Brother Spellbinder plays genre bending indie-folk with elements of world, classical, and americana. The music has been described as cabaret folk-pop and gypsy folk. The core cast includes ukulele, cello, guitar, drums and vocals plus rotating members on saxophone, violin, flute and electric lead. Lyrics flow from the uncensored mythical realm of the human psyche to the here and now of human experience.
Band leader Alzara Getz played with various local bands over the years and finally decided it was time to create her own. As the daughter of a frequently gigging musician, she developed a love for melody and a knack for creating interesting arrangements. She works as a public health social worker and gains inspiration from daily stories of suffering and healing.
