More information: Alan Reed - for 25 years the voice of Scots Progressive Rock legends Pallas - unveils his first album as a solo artist. 'First in a Field of One' is a unique collection of songs that provide the perfect setting for the unmistakable timbre of Alan's voice. The album embraces a number of musical flavors - from Celtic folk, world music, and even jazz; - held together by strong song writing and a passionate sense of identity.
Since parting ways with Pallas at the beginning of 2010, Alan has concentrated on distilling his own distinct musical identity. His first solo release 'Dancing with Ghosts' (2011) was an EP of acoustic re-workings of Pallas and Abel Ganz tracks along with some new compositions. He's performed regularly in this format. His intention has been to confound expectations rather than live in the shadow of his previous work. In 2013 he intends to tour with a full electric band.
