About BEREL ALEXANDER
Raised on the redwood coast of rural northern California, Berel Alexander began singing professionally at the age of nine, discovering the magic of the microphone and the vibe of the vocal booth. Nurtured by a schoolteacher father and a poet mother, Berel started playing guitar at age eleven and soon after was writing wits own songs. He sang his way through high school and in his early twenties studied music and cultivated a one-of-a-kind sound, both hip and heartfelt.
Always centered in the positive, the music of the Berel Alexander Ensemble resonates with people young and old who share a vision of hope and love.
In their 2009 debut album, “Hooked” the B.A.E. delivers a dozen finely crafted songs that blur the boundaries between folk, soul, reggae, and jazz. “Hooked” has a 1970s throwback feel; a nuanced, organic sound with sophisticated arrangements and silken, seemingly effortless vocals.
Berel Alexander is a musical storyteller who takes you to a place of dreams and self-discovery, blending insightful social commentary, rootsy humor, and endearing romantic tenderness.
His lyrics make intelligent writing sound cool. His melodies linger on the edge of your memory.
A quote from one of his mentors, 1960s counter-culture icon Wavy Gravy reads:
"Berel's music is as sweet and smooth as the perfect milkshake, with a splash of Red Bull."
