Alex - Guitar, Vocals, Bass
As the lead guitarist and singer for Novus Cantus, Alex has created a style all his own. Crisp yet powerful, Alex has been inspired by classical, world and modern rock music, which has resulted in a spellbinding fusion.
Beginning in the early 2000s, Alex began studying voice and guitar in Poughkeepsie, New York, where he studied with renowned mentors Jeff Armstrong and Tony Regina. It is during this time that Alex began seriously composing; using the new styles of flamenco and classical guitar to compose songs like Journey, Holy Man, and In the City.
Since then, Alex has been focusing on building his technique while balancing other passions, including teaching and religion. Most recently, Alex has revised several songs and is planning on working with Christian to finally bring Novus Cantus into the spotlight and pursue this "once in a lifetime" opportunity.
Christian - Drums, Guitar, Bass, Flute
Christian welds a wide array of diverse styles into his parts for Novus Cantus. Like his brother, Christian has been acknowledged for his unique approach and style, combining complex rock rhythms for songs like "Despair", to worldly beat-driven compositions like "Journey" and "Storm".
Christian has been playing drums since elementary school, but began to study percussion seriously when he met his mentor, Eric Wagner. Being introduced to more advanced techniques, Christian was able to embrace styles that he had long had a passion for, including rock, world and Latin. Like his brother, Christian fuses many styles together in his music, and ideally, would never play the same thing twice.
