New album, Balladeer, out March 4th and gig dates!
London based troubadour Alan Bonner is offering gorgeous ballad ‘Talia’ for free. The track oozes grace, with beautiful strings harnessing Alan’s voluptuous vocals and showcases his wonderful talent for crafting stunning music, powered by passion and artistic flare.
His brand new album is receiving some fantastic critical acclaim, and his tour has kicked off to a sensational start, where he’s performing Balladeer and more. His shows are renowned for being an awesome night. Time Out London boasts “Alan Bonner plays glam-tinged Piano ballads. You will want to steal his fabulously vintage outfits.”
Alan explains: “'Talia' is an ode to my best friend of the same name. We met at on the first day of University and have been thick as thieves ever since The Lyric written in panic on her birthday one year when I was on the dole and too skint to buy her a birthday present. It was only ever meant to be a silly gift for her and I never intended to release it originally but when I played the demo to my old band members they convinced me to start playing it live when we were touring with my first album.
It’s funny because it’s one of the songs that people seem to respond to the most, and now I think it’s one of my best songs. I like to imagine that she is out there in the crowd each night when I play it at the end of the show cheering me on, even on the nights when I know that she’s not there. If there was ever anyone worthy of being immortalised in song it’s her.”
