About

Alex Milsted is a 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.

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, Hot Tea Cold, and many more.

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

Northwest Talent Spotlight 

 

Northwest Talent Spotlight has been far and away the best live streaming platform that has emerged in Portland since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.  It's helping to keep the music community connected a little bit, and allows us to put on a concert from afar.  So far, I've done a Facebook Live performance there with the Sol Syndicate, I have one with Amber Sweeney on June 5th, and another with Michalangela TBA!  I'm sure there will be many more in the future, keep an eye on my calendar.  Visit their Facebook page to check out all of the shows they have to offer.  Northwest Talent Spotlight is keeping a back log of their videos on their Facebook page as well, so take a look there if you missed the live show.
