ABOUT

Enjoy the Mystery

   Emerging from an eclectic background of music, Alexis Pareja has continually sought a new approach to bring forth fresh innovative form to music.  At a very young age he was exposed to the rhythmic pulse of his Colombian culture and other surrounding Latin American countries causing an innate urge to learn the language of music. He started to pursue studying music through self study and later through William Paterson University and Berklee.  

   Co-founding the international touring act, The Number Twelve Looks Like You, at 16 he soon started his journey into a world of heavy twisted labyrinth style music. The band embraced the use of various elements from many other genres of music to continuously push forward into new territory. 2 Eps, 4 full lengths, and a DVD are some of the accomplishments amongst having toured all of Canada, USA, Europe, and Japan extensively. 

Alexis Pareja continues to compose, teach, and further explore the endless horizon of music through other various creative projects. 

 

“The true use of music is to become musical in one's thoughts, words and actions. One should be able to give the harmony for which the soul yearns and longs every moment. All the tragedy in the world, in the individual and in the multitude, comes from lack of harmony, and harmony is best given by producing it in one's own life.”
