Berel Alexander is an Oakland-based Singer/Songwriter and high-energy front man raised in the rural northern coast of California. Only 28 years old, for the past 8 years he has been "layin' it down" traveling, performing, and tightening a potent 5-piece band, cultivating a sonically refreshing sound. Berel riffs the acoustic guitar with tuneful melodies, connecting people in all walks of life.  The ensemble features hypnotic keys and an electric cello spewing a slew of analog effects, all on top hearty drum & bass rhythm.  Driven by unique guitar work and a passion for soulful music of many genres, they enjoy mixing it up to create their own sounding blend of Blues, Soul, Latin, Jazz,  Hip- Hop, and Reggae. This feel good show is highlighted by thoughtful and stylish lyrics that seem to say, "hope still has a place in this crazy world".


Berel has played music all his life and written songs since he was a kid. Inspired early on by his father's vintage vinyl and collection of homemade mix tapes, he was brought up in a home where singing was always encouraged.   Motown classics add to his influence, as well as modern neo-soul the likes of D'angelo and live hip-hop a la The Roots.  Listeners at his live shows have often compared Berel to a combo of James Taylor, Jonny Lang, and Amos Lee.
Having been featured for multiple performances during the Sundance Film Festivals of '12, '13, and '14, they have also shared the bill with timeless performers like Matisyahu and G. Love & Special Sauce. Berel is constantly pushing himself. The band’s latest original EP, “All Over It” was released on Jan. 20th 2014.
