Alan's music has received much critical acclaim. Here is a quote from Skope Mag's April 2010 "Music Up Close" column: "The guitar work is exceptional, but Alan also adds layers with synthesizer that would take a full orchestra to produce. He told me that his approach was 'to use the available technology to produce as natural and organic sounding finished song as possible.' My favorite song is 'Gracious,' which is an inspiring island gospel tune with a full backup chorus...".
