Alan Smith is a 19 year old singer/songwriter from Scotland. Who is releasing his new EP (independently). The six track project entitled “The Actress and The Lifeguard” has been written entirely and co-produced by Smith. With production and mastering completed by Marc Andrew of Splash Productions Music Complex.
Alan joined splash productions showgroup- in 2005 and quickly became one of the most popular and sought-after acts on the line up. Throughout his time at Splash, Alan performed classic renditions such as “Groovejet” , “Message In A Bottle” and “Love Will Tear Us Apart”.
Alan’s unique and non-Scottish style of singing comes from childhood guilty pleasure; Sophie Ellis-Bextor, which gradually turned into his love of classic singer/songwriters like modern day songstress Nerina Pallot.
Smith began singing and playing piano at a very young age, but didn’t start writing his own original material until the age of 15.
Alan released his first full length album “Room With A View” in 2011, creating a quiet storm. The cd was tweeted about positively by the likes of BoyGeorge and British songwriter Lucie Silvas.
Alan’s tracks; “Hey Girl! ( i ain’t your brother )” and “If We Are Wasting Time” showcase Alan’s love for big, catchy choruses. Yet tracks like “With Meaning” and new song “Wishing We Had Never Even Said Hello” hit a softer, more wistful note on Alan’s songwriting.
Smith’s maturity in his lyrics should be commended, allowing listeners to steer away from a world of stereotypical teen pop sensations.
“The Actress and The Lifeguard” will be released digitally on Itunes, Amazon Mp3, GooglePlay and Spotify from April 1st 2013.
