Alex started playing guitar and singing at age 7. Influenced by his brother, who opened him the doors to all kinds of music. After playing with several local outfits in Barcelona, an 18 year old Alex joined harp bluesman Hook Herrera (Govt Mule, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Kid Ramos, Denny Freeman)Hook was Alexs first mentor and also introduced him to the start of a music career by teaching him how to understand the music, specially the blues, and opening the doors into the profesional bussiness. With Hook Alex had the chance to play in the best festivals and clubs all over Europe. Three years later he formed his own band Alex TNT, and got a residence in La Boite, a prominent Barcelona music club, as well as playing in other clubs and festivals in the Barcelona area. As Alex TNT, he has released 3 albums, Walking your way (Discmedi, 2001), I feel the blues again (Mas i Mas, 2003) and Alex TNT (Gaztaluzpeko, 2009) all on which he explored different facets of the Blues exclusively.He later joined African bassist/vocalist Steve de Swardts blues band, where he met a key influence in his career, string master Javier Mas (Leonard Cohen, M del Mar Bonet, etc). He shared countless nights onstage playing together with them and St. Louis drummer Julian Vaughn (Albert King, B. B. King, Johnny Copeland) at the Jamboree Jazz club in Barcelona. During this time he toured in Canada and the US with a couple of Chicago artists and later with his own band. In November of 2006, Alex had the privilege to open for the King of Blues B. B. King at the Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis. After many years on the circuit and being known as Alex TNT, he decides to ultimately shift his artistic identity to ZAYAS / Alex Zayas for the occasion of the release of his fourth album Guitarshock (Mitik, 2012), where he underwent a deep self exploration to find a new path through which to forge all of his past and present influences. Alex Zayas has also played with artists such as Larry McCray, Johnny B Gayden,
