BIO

For the teen-aged Glenn E. Alexander, guitar was an addiction quickly adopted. A largely self-taught approach to his craft was taken, pursuing his idea of music with sharply focused curiosity and a whimsical persistence both unencumbered and influenced by mainstream musical ideals. Impacted by a generous swath of America's rich musical history, he explored a mesh of looped composition and improvisation rooted around his Martin acoustic. Early homemade recordings of these explorations became the bedrock for Brave Julius, his first foray into collaborative and studio work, which fleshes out his compositions in clever and often startling ways (see The Canyon, 2010 & Brave Julius [EP], 2012).

The live show is effect & loop-enhanced instrumental hypnosis, as well as straight-ahead neo-classical guitar workouts. Folding in elements of folk/bluegrass, prog-rock, classical, and indie rock, Brave Julius' music manages a singular, conscious thread. The gigs are an of-the-moment experience, rooted in years of crafting music for the soundtrack of your life, wherever you may be.
