Since graduating from the Brighton Institute of Modern Music in 2007, the wondering troubadour Alan Bonner has graced stages all over the world and charmed audiences across the UK, Europe and America, with his emotionally charged vocals and confessional songs.
With the independent release of two albums, “Songs for the Heartshaped” (2008) and “Balladeer”(2012), airplay on BBC6 Music, and critics comparisons to the likes of Frank Turner and Rufus Wainwright under his belt, Alan Is currently working on a third Album for release in late 2015.
What the press have said:
“Mr Bonner has the means of a pauper but sings with the heart of a king” SURVIVING THE GOLDEN AGE
“A masterful songwriter. The music itself tends to play second fiddle to Bonner’s impeccable voice – it brinks on Bowie, Bombadil and Wainwright. It’s achingly sweet, painfully honest and furious. ‘ BEARDED MAGAZINE
“This is the type of music that will endure long after other fads and fashions have passed on by. When the power lines are down the likes of Alan Bonner will still be able to sit at a piano and pick up a guitar and mesmerise audiences with ability and creativity, without whistles and bells, without smoke and mirrors, but with just ability and emotion. The album is timeless, not only in the accepted sense, but in the way the clock stops when you listen to it and the world pauses to breath and bask in its warmth.” ELECTRIC HARMONY MUSIC
“Alan Bonner plays glam-tinged Piano ballads. You will want to steal his fabulously vintage outfits.” TIME OUT LONDON
