BLACK SHEEP BRASS
Individually, the Black Sheep Brass-ers were born with instruments internal, making sonorous music from the first laugh, cry and baby gurgle. Collectively, cosmic forces joined these musical magicians throughout the past eight years, in the avenues and alleys of Downtown Santa Rosa, to give birth to something holy knew of their own. From the phattest hip hop barnyard beats, to the funkadelic wild of Jungle Jazz, the Black Sheep surely have a rhythmic recipe to make your feet move to unimaginable improvisations, no matter the wild beauty, beast or domestic animal you may be. So, come all you Concrete Jungle Cats and Country Kittens, let us celebrate the majestic unfoldings of space and time through brass, beats and harmonious rhyme.
Alyra Rose and Alyson Miller are ancient soul sisters who met long ago on an auspicious full moon night in the Mendocino Mountains. They met very briefly and carried on. It wasn’t until years later when their lives truly collided and incited something magical. Bonding through their love of music and art they have been crafting and delving into the realm of music and melody now for over 13 years. They weave soulful harmonies with an electro acoustic sound. Alyra is an avid song writer and skilled guitar player while Aly has the voice of an angel and lyrics that capture your heart. She also has a cunning ear for dynamic soundscapes that she weaves into the music in their more electronic sets. They are known for performing with a loop pedal, electric guitar, beats and wild effects or just an acoustic guitar and their lovely voices. Both are captivating in their own right. Together their forces combined is something not to be missed. They have toured from New Mexico to Ireland while making a name for themselves on the west coast where they reside. Alyra and Alyson are recording their first double album together this coming year. Stay Tuned
