American drummer, writer, director, and film producer, also known as Orbi. Alex Orbison is president of Still Working Music Group, a publishing company and president and co-founder of Roy's Boys LLC, through which Roy Orbison's legacy is managed alongside his brothers, Roy Jr., and Wesley Orbison.

Orbi is the youngest son of legendary rock and roll songwriter Roy Orbison and Barbara Orbison. He is their second born child, following Roy Kelton Orbison, Jr, and he has an older half-brother, Wesley Orbison. They lived on Old Hickory Lake, next door to his god-parents Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash in Hendersonville, Tennessee. Growing up in a musical household, Orbi's first instrument was violin, as his hands were too small for the guitar, followed by guitar and piano before landing on drums. Roy moved his family to Malibu, California in 1985. Malibu provided much needed support to Orbi when his father died in 1988. Roy was 52 years old, Alex was only 13.

Following the death of his mother in 2011, Alex moved back to Nashville, Tennessee, where he currently lives with his wife, Erika Wolf Orbison, and two dogs.

In the early 1990s, Orbi made friends with Jerry Lynn Williams' son Chris Williams, co-founding a band called Backbone69. Guitarist-vocalist Williams and drummer Orbi's Backbone69 later included guitarist Duane Betts, son of the Allman Brothers' Dickey Betts, and bass player Berry Oakley Jr., son of Allman Brothers bassist Berry Oakley.
