Born in the beautiful Mexican city of Puerto Vallarta, Alejandro Amézquita became a guitarist at a young age.

Soon after his career took off and currently, Alejandro shares the stage with internationally known pop artists while laying down creative guitar parts in studio sessions. He first picked up the guitar at the age of 12, becoming instantly fascinated by the instrument. At 16, he began performing live at local venues. Deciding he needed more at age 19, Amezquita uprooted his life and moved to LA to pursue his dream.


The Mexican artist studied at the Musicians Institute Hollywood for two and a half years. Here, he began establishing himself as a session musician, songwriter, and music director.


Over the years, he’s put together an impressive resume of collaborators. In January 2021 he played at The Rose Parade’s New Year Celebration, performing with Grammy nominated artist Mickey Guyton at California’s Rose Bowl Stadium. This was a televised event, streamed live across NBC, ABC, Hallmark Channel, KTLA, Univision and RFD-TV, featuring big names such as Tori Kelly and Sheryl Crow. He also has regular writing sessions with renowned musician Randy Jackson, who’s played with many big names such as Journey, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen and Mariah Carey. These collaborative songs are pitched to artists as well as for movie and TV placements.

Amézquita recorded guitars for American Idol Season 13 contestant Brian King Joseph for his unreleased music. He also records for and writes with Joe Hellow—who was previously Post Malone’s live sound engineer—and plays live for the artists Hellow records. Alejandro has worked with Latin Grammy winner and ex-member of Latin pop group Los Fantasmas del Caribe, Adrian Pieragostino. Adrian is acclaimed in his own right, collaborating with the likes of Luis Miguel, Cristian Castro and Marco Antonio Solís.

His talents took him to become the music director and guitarist for artists MAXX and Valentina Mami; working on his primary goal of bringing an artist’s musical vision to life and telling their stories through an immersive, live concert setting.
