Alec Hanley Bemis is best known as the co-founder of Brassland, the artist-driven label behind Clogs and The National, which he started with two of the latter band’s musicians Aaron and Bryce Dessner.

After an active writing career, penning pieces for the New York Times, New York Post and LA Weekly in 2001, Alec started running Brassland, a role which he feels is “like writing with people”.

Based in New York, Alec and Brassland provide an alternative to the commercial saturation that defines much of the music industry, creating a label that is arguably by artists for artists. A place to explore, collaborate and connect.

Discussing his insights on the way that digital has evolved the music industry, from being an object to a service, Alec sees a transcended level-playing field upon which artists can do what they do best. Make music.
