To celebrate its first album, Portland-based Indie band “Alexander Tragedy” will perform live at Doug Fir Lounge on July 27th at 9 p.m. The band features Caleb Roloff on guitar and lead vocals, Wylie Foster on drums, Nathan Trueb on lead guitar, Tim Karplus on keys and Brian Powell on bass.
Local music production company 65M, LLC produced the debut record. Co-producer Peter Bunch says the record spotlights twelve unique songs. “Each song reflects the conflict between decadence, depression, hope, despair, anxiety, and redemption,” said Bunch. “The goal was to capture Caleb’s acerbic wit and somewhat jaundiced view of the world.”
A number of celebrated musicians contributed to the melody driven work of the CD. “Other players on the album include bassist Federic Pol, drummer Kenny Aronoff and Fleetwood Mac keyboard master Brett Tuggle,” added Jason Snell, 65M partner and co-producer. “Every member of Alexander Tragedy is creative individually, together producing a unique sound to the vibrant Portland music scene.”
The band is currently being shopped at major labels and prominent indie distributors. Both producers anticipate recording executives to be in attendance at the release party. Part of that is the result of relationships Bunch developed while working for years in LA with several acclaimed artists, musicians, engineers and producers. Bunch said, “These execs would not be coming up here to see Alexander Tragedy if they weren’t intrigued by some of the early tracks released to them.”
