Howlin' Alan

Howlin’ Alan is singer/songwriter artist who doesn’t abide by musical boundaries. So, he created a new genre he calls, “Country Rock Americana Pop (acronym not indicative)”…. Good listeners will also feel his blues influence. Born and raised in Little Rock, Arkansas, but calling Nashville home for over twenty years, he is student of music history. Early on, Howlin’ Alan immersed himself with 60’s music and 70’s classic rock, but country, blues, even world music and various genres, made their way on to his personal playlists. Howlin’ Alan’s ears recognize the good stuff.

On his new cd, “Back to Plan A” (release date 10-11-12), Howlin’ Alan is responsible for 100% of the songwriting. In addition, he did all the guitar, mandolin, harmonica and vocal work. Regarding live performance, his choice to play without a band, at this point, opens many doors for future engagements including his availability as an opening act. A smaller club tour is in the works as well.

Years ago, it was the full intent of Howlin’ Alan to write and record his own music. His past is full of great material written on his own and with several co-writers, including “In the Shade of the Family Tree” recorded by an unbelievable A-list of Country Music and Grand Ole Opry artists over a decade ago for the book, “Chicken Soup for the Country Soul”. But, finally, the time was just right and the title appropriate for getting, “Back to Plan A” and making his dreams a reality.
