Festival After Dark - Greenzones | Park City Television

Interview we did with Park City Television on our last night performing at Sundance 2014 (skip to 4:17 in this video to catch a glimpse).  We were stoked to participate and support the non-profit Greenzones at this show at Cicero’s in Park City. 

Thanks to Aaron and Jay for the interview and live footage!  Such a great night! 

Performing is most uplifting in a chill venue with great sound and that is the experience over at the HP Live Lounge at the Sundance Film Festival 2014.  I always get really into our performances there cause the crowd is always receptive and the art comes easier.  It’s a great ambiance to do what we love to do which is rock the house, with a wonderwoman sighting to boot..

Berel’s Bio

Berel Alexander, 28, is an Oakland-based Singer/Songwriter and high-energy front man raised in the rural northern coast of California. Over the past 8 years he has been performing with a potent 5-piece band of drums, bass, keyboards, and cello, with Berel himself on lead vocals and acoustic guitar.

With a passion for soulful music of many genres, he enjoys mixing it up to create his own sound, highlighted by his feel good, thoughtful, and affecting lyrics. The band explores aspects of  Blues, Soul, Latin, Jazz,  Hip- Hop, and Reggae, while Berel’s stylish lyrics seem to imply that hope still has a place in this crazy world.

The band’s forthcoming EP of original songs, “All Over It” is set for release on Jan. 20th 2014. The singer/songwriter collaborates with producers around California and has plans to release a number of soon-to-be buzzing projects this year.  All this and more are set to drop via his Soundcloud and YouTube pages,  and thru his website www.berelalexander.com.
