We had the good fortune of connecting with Alec Cabrera and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Alec, what do you want your legacy to be?
If I died today. I would want my legacy to be that I did what I loved and I did it well. I like to think that people would be able to hear that in the music I’ve created and been a part of!
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m a drummer in Austin, Tx. I have my band, Corbella, check us out. I also record for artist around the world in studios and my own personal home studio. When I started down this path I was completely lost and unsure of my next steps. I learned to trust myself and those next steps started coming a lot easier. Of any lessons I’ve learned the most important is that there is always another lesson around the corner. Also don’t let the bass player drink too much at the show. The only thing that people need to know about my brands and the ones I’m associated with is that it’s all love.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Whenever my friends come to visit me I always take them to Buzzmill on Riverside. Great (cheap) drinks, food and all around good vibes. Absolutely have to hit some water and trails on the greenbelt. There are so many good spots! One of my favorite place to go is the Austin Bouldering Project. Always fun to climb and wear yourself out with friends. Also a great first date. I always take my Dad and Uncles to all the breweries in town too! There are so many of them and a lot of them are walking distance of each other. Lazarus Brewing is one of my favorites!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I wouldn’t be where I am today in music and life without my father. He raised me by himself and always pushed me to be better. My close friends are much the same, in that, they always push me to pursue growth.
