    Daria ~ All Your Shows Are Fabulous…..But, This By Far Was My Absolute Favorite :-)

    Alexa ~ You Are Absolutely Brilliant. Amazingly Talented & So Incredibly Beautiful! Your Music “Your Magic” .....Is Fantastic

    It’s Funny, We Just Watched “Billy Joel At Yankee Standium” Within The Last Month (I Haven’t Seen It In Years).....As I Listened To You, Today ~ I Was Remembering You In That Video. Mommy Dressing You Up For Daddy (Sooo Precious). They Did An Amazing Job. You Are So Grounded & Have Such A Great Outlook. Very, Very Special.

    Congratulations & Only Wish You The Best Life Has To Bring You :-)

    I saw Alexa in an outdoor show last summer in Syracuse.
    She was wonderful, beautiful, TINY and put on a great show. Eddie Money performed after her and she was on the side of the stage dancing and enjoying his concert as well. It was great to see because you would expect that once she is done with a show she would just want to take off. And it rained the whole time! The crowd had a great time despite the rain- thanks to great performers! Really enjoyed the podcast, Thanks!

    Thanks everyone! I’m so glad that so many people are downloading and listening to the show with Alexa. Here’s a few quotes from our interview that I thought we fun to share:

    In our interview Alexa shares what her parents were like while she was growing up:

    “I grew up with the two of them. Hearing them do sing-alongs, and they would always sing me to sleep. So music and art and appreciation for the arts, I was constantly surrounded by that growing up.”

    When asked if it was difficult to have famous parents and to be known as Alexa Ray Joel she said:

    “No, I don’t think it’s hard. I have a very good relationship with my parents. They’re great parents you know. So far be it for me to not pay tribute to them and talk about them because it is an interesting story. And I understand why people are curious.”

    Alexa shares her definition of what her fashion and personal style is, as well as a desire to model of Lancome someday in the future. When asked what her tip is for creating a great look she said:

    “I think it’s all about finding the look and going for it!”

    Alexa talks to Daria about finding her own identity, and how even when we separate ourselves from our parents all of us still can end up very much like them:

    “I’ve become kind of a health nut lately. And you know I won’t eat fried food. Every now and then, like yesterday I went out for mexican but for the most part I’m very very healthy. I find myself giving people a hard time like “that’s high cholesterol” and then I think “oh my god, I’m turning into my Mom!” (giggle) it sounds like exactly what she would say. Ya, the older I get the more she definitely rubs off on me, it’s very funny.”

    Be sure to listen to the whole podcast!

    Loved the show! Alexa’s music is fantastic and the interview was a GREAT listen. I couldn’t believe how normal and grounded Alexa sounds, having such famous parents. I really hope we see and hear much more from her in the future.

    The show was amazing and showed what a beautifully talented young lady Alexa is – well grounded, down to earth and what we like to see in artists today. Alexa, who grew up in a celebrity household, sets the bar for others – working her way up taking the hard road! She is a star in her own right and yet so sweet. Looking forward to more music from this very talented girl. Way to go Alexa :)

    I REALLY enjoyed this podcast. Alexa’s music is so upbeat. We are in the process of moving out of state & with 4 kids, I have a great deal of packing to do. The interview with Alexa was so interesting, I pack TEN boxes in an hour! The music kept me going as well.
    Thanks again & back to packing!
