ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Piano Is Not My Forte" is Alex Mika's first full-length album, and features all original comedic lyrics about a variety of topics, from learning to play piano, to family game nights, to a look at the United States' uniqueness. The songs are lovingly taken from his first comedy show of the same name, which was performed when Alex was seventeen (not so long ago, he's eighteen now). The album features songs like:

"Ode to Piano" examines his relationship with the piano. As he grew, his appreciation and abilities to play grew, as well: "I started to play piano at the age of five, but I didn't practice so I sucked."

"Guitar Lessons" would be one of Alex's favorites if the truth didn't hurt so much. After trying to learn to play guitar for years, Alex finally gave up, learned the chords he could, and wrote this little ditty about the death of his dreams. During the performance, Alex told his audience, "So what do you do when you're a sad boy musician? You write a song about it and play it for people that paid to see you, instead of paying to see someone about it."

"Working on Working Out" chronicles the process of planning or summer "gains." Unfortunately, however, "In the blink of an eye, half the summer goes by. I didn't have time to do all that I planned to do."

"Everything About Us." Complimenting people is so hard sometimes. We’re constantly in a moral struggle with ourselves, you know? Do we be honest, do we be nice? How do we do both? Like how do you tell someone that they have a drinking problem, but that their personality is so much better when they’re drunk? So, for my next song, he tried to do both. This song is dedicated to all the lovers out there. He'd like to also apologize to all lovers for writing it.

...and many others!
