Bio

Santiparro signifies “the lens that sees many things not usually seen.” This was the name given to Brooklyn songwriter Alan Scheurman by a Huichol ma’arakame (shaman) during his first pilgrimage to the sacred desert lands known as Wirikuta – the place where the very first peyote cactus appeared in the Earth. Like the name indicates, Scheurman’s songs are delicate weavings of stardust and spirit, ether and earth, bringing to light the invisible through a magnification of the subtle space in between the breath and the beat of the heart. He knows how to tap into that ancient source and bring out the truth of his experience in a song that teaches as much as it plays with the listener - like the trickster archetype. If one thing has been consistent in his career, it has been that place of truth as it has evolved from his own dark depression to the light of indigenous spiritual wisdom, clearly resulting from Scheurman’s affinity for and time spent with many indigenous elders and wisdom keepers of the Americas. For at least a decade, Scheurman’s songwriting has been vital and influential throughout the Detroit music community and beyond. In 2008, after seven years of leading one of Detroit’s most beloved indie rock bands, Rescue, he released his debut solo album “Old Patterns” as a free download. Produced by Warren Defever of His Name Is Alive, “Old Patterns,” with its jazzy brass, airy soundscapes, and crisp, clear, vintage vocals quickly became recognized as one of the best psychedelic folk records to ever come out of Detroit. In 2010 he relocated to Brooklyn, founded a spiritual community center called Golden Drum, formed the band Ka, and joined an Alice Coltrane cover band led by Kyp Malone (TV on the Radio). He's self-released "Get Well Soon" and "Past Lives", both collections of bedroom recordings and an LP record with Ka called "Good Morning Every One".
