🎺🙏🏽🏋️‍♀️ #2018 was a year of major #changes for us, when we finally broke out of our funk and into some #FUNK. Among many great moments, we: • 🎤 Released our first #newrecording in years, a Nick Hakim cover with @mellowmush. And #selfproduced at that! • 🎻 Recorded #trombone, #saxophone, #trumpet, and nearly all the #vocal parts for our long-overdue #progmetal album, due in 2019! • 📺 Released our first-ever #musicvideo with @_blackgoldphotos_ . • 🌎 Returned to the stage in a BIG WAY for the 710 Information Sesh in Boston, MA, in partnership with an all-star ensemble that also featured @itzdare, @mellowmush, and Brendan Nichols. • 🇺🇸🇵🇷🇧🇷 Serenaded our friends with beautiful music/música from all over the world in the comfort of our own home. • 💥 Our first (of many) #collaboration with @pedrocanasmusic, the beautiful melancholy “That’s My Fault”. • 🌓 Released our FIRST #ORIGINALSONG since our debut EP in 2013, “Cheers,” also featuring an ensemble of #localartists including @saxofshaolin and @majorminor7. • ✌🏽👍🏿👊🏻🤟🏾 Recorded a #livealbum & music video in a basement with 7 other #NYCartists, including @urbansmusic , @_allysonmariah, and James Jones. • 🐱 The cat’s out of the bag at this point. This was an inspiring and crucial year for us, when we rediscovered our power to make music and art and elevate our #community all around us. This only happened because of our support from each of you. Whether big or small, you all made your impact and helped us keep pushing forward. 2019 ain’t got nothing on me. Catch you all soon. — Love, Alexander • #dope #love #vibes #guitar #rock #hiphop #jazz #soulofnewyork #multicultureclub #buildingupthecity #emergingartists #deathisabusiness

🎸🔥🎷We’ll do our sappy end-of-year rant next week. What matters for now is we recorded a DOPE track with @dj_jazzyjohn just before he went to Mongolia for the winter (yeah, the country in Asia!).
