Guitarist, composer and producer Alexander Kronbrink was born in Stockholm, Sweden.
He tried his father’s acoustic guitar, always lying around in the house, at an early age and when he was nine he got his first guitar lesson.
Early on Alexander started taking his guitar some hundred meters down the road to visit his friend and neighbour Jonathan Fritzén who played keyboards and the piano. Together they had jam sessions fooling around with jazz harmonies and even trying out some of their own compositions.
Today Fritzén is a big star in the smooth jazz genre and has had several number 1-hits on the Billboard charts in the US. He also appears on all Sonic Station records. As does Alexander on Fritzén’s records!
Even though Alexander never stopped practising his guitar in the music room of the family’s villa, it wasn’t until his early 20’s he decided to dedicate himself completely to music.
After going into a variety of music genres in his teens it was when a friend of his fathers introduced him to the music of American guitarist Lee Ritenour, Alexander started to see a direction in his playing. Through Ritenour he discovered the music of such giants as Steely Dan, Kenny Loggins, composer och producer David Foster and guitarist Jay Graydon, to mention a few.
