Alzara & Brother Spellbinder / Bio

"Raw plaintive lamentations. Her soul the strummer, Her heart the drummer. Now the Lady, now the Vamp. Preying on Men, praying for man. The Moon Goddess giveth, the Melancholy Mistress taketh away. Let there be light." ~ Beau Lebette

The best music defies definition and Alzara & Brother Spellbinder consider themselves no exception. They create music that is otherworldly with an old world ache, yet earthy and tangible with a hint of folk. The daughter of Dave Getz, longtime drummer for Big Brother and the Holding Co., Alzara grew up in a rock-n-roll scene, acquiring a taste for the spotlight and a love of lost souls living in the fringes between the sublime and disintegration. She formed recent group Brother Spellbinder with guitarist Jamie Wilson. Steeped in deep roots & fried in folk, guitarist, dedicated fisher & caver Wilson mixes in a dollop of gristle & a spoonful of sugar. Dale Carlson joined the brigade in late 2013 and adds her super sonic skills in Sax, flute, harmonica, and penny whistle. A musical savant, she also happens to be Albino and transgender, and never settles for the mundane. Additional rotating members include the blithe fingered Harpist Eri, grammy nominated fiddler Cal Keaoola, and bassist Jeremy Nelson.

Tracks Golden Gate, Junkyard & Roli-olio by The Sugarplums. Born from a serendipitous love affair, Getz and her former partner McWilliams take you on both a powerfully psychedelic ride and a familiar stroll down memory lane, all while keeping a handcrafted musical integrity that is hard to come by. Dorothy's Melting is from a new release by Recharge Melting and is a reboot/remix of a blast from the past (more at rechargemelting.com)
