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 '20 / '21 playing the streets and outdoor music venues of San Diego, the Seattle native has returned home, where he will remain through the summer of '22 to publish his second novel, perform, and work on new music.
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.
