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 decade 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 music venues of San Diego, the Seattle native has returned home for '22 to publish his second novel, perform, and work on new music.

His latest EP, Make it Real, consists of five songs recorded in Los Angeles by Grammy-winning producer / engineer Sheldon Gomberg (Ben Harper, Lucinda Williams). 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:
