Here's a video for an older tune of mine called "Sixteen Voices," shot, directed, and edited by the talented Wyatt Olney.
From the Pacific Northwest to New Orleans—Tennessee to the Texas hill country—singer, songwriter, novelist, and poet Alex Rasmussen has spent much of the last several years traveling the United States and sharing his music: a unique blend of folk and rock fueled by the adventures and heartaches of a nomadic spirit. After spending fall and winter of 2020 / 2021 playing the streets and outdoor music venues of San Diego, the Seattle native has returned home for the remainder of the year, where he is putting the finishing touches on his second novel, gigging with the band, and working on new songs.
His latest musical release, Make it Real, is a five-song EP recorded in Los Angeles by Grammy-winning producer / engineer Sheldon Gomberg (Ben Harper, Peter Case). The tracks feature a skilled cast of LA studio musicians, including Sara Watkins of Nickel Creek, who contributed violin and vocal harmonies to "Make a Living" and "Back to Nashville." Make it Real is now available in the "music" section of this site and on all streaming services.
Alex's novel, Coloring outside the Lines—based on experiences collected while street-performing between Seattle and San Francisco—is available here: https://www.amazon.com/Coloring-Outside-Lines-Alex-Rasmussen/dp/1519624735
His poetry collection, Inside out, can be found here: https://www.amazon.com/Inside-out-Alex-Rasmussen/dp/1790828384/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1548871756&sr=8-1&keywords=inside+out+alex+rasmussen
