Biography

Alex Suarez is the bass player and additional keyboardist and vocalist for Cobra Starship as well as co-founder of This Is Ivy League, a band created with fellow Cobra Starship member and high school best friend Ryland Blackinton.

Alex was born in Stamford, Connecticut but moved to Boca Raton, Florida when he was young. Alex was heavily influenced by his older brothers who were into 80’s hair metal and grew up listening to bands from Metallica to Iron Maiden, which inspired him to start playing guitar. During his final years of high school, Alex provided vocals, drums, and guitar for popular local band Kite Flying Society, who released a discography CD on indie label Init Records. He attended Olympic Heights Community High School where he met friend Ryland Blackinton in 1997, bonding over the fact they were both avid guitar players and both played in local bands with varying degrees of accolade. Alex got Ryland a job waiting tables at “Mr. Deli’s Jewish Delicatessan,” in Boca Raton. A few years later, Alex went off to pursue a degree in the culinary arts while Ryland procured his BFA in Acting. The two lost touch for seven years.

Alex chose to bank on a future as a chef. His interest in the kitchen took root his freshman year when he had the choice between registering for either Food Production or Sewing. He chose the former and became instantly hooked, sticking with it all four years of high school and capitalized on the school’s work program, which allowed students to work in their chosen field in exchange for class credit.
