Rodrigo Alarcon is a musician and songwriter who fell into a jazz coma. When he’s not practicing jazz standards for school, he’s transcribing and writing songs in varied genres— neo-soul, dream-pop, baroque-pop, indie-rock, post-punk, math rock. Rodrigo crafts and blends this eclectic array based on what’s inspired him in the moment, often switching from one style to the next on a song-to-song basis. As a songwriter, he aims for aesthetic unity within each release. Though if he is not writing for a band, separate releases tend to differ stylistically, while still carrying his distinctive sensibilities.

Check out his most recent release, “Rational Dream”.
