Biography

Allan Dawson is a recording artist, singer, guitarist, songwriter, studio engineer and record producer based in London, UK. His artistic style draws from a wide range of music influences and life experiences, which are reflected in a varied collection of thought provoking songs spanning a range of rock styles, from slow ballads to high energy guitar showcases brimming with hooks, riffs and solos.

Allan began his performing career aged 14 in his home town in North Wales to a live audience of 3,000 people, as the lead guitarist of his rock band Sonic Deflexion. Having perfected his guitar skills working in several bands throughout his teens he had also amassed a collection of self written songs and learned the art of the studio engineer/producer. In 1995 he teamed up with fellow producer/engineer Martin Wilding (Mansun/James/Roger at Rockcliffe Studio in North Wales to record a collection of songs intended as a “songwriter’s demo”. Three session vocalists were booked to perform on the project, but each had to cancel due to other commitments. This forced Allan, who had until now been very comfortable working as a backing singer on stage, to have to take the plunge and sing lead vocals on his own project. This was the turning point which started Allan on the path of working as a solo artist and the sessions became his first album “Killing Time”. The vocal delivery on the album gave producer Martin Wilding cause to remark that Allan had a very identifiable “rock-voice” and urged him to continue working as a vocalist.
