Mount Vernon, New Hampshire native Alex Preston was a finalist on the thirteen season of American Idol. He's gone on to write and collaborate with some of today's popular music stars. Alex got some new recording equipment and made this really cool version of the Taylor Swift song Blank Space while trying it out!

Not only is Alex a singer and songwriter, he also plays instruments. Lots of them. In fact, he plays at least 11 different instruments other than guitar! That's pretty impressive. Alex is also known for putting his own twist on some modern pop songs. Check out this version of Blank Space. The latest hit from Taylor Swift.

Alex recently played a show for us in Portland at The State Theater Click here to see some pics from the concert.
