Yeghikian
Yeghikian
Born in Hollywood, and raised in Glendale, he is a Los Angeles native through and through. Alexy Yeghikian has been musically inclined since he was a child. Lucky enough to have the support of his family, he pursued his musical dreams throughout his education.


After high school he attended one of the top art institutions in the world, California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) and excelled in his studies in guitar performance. During his time at CalArts, he studied under jazz giant Larry Koonse and world-renowned guitarist, Miroslav Tadic.


Having played guitar from such a young age, and studying under world-class performers, he is now a professional musician, doing session work and touring around the world.


He has performed and remains friends with musical icons such as Bobby Brown, De LA Soul, Monte Pittman (Madonna), Miguel, KRS-one, to name a few, and continued to be a vital part of A.L.O.C., The Booze Hounds, Pancho and Sancho, and numerous other acts.


On his down time he enjoys painting and illustrating, learning to play different instruments, and playing and watching soccer, his favorite sport since childhood. His favorite team is England’s Liverpool FC.


Alexy also enjoys attending live performances of his peers, and most importantly making music and sharing with his friends, family, and fans.


Yeghikian is Alexy’s first solo project and already has a major fan following. There are plans in the works for world domination. Bend to his will or die…

Blending a sweet mix of classic American and British infused rock, folk, and Eastern/Armenian tinges, The Dirty Diamond takes listeners on a colorful musical journey. Their soulful and melodic writing creates a vast space in the theater of the mind and heart.

A fixture on the Los Angeles rock scene, The Dirty Diamond has headlined at iconic venues such as The Troubadour, House of Blues, The Hotel Cafe, and The Viper Room. As an opening act, The Dirty Diamond recently performed at LA’s Greek Theatre.

Some of the band’s collaborations include recordings with pianist Tigran Hamasyan, vocalist Durga McBroom of Pink Floyd, and World Musician Arto Tucboycian.

DD band members, accomplished professionals in their own right, have toured and/or recorded with artists such as Shania Twain, Todd Rundgren, Macy Gray, Serj Tankian, Linda Perhacs, Mika, Keb' Mo, Mindi Abair, Florence + The Machine, James Blunt, Juanes, Andra Day, and more.
