Alec Berfield

Recording & Touring Artist

Alec plays the Sk2

He has that Ray Charles, Leon Russell, Bill Payne style but adds the Terry Adams (NRBQ) outlook to performance. Bluesy and snappy by design but with a strong dose of musical humor.  Born in Southampton, Long Island but quickly relocated to Tennessee where he got his first Silvertone guitar for his birthday at age 8. Then on to Jackson, Tennessee where he started playing tenor saxophone live at 13 around The Chittlin’ Circuit with The Cavaliers, discovering the Wurlitzer Piano, Ray Charles and others.


A true devotee of Ray Charles, James Brown and that ilk of artist, then on to The Beatles, English Rock and Leon Russell which turned him in to somewhat of a musical chameleon rounding out with an introduction to the blues which is where his focus lies today.
