PRLog - Nov. 20, 2012 - NEW YORK -- Born in the Dominican Republic, this singer/songwriter of Haitian descent started playing the guitar at 15. He came to New York and attended Manhattanville College, where he first began writing and composing music with his brother Jean-Marc.
Alex and Jean-Marc grew to form a songwriting powerhouse that has sparked the interest of both independent and major music labels. Their song “One Way Street,” won ‘The Punisher Video Game Contest”, earning the Berne Brothers a spot in “The Punisher” video game soundtrack in 2004.
2006 marked a major milestone in Alex’s songwriting career, as the song “Canta Por Ella,” co-written with his brother Jean-Marc, was published by Bad Boy Latino. The song is performed by recording artist Christian Daniel. (For more info, please visit www.christiandaniel.com/
During this time, Alex formed his own band, N/A (Not Applicable). As the lead singer and guitarist, Alex teamed up with bassist Dave Metcalfe and percussionist Matt Marcella. Alex took his rhythmically powerful and melodic music to the public, debuting at New York City’s Acme Underground on September 17, 2001.
Alex found his home in NYC, performing at such historical clubs as Downtime, CBGB’s, CB’s 313 Gallery, and the Continental. Alex has been featured in an online broadcast on MusicTV.com, as well as several webcasts on CBGB.com.

Since then, the band has parted ways, and Alex is now pursuing a solo career.
