singer-songwriter Alan McCulloch has a lot of experience under his belt. His songs
have been featured on BBC Radio One, TV and local radio stations throughout the
UK. He has toured extensively in '70s pop and rock bands, made major label recordings
and is now poised at the forefront of the new breed of original talents on the
British New Country scene.
Born to Scottish
parents, and brought up on a mixture of Scottish Dance, Jimmy Shand and Jim Reeves,
it was not until a few years ago when he discovered American New Country that
Alan really started listening and taking an interest in country music. Now, he
is not only an avid fan, but a committed country music performer. "I like Garth,
his stage show is great, but George Strait is my hero. In fact I like a lot of
the Texas guys."
He got hooked
on modern country when he bought Garth Brooks' No Fences. "The best songs written
in a long time. Anyone who doesn't get why Garth is so big isn't listening. I
think it's because he picks songs that run through all emotions and speak to people,
I know they speak to me."
