Alan had dabbled with live performance in his late teens as a folk/blues acoustic player and as a lead guitarist with a blues band called The Earth in the late sixties in his hometown of London. (Their only album, Elemental surfaced recently and was released by Record Collector Magazine in 2016.) But as soon as he landed a job at the famous Abbey Road Studios at the age of 19, it became clear that the world of sound recording was to dominate his career.
Alan has received a large number of awards including 11 Grammy nominations, The Les Paul Award in 1995 and The Diva Hall Of Fame Lifetime Achievement Award in Munich, Germany in June 2012. He is in demand as a public speaker and was keynote speaker at the 2014 Audio Engineering Society Convention in Los Angeles and was the opening speaker at the TEDx Conejo conference in California in April 2012.
Alan has been leading the way regarding technology, blending tech with art for his craft as a recording engineer and producer-performer. Compiling years of expertise into his book (and DVD set), “The Art & Science of Sound Recording, he has created a work unlike anything else available in the marketplace.
2018 brought a special opportunity to the public March 24 and 25. Alan leads an intensive Master Class weekend workshop along with Grammy Award winning arranger (and one of Alan’s band members) Tom Brooks, at Hybrid Studios in Santa Ana, CA, which includes a full symphony orchestra. Participating in the intensive will be session greats Vinnie Colaiuta, Nathan East and Jeff Kollman. The track, an orchestral classic, is being given the Prog Rock treatment and will actually appear on Alan’s next album. Alan is not only in the middle of recording that album, he’s doing it on his brand-new all analogue Neve 5088 console, at his new state-of-the-art recording studio.
