ALEXAND, consists of the two Miyazawa. Started their full-scale activity in spring of 2008.
They started to look for members and participated in the 125th Anniversary Memory Contest of GRETSCH, a musical instrument company in U.S. ALEXAND entered their song "Sincere" in The Next Gretsch Greats Unsigned Artist Competition. Out of more than 850 unsigned and independent artists from seven countries (U.S., U.K., Japan, Canada, Germany, France and Spain) who entered the contest, ALEXAND made it to the top 10 finalist. They were not selected as a prize winner but, a very heart warming letter from Mr.Fred Gretsch received. For ALEXAND, the contest was truly quite an honor and a great experienced that helped them gain confidence to continue their love for creating music and arrangement with their hearts.
