Musician Alexander Vlachos, professionally known as Greater Alexander, aims to bring more established artists to Detroit with a career driven, sober artist residency program.

Picture a quiet desolate street where there is one house with lights on, waiting patiently to be nurtured with the power of music...

When producer and composer Alexander Vlachos (Greater Alexander) experienced suicidal thoughts because of his depression, he says creating his music saved his life. Paying it forward, he rescued an abandoned house blocks from the Motown Museum in Detroit, to make it an artists’ residency and creative hub for established musicians and artists to flourish physically and mentally.“Our unique goal for Greater Impact House is to provide a space free of the influence from vices like alcohol, cannabis, gaming, gambling and more, so artists have a cathartic experience with their authentic selves while creating their art,” said Vlachos.”
