Alexander Cardinale, also known as Xander, is an American singer/songwriter originally from Monterey Bay, California. His musical ability began at a young age when he learned to play the violin, but Xander’s real passion for songwriting came after his father bought him his first acoustic guitar. Shortly after moving to Los Angeles, Xander began collaborating with music producer Morgan Taylor Reid. His melancholy ballad “Sick of Dreaming,” one of many songs written with Reid, garnered attention after being featured on several network television shows.
