My rock band, Ocelot Robot, finished our first music video! I hope you have as much fun watching it as we did making it.

Here are some reviews of “A Constant Drift In My Step” from iTunes. If you have the album and have enjoyed it please leave a review of it! I love hearing what you think of everything.
New Alder EP delivers
The long-awaited follow up to his stellar "Long Way Down album", this record presents a more intimate and exposed side of Alder. However, woven within the sonic fabric of the stripped down acoustic guitars and breathy vocals, there are some beautiful darknesses and cathartic lights in "Constant Drift…," Alder’s heaviest writing effort yet. “Change” has always been my favorite of his songs at his live shows, and it shines here in this powerfully haunting recording. Check out Alder live if you can, or any of his other records for that matter. He is a true talent not only as an artist, but also as a producer. This is well worth the 5 bucks!

I’m proud to announce the first Alder show in probably 3 years. I’ve been working with so many other projects and finally some space has cleared up for me to start playing MY music again. I’ll be playing a FREE show at the Apple store on the 3rd Street Promenade in lovely Santa Monica at 8pm. Stop by to hear some of these new songs and even a few more for the next full-length album I’ve already started.
2010 will be a year of new beginnings for me and Alder. Come be a part of it with me.

Here are the reviews for “Long Way Down” on iTunes. Keep them coming!
A Breath of Fresh Air
Memorable melodies, often exotic instrumentation, and tasteful amounts of delightfully indie sounds grace this album from the catchy start of "Answers" all the way through to the hauntingly honest "Penance". Other favorites include "Dreamer", complete with a marching band making an appearance, as well as the fake-out start to "Sleep This Night". Don’t worry about figuring out which songs to buy, just get them all and you won’t be disappointed.
Complex yet Refreshing
This Desert Life
I listened to this album from start to finish and it was simply amazing. Think the Fray blended with Counting Crows with a dash of Tammany Hall NYC and you have ALDER. Buy this album and you will have the first release of artist we will see in the national spotlight very soon!
Amazing sound. Vocals and songwriting are top notch. Melodies are beautiful and all the instrumentation is well done!! Excellent work; will be enjoyed over and over on my IPod.
