Aloud
Aloud
Aloud is a four-piece rock n’ roll band fronted by songwriting team Henry Beguiristain and Jen de la Osa. The two have written songs together since their teens growing up in Miami, Florida. Beguiristain and de la Osa moved to Boston shortly after high school to form Aloud. Over the years, they have created a catalog of songs wide in range, but always influenced by the 60s soul and rock music they grew up on—with a particular affection for harmonies. While the two each have their own distinctive vocal style they are at their best singing together. The two married in 2010.

Aloud’s music has been featured on NPR’s Innovation Hub where it has the honor of being the show’s theme song, ESPN, FOX TV and just recently on a national TV spot for Ashley Furniture. The band has been written about in the Huffington Post, Elmore Magazine, Impose, the Boston Globe, and Time Out to name a few. They play regularly in the northeast, have done two national tours and have been invited several times to the CMJ and SXSW music festivals, and have shared the stage with acts such as Lady Lamb, Lake Street Dive, Cage the Elephant, Alpha Rev, and Hunter Valentine.

Recorded at Boston’s Q Division studios as part of the Converse Rubber Tracks series and produced by Benny Grotto, the band currently has a new double A side single and VR Experience in the works for release later this year. The are heading out on a short west coast tour this spring in support of their upcoming Indiegogo campaign for their VR project.
