The Brook and The Bluff

The Brook and The Bluff

The Brook and The Bluff

Some things in this world exist without any evidence and without anyone taking notice. Feelings of ambiguity, turmoil and loneliness are mostly invisible but as real as any place. So let’s imagine such a place where you are free from those things. Let’s imagine a place that feels like home. Not the home you knew as a child, but a new home, the place where you’re supposed to be. You are at peace in this place. It’s so tangible that you can describe it. It’s in the woods, among the trees, far from the noise out there. It’s between a brook, whose waters carry sounds like soul from Muscle Shoals, and a bluff, whose echoes carry the applause of dancing leaves. This is the place in which you are called to come and play. This is where you belong.

Such a place exists for Mountain Brook’s Alec Bolton and Bluff Park’s Joe Settine. The acoustic neo-soul duo, The Brook and the Bluff, has found a home in music since returning to Birmingham after graduating from college in 2015. They first collaborated musically at Auburn University performing “songs you didn’t know you…

A Face In The Crowd: Alec Bolton

A Face In The Crowd: Alec Bolton

If you’re here, you know what we’re plugged into. But we want to know what YOU have in the headphones! That’s why we’re introducing A Face in the Crowd. At any given time we may pull a perfect stranger out of the crowd and ask what you are listening to. We’ll even mix it up from time to time and pick the brains of some of your favorite musicians. For this edition of A Face in the Crowd, Mother Plug Music welcomes: Alec Bolton…

What is your name?

Alec Bolton

 

What is your occupation?

As of right now, I’m a musician. I play guitar and sing in an acoustic duo called The Brook and the Bluff. I also play lead guitar (and sometimes bass) with a couple of different groups from time to time.

 

Where are you from?

Mountain Brook, AL

 

Did you grow up in a musical family, with a musical background, or with a musical influence?

Yes, my family was pretty musical. My three sisters can all sing, but my dad can play just about any instrument. He taught me how to play drums, guitar, and piano when I was growing up. His dad is a jazz pianist and cello player, so it definitely runs in the family.
