In Alan’s hometown of Stoke-on-Trent in 1984 it was the old upright piano in the dining room that was to be his introduction to music. That beautiful honky-tonk sound was the bedrock for the beginnings of his musical journey. His first professional keyboard was the legendary Yamaha DX7 which was the instrument used for his early performances in Congleton Town Hall and Marquees in the Park. He played in lots of venues across North Staffordshire and South Cheshire in those early days.

Since then, Alan has enjoyed travelling ‘all over the place’ playing all kinds of styles and genres for over 20 years. Many different venues from the Blackpool Winter Gardens, the Sands Centre Carlisle, Birmingham Convention Centre to the Nottingham Playhouse. Stretching the length of the UK from Dundee to Swansea, Milford Haven to Hunstanton. Numerous Festivals in Thirsk, Shropshire, Southport, Skegness and the Scottish Borders, as well as performances in Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Austria and Cyprus.

Alan joined VOULEZ VOUS at the end of 2011 where he thrived playing the songs of ABBA with VOULEZ VOUS. In early 2016 he joined SWEDE DREAMZ(Thank ABBA for the Music Ltd). "It’s the most incredible cast and a real privelidge to play the part of Benny Anderson with this such an amazing group of people. I am delighted to be on the team for this fresh challenge!"

I am driven by all that life throws at me taking me through the most incredible amazingly happy experiences contrasted by the hardship that is given to all of us in the modern world. This is the cocktail of life and its gives birth to inspiration for music,lyrics and songs which capture all of this. The great, the good and the challenges too! .I have also recorded a collection of my own songs called ‘Manhattan Stroll’

Like the smoothness of all those good old tunes we grew up with

blended with a modern twist the music paints a picture, tells a story, creates an image, melts a heart, feeds a mind, inspires a dream!
