About

Alex Milsted is a Kirtan Wallah, multi-instrumentalist, producer, and music director based in Portland, Oregon.  A confident and capable musician from a very young age, Alex has always found joy in picking up many different instruments and trying to make music whatever way he can.  One thing is for certain, though- every time you see Alex perform, no matter what instrument he’s playing or what role he’s performing on that night, he makes music from the heart.

In 2018, Alex first experienced Bhakti Yoga and the practice of Kirtan and was immediately drawn to it.  He began composing chants and diving into the Kirtan community right away.  Outside of Kirtan performances and home practice, Alex also applies his Kirtan practice in private lessons for musicians.  Seeing a need in the music community, he offers instruction on applying Bhakti practice as a way to maintain health and happiness as a full time professional musician.

Outside of his own projects, you will find Alex Milsted regularly performing alongside The Talbott Brothers, Saeeda Wright, Haley Johnsen, Michalangela, Open Heart Kirtan with Kavita Kat Macmillan, Farnell Newton, Amber Sweeney, Quit The Band, and many more.

Alex Milsted proudly endorses P Mauriat saxophones and Theo Wanne mouthpieces.
