In 2008, Alma Desnuda became a musical project— three best friends pouring their hearts out on stage at an open mic in Berkeley. The community rallied around us, giving their love and support, encouraging us to keep going. We made a recording of three songs with Tony on the upright bass. Wide eyed and bushy tailed, the four charged forward.
By 2012 we had achieved notable success. With multiple albums under our belt, we toured near and far with the reputation of one of the top bands in the Bay Area. But despite the success we had achieved, it still felt as though we were chasing an elusive dream. We reaffirmed that our success would not be measured by money alone, even though money was the symbol of a more prosperous life. We grounded once again in our mission to awaken souls and bring people into connection with their inner sense of self. It was a fearful time of self-doubt and resentment. It was a time of healing, of shedding layers of ego and self.
In 2013, when things finally felt that they were back on track, our founding member Paul abruptly left the band the night we recorded a live album in Berkeley. The initial shock was painful, but quickly the pain was tempered by faith and trust in our mission. Robin entered the picture. The future took new form. Our sound matured. Our resolve turned to steel.
The Make Moves (featuring Berel Alexander)
Berel Alexander, 28, is an Oakland-based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. With a passion for soulful music of almost every genre, he enjoys mixing flavors of music of all kinds to create his own original blend of feel good vibrations. His upcoming EP of original songs, complete with an 8-piece backing band is set for release this fall, as well as collaborations with DJs and producers around California.
This eight-piece ensemble features a robust horn section that hugs the listener and drums that drive like a Harley Davidson. Founded by musicians from Berkeley, California, Brass Magic developed and honed their sound in the clubs and parks of New York City. Influenced by the garbage of Manhattan, the F train, and strong beverages, the band focuses on original compositions and synthesizes styles from around the world into a new sound.
