Alan Roubik

Born in Los Angeles, California on January 25, 1966, Alan's parents discovered their only child's natural ability to listen to a song and play it by ear on his small electric organ keyboard when he was three years old. Unable to find a piano teacher willing to take on such a young student, they held off on piano lessons until Alan was 9 years old.

Playing piano and composing music came very natural to this young prodigy, yet he never considered pursuing music as a career. That is, until a chance meeting in 1988 with the legendary producer and artist manager Joe Gottfried, who told Alan after listening to three original compositions, “You need to be in this business!” Mentored by Joe, Alan established Roubik Records in 1992 as a launching pad for his own music.

Alan's first album "Promises" was a hit on Contemporary Jazz and Adult Contemporary radio stations in the US and abroad. The popularity of this romantic record lead to the production of the music video "Promises," which regularly aired on such programs such as MTV, Star TV Asia, MOR Music and PBS Classic Arts Showcase. The video was filmed in 35mm by the same production crew that produced pop-star Michael Jackson's music videos, assisted by Director John Landis.

In 1995, Alan began producing the first of the Music For Your Heart series of CDs, which remains the most successful "healing music" recordings ever produced, and is in the National Archives of Japan. Scientifically tested and endorsed by an independent research laboratory in Tokyo lead by best-selling author Dr. Masaru Emoto, Alan’s music is said to have the most healing properties of any modern music. His music is used and recommended by doctors, professional athletes and trainers, fitness and yoga instructors, as well as spiritual healers. Gold Medalist Gary Hall and Coach Mike Bottom used Alan's music at Stanford University as a part of their training, as have numerous other Olympic athletes and champions.

When Alan was 16 years old, he sustained severe damage to the ulnar nerve in his right arm, making it nearly impossible to hold a utensil, let alone play the piano without intense pain. Doctors suggested surgery, but Alan refused and was determined to rehabilitate himself. He sat at the piano daily for as long as he could take the pain and composed music that suited his limited hand movements. Unbeknownst to Alan, he had been utilizing one form of music therapy that would eventually strengthen his hand and allow him full mobility to perform again.
