Bright Brown is sonic cinema. Bittersweet layers and textures abound, and beautifully crafted songs exist at the core. Alex Nahas’ songwriting boldly chooses to sit “between the meager and the mundane” elevating the everyday. He generates a broad sonic palette on the rarely seen, Chapman Stick and along with Nick Smeraski on drums, they’ve wowed audiences with their explosive duo performances.
Originally hailing from San Francisco where he formed the critically acclaimed art rock ensemble, Laughingstock, Nahas has collaborated in the studio and on the road with John Vanderslice, Zoe Keating, DJ Shadow, Mates of State, and Jill Tracy amongst other artful denizens of the SF music scene. He’s also shared the stage with the likes of Death Cab For Cutie, Richard Buckner, Spoon, Frank Black, and Robin Guthrie of The Cocteau Twins.
Latest album, Where The Ocean Once Was, is out now.
