Alex Grube is counted as one of today’s most sought-after live
and session bassists. After finishing his studies at the reputable
Popakademie (Mannheim, Germany) Grube moved to Hamburg
to pursue his music career in the studio scene. He quickly gained a
reputation as a first-call bassist of the finest caliber.

Franz Plasa (Mariah Carey, Nena, Selig) about Grube:
„Incredible timing, unmatched musicality, and powers
of comprehension that could make me go green with envy!“

Frank Peterson (Sarah Brightman, Enigma, Gregorian):
„I have worked with Nathan East, Tony Levin, and Pino
Palladino and can say that Alex absolutely plays in the
same league. His sound is just perfect for all the musical
styles that I play – and there are many!“

His musical range reflects a fine-turned and passionate musical
sensibility that extends across genres. In a journal interview with
„Guitar&Bass,” Alex is quoted: „On one hand there is
this palm-mute-thing that I do for very laid-back soul-grooves
and on the other there are the eighth-notes when I have my
bass hang really low, a little overdrive, take my pick and off I go.“

2008/09 Grube did a nine-month long world-tour with Sarah
Brightman, the best selling soprano of all times, and played
in legendary venues like the Budokan (Tokio) and Madison
Square Garden (New York).
