London, London and South East, UK
Artist / Band / Musician
My English country rock adventure began back in the early nineties with my band The Rockingbirds. Inspired by the cosmic American music of Gram Parsons and the Flying Burrito Brothers, we made two critically acclaimed albums on the Heavenly (Sony/Columbia) label -The Rockingbirds (1992) and Whatever Happened to the Rockingbirds (1994) and the band went on to tour the UK extensively, with festival appearances at Glastonbury, Reading, Phoenix, Cambridge, and Finsbury Park Fleadh and TV appearances on things like Later with Jools Holland, Top of the Pops and MTV. The band split in 1995 but in 2008 we re-united to play the Heavenly 18th birthday celebrations at the South Bank in London, and this led to the re-release of the long deleted first album on Heavenly and a short UK tour.
In between all this, I've made 4 albums, 2 under the name of Alan Tyler and the Lost Sons of Littlefield, 3 for our Spanish friends Hanky Panky records.

I continue to write and perform with the Lost Sons, the Rockingbirds, and as a solo artist. I also run my Sunday afternoon music event Come Down and Meet the Folks every second and last Sunday of the month at the Apple Tree pub in Clerkenwell, London.
