High Pressure is my new single, released 5 July 2020 and it reflects on global warming issues. I wrote it in January, but with the lockdown etc, it's only just been recorded. However, that gave me an opportunity to modify the lyrics to take account of the amazing 'before/after' satellite and land pictures of cities, revealing the the clarity due to less vehicle emissions due to lockdown. Out now in the usual places and there's a more detailed explanation of the song on the Ava Live Radio website . Thanks AVA!

I'm absolutely delighted to have had Saturday Morning as a finalist song in the recent World Songwriting Awards listings. It was written a while back, but when I teamed up with vocalistĀ  Lilijan RoseĀ  it developed into a really fresh approach to the song. Looking forward to more entries to WSA in the future, but for now, Cheers!

Following a great response to 'We'll Carry the Torch for Each Other' - nearly 25,000 hits on Spotify, Alan has continued his acoustic approach through lockdown by releasing a new single, Macky the Pit Pony. It's a tale set in 1905 in the Northeast of England coal mines and takes him back to some of his roots, not just geographically but also trekking around folk clubs as a floor spot and ultimately guest act.
