Alder plays acoustic guitar with a passion that has quickly earned him a reputation as Vancouver’s “best-kept little secret.”

He is a world-class fingerstyle guitarist with a “wow factor” that has led to multiple endorsement deals with major manufacturers and a collaboration with Greenfield guitars to produce a signature acoustic guitar.

Alder’s music is original, blending elements of jazz, roots, folk, blues, bluegrass and world music.

He has been described as the ‘renaissance man’ of acoustic guitar.

Alder has toured internationally, gaining global acclaim and winning numerous awards (2007 International Fingerstyle Championship, 2010 Guitar Superstar, 2011 Guitar Idol III.

Adler recently received the Domenic Troiano Guitar Award in the multi-genre category.
