Martinsville, VA | University of Virginia '16
Alex Spears is thrilled to return to Cape Cod for his third summer as a member of Hyannis Sound. He hails from the incredibly small town of Martinsville, VA, but the Cape has become a second home to him during summers. He is the business manager of the group for the second year running, and he believes that he has gotten the hang of the job as a result of trial by fire, and the support of the other nine guys.
Alex attended Carlisle School in Martinsville where he began singing in various musicals and talent shows spanning from 6th grade until graduation. After arriving at the University of Virginia in the fall of 2012, he joined Brandon Borror-Chappell as a member of the Hullabahoos, an all-male a cappella group that recently sang on “ESPN College Game Day.” Alex just graduated from the University of Virginia with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Commerce, with concentrations in Marketing and Management (WahooWa!). He will move to Boston in the fall to begin his career at Bain & Company, a strategy consulting firm.
Alex discovered Hyannis Sound when the group performed at a Carlisle School assembly when he was in 7th grade. His interest in auditioning for The Sound was peaked when he heard about how much fun it was from alumni. Thanks to former Hyannis Sound/Hullabahoos such as Brandon, Brendon Mason and Joe Whitney, Alex was urged to audition. He is happy to be from the “farm-team”, having made the familiar jump from Hullabahoos to Hyannis Sound. Alex is happy to welcome the newest farm-team recruit, Avi Montanez, into the Hyannis Sound family this summer!
Alex is incredibly thankful to all of his friends and family who have encouraged him and helped him to become the singer and person that he his today. He would like to extend a special thank you to his parents, his sister, his Hullabahoo family, his Hyannis Sound family, and the entire Cape Cod community for their constant outpouring of love and support.
