Alex Thrift was born a long time ago in Terre Haute, IN. After moving to Georgia, he began playing guitar and performing in bands spanning the spectrum of genres: goth, punk, even irish folk music. With Jane’s Addiction and Afghan Whigs as influences, he paid his dues and became heavily involved in the Atlanta music scene. After a long hiatus, Alex formed Rumours in the summer of 2014 as a means to spend more time cooking and drinking red wine. Rumours has taken Alex as far as Daryl’s House in Pawling NY and Disney World… and he’s loving every minute of it. He also enjoys spending time with his daughters, cooking, and collecting vinyl.
