Good music has a catchy rhythm, a hummable melody, and—if you’re lucky—an unforgettable chorus. But great music has something else, something it’s almost impossible to capture: soul. Enter the ever prolific Aloud.
Henry Beguiristain and Jen de la Osa have been the core and soul of the band since their teens in Miami. A shared passion for rock classics like the Beatles, Oasis, Aretha Franklin, and Otis Redding led the pair to start writing and recording their own music. A relocation to Boston where deep ties were formed in the local rock scene, combined with connecting with Aloud’s bassist, Charles Murphy pulled the band into focus. After one final relocation, this time to Los Angeles Aloud was brought into razor sharp focus and found their current drummer Chris Jago.
Dedicated musicianship pays dividends. First on local, then national tours, the band started honing a sound that has earned comparisons to the Alabama Shakes and the Black Keys. This past Valentine’s Day The Big Takeover exclusively premiered the video for Aloud’s tearjerker of a single “Falling Out of Love.”
Recently the band released a cover of The Rolling Stones classic “Dead Flowers” with accompanying video. The release coincided with a tour back east whose centerpiece was the Tribeca Film Festival where Aloud had two featured songs in the movie “All These Small Moments” the directorial debut of Melissa Miller Costanzo starring Molly Ringwald, Brian d’Arcy James, Brendan Meyer, Sam McCarthy, Harley Quinn Smith and Jemima Kirke.
Lastly, Aloud will be celebrating the release of their single with a special show on November 9th at The Federal Bar in North Hollywood.
