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. With hundreds of performances under his belt, and a million new experiences to mold into art, the Seattle native is now hunkering down in San Diego, where he is writing a second novel 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 at and on all streaming services. 

His novel, Coloring outside the Lines, and poetry collection, Inside out, are available at and
