nfluenced by the music of Jimi Hendrix, Wes Montgomery, and Jimmy Page, among many others, Polaris studied contemporary guitar with some of the best musicians in the field: Alex Skolnick (Testament, TSO, Alex Skolnick Trio) and Jon Damian (The Boston Pops Orchestra, The Boston Symphony Orchestra).

In 2002, after graduating from the world-renowned Berklee College of Music, Polaris moved to New York City to begin his studies in composition with Justin Dello Joio at the New York University, and subsequently received a Masters degree in Music Composition and Theory.

In New York, Alex also began working with a rock group Man on Earth. Produced by Grammy-winning engineer/producer Ken Lewis (Lenny Kravitz, Beastie Boys, Fall Out Boy, Kanye West), Polaris recorded 3 albums with the band, culminating with the critically acclaimed “Time Spent Wondering” in 2008. The album contains guest appearances by the legendary Dr. Fink, keyboardist of Prince & The Revolution as well as Stephen Pearcy, the voice of the mega-platinum arena rock band RATT.
