“Allan is so talented!! He has a stunning new album that sounds a bit like Pink Floyd and Moody Blues. His music is classy and timeless. When I 1st heard his songs I knew he had the magic and talent.”

“Hey, I personally think that it shows that you are more musically gifted if you can bring us different kinds of music than just playing the same thing tune after tune. I like your music very much because of its diversity and you are not tryin’ to repeat yourself or any artist out there. I appreciate the creativity you put into your music style. From a true fan of all your music!”

“In your songs I hear compassion, strength, stories, old and new, memories, of yesterday and today. Past, future. But most of all I hear calm, soothing, I understand. With your instrumentals, I hear incredible talent, I hear happy, sad and other emotions. I don’t know a lick of the chords but I sure feel them!”


“The songs on the new album are absolutely amazing – beautiful, ethereal, soothing and in touch with the ineffable.”
