Tony Aleman left his undeniable imprint on Norco Music history, not only because he was featured on the first album, Take Me There, but because he holds mixing and mastering credits for Falling Awake, NM's second release which made its way to the Grammy nomination ballot. In addition, Tony was the first student to ever receive the "Best In Class" award from his instructor, Brady Kerr, in Pro Tools. Tony's keen ear, attention to detail, and boundless creativity have furthered his career; he has become a YouTube sensation with his very popular channel, Instalok, which contains music videos for the video game League Of Legends. Instalok (which includes former NM students, Chris Aguirre and Patrick Boyle) has 1.3 million subscribers, and millions-upon-millions of video views.
