He has had solo and co-written works played on many Radio Stations in the UK and US, such as BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio Wales, UIC Chicago, and Indie Stations in New York, LA , Philly etc. Allan recently played his first live solo acoustic performance on BRFM Radio. As the bass player and lead singer with Ohibo Paronti, he appeared on BBC 2 television, showcasing one of his solo compositions as well as three co-written songs. He has had a co-written song, Do It Again, released on an RCA Compilation Album. His tastes and musical involvement are wide and varied. He has recently payed bass with Jazzy Africana, a fusion of traditional African music with Jazz and blues. He also recorded a live performance with them last year for BBC Radio Wales. The late Phil Lynott once commented to Mike Oldfield, having watched Allan play at the Hammersmith Odeon, that he was...\'an amazing bass player and vocalist\' Recently, multi-Grammy nominated Producer Dennis F Moody from LA said of Allan\'s current songs, \'Great songs, great melodies and a unique voice.\' Equally praising him, top UK Producer Andy Hayman said, \'I really like the songs and ideas, great work.\' Also, DJ Claire Scott, Wave Radio, says \'a great sound, very individual. There is simply nothing like him around at the moment.\'....and so it goes on. Allan has spent the last 18 months studying and teaching himself techniques in mixing and mastering. His first four songs on offer, show him playing all instruments from drums to acoustic guitars, lead guitars, bass, keyboards etc and recording all the vocals himself. A number of classical musicians have made comment on the great string arrangements on some songs, again something he is teaching himself. Allan has over a full albums worth of songs written and recorded in his project studio, which he has built himself and four as an EP and prelude to a debut album are already finished. Will this all lead anywhere worthwhile? Only time and reaction will tell. Allan Price;- Musician/Composer/Engineer/Producer/Lover of Music.
