voice to the person who feels unseen, or unheard by the world.

RIPDAYDREAM: Going off the last question, you are really in touch with growing as an artist, but also inspiring/helping those in your community to grow with you. Why is this important to you?


Alexander Galore: There are so many answers to this and I could talk on this topic for hours and hours if given the chance but I’ll be as brief as possible while still being authentic. Simply put I have seen the most talented and driven people lose faith in their dreams because they had no idea how to move forward, they had no support, and the people who could help them were gatekeeping information that would’ve transformed their lives, all based on the idea that if they help them for free they (the gatekeepers,) lose opportunities to be successful. Now imagine the opposite with me momentarily. Imagine if we shared industry secrets, gave guidance where we could, and poured positivity into people who were putting their everything into something important to them. What does our collective consciousness look like? What differences would we see in the way we interact collectively with the world especially in creative fields? How many fewer people get taken advantage of? We talk often about abundance but very few people actually live with the belief that there is always enough time, and opportunities to be successful. I believe we can all be successful and connected simultaneously. We can experience joy, love, monetary gain, and fulfillment without someone else suffering to do so.




RIPDAYDREAM: What would you like to share about yourself or your music that you think someone reading would like to know?


Alexander Galore: You matter, and the world needs whatever you feel connected to creating. Please don’t get discouraged because of the barriers of entrance to whatever your chosen path is. If you find yourself in need of support please ask, I am a DM away. You are only alone if you choose to be.

RIPDAYDREAM: What's next for you?


Alexander Galore: Consistency, creating sustainably, growing my audience, but if none of that happens I hope to love people completely and make the world a little better than I found it.
