We had the good fortune of connecting with Alehn James and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Alehn, how has your work-life balance changed over time?
Balance is everything, for I find it essential to the fluidity of my existence. I’ve learned through my experience that everything needs time and attention, somethings more than others. I see my body as it’s own universe within a universe, in a constant push for equilibrium. To me Balance is a ingredient of love. I strive for balance in every aspect of my life including music. Music is one of the many things I love to bring balance to. It’s most definitely a key component in a creating a masterpiece.

“Balance is the key to a tasteful life “

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Creating is my art. I’ve been blessed with a gift to evoke empathy through singing , songwriting, acting , dancing and conscious storytelling. Creating is a form of therapy to me. I’m able to express different parts of me through these crafts. I see Everyday as a day to live and give. It’s all a learning experience. Doing what you love takes passion, drive, motivation and hard work. It’s never A easy ride, but worth the trip. Being unapologetic is on of the many things I’ve had to learn in doing music. It takes being authentic and true to put out something the people can feel. Breaking through that shell was one of the most challenging things in the journey of self. A word to the people …..

“You’re so beautiful, let us see you , no one else can be you“


Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
First stop is Break Room LA. Let’s break somethings first and unwind., Then perhaps a bit of hot yoga and wine, I didn’t meant to rhyme.

(Hot 8 Yoga )is definitely a vibe!

Let’s take it up in elevation to the peak of mt Wilson in Sierra Madre A very in mountain experience. If you’re up for and true adventure this is your place!

Great for finding that meditation space

If you want a view but in the city check out spire 73, it’s super litty!
