Fight Friendly

 

With the hopes of prolonging a surreal existence, songwriter Alex McCoy relocated from South Carolina’s piedmont to the eerie streets of East Hollywood. The motive: create an indie ensemble based off of his motto, “no genres”. From a youth of mainstream country, to an adolescence of alternative, from a teenage obsession of hip-hop to college days of trading bootleg jamband shows, McCoy pays diverse homage to the many influences that inspire his eclectic creations.
