About Artist

Hi, and many thanks for visiting my site. The songs are from 3 of my albums and have the range of my writing styles. All are written and performed by me (recorded one instrument at a time!)...Our Different Ways - a mid life crisis song!, Wintertime in Paris - my first song written in France, Ten-Dollar T-Shirts - a difficult and multi diverted plane journey from the US to UK (every airport has a ten dollar T-shirt!), Ridgeway - Britain's oldest road near where I live defining social history in the South of England and Watton Conversations - a girl, a pub, a rendevous, that's it!

Two pianos, a guitar, cello, saxophone, clarinet, three violins and a drum kit - these were the instruments that confronted Alan in his parents house at the early age of six - plus five music teachers in the family who were also multi-instrumentalists! He eventually settled for piano and guitar (as well as a bit of bass, drumming & vocals) and set out playing in a wide range of bands, from progressive rock to acoustic. In between he played support in a couple of different bands for the likes of Fairport Convention, Nashville Teens, Julie Felix and Show of Hands. During this time he was also writing a large number of originals - some of them became his bands' standards, but others he kept under wraps until he branched out as a soloist a few years back, recording to date eight albums and around a hundred or so songs - playing instruments one at a time - that's what you hear on these tracks (combinations of keys, bass, guitars, drums) and vocals. Alan happily plays the odd live gig using keyboard and12-string (and vocals). He has also 'rediscovered' music notation and has co-written and orchestrated a 70-minute choral piece with narration and acting which can be found at www.OfHeroicHearts.com
