Alan Bay / Bio

I am a singer/songwriter - composer from villages Marisol and Oriente (downsouth province of Buenos Aires, Argentina). I play guitar and a little bit of other instruments. I write and sing my songs and I play instrumental passages too.

When I was 17, I played in an instrumental music contest. It was a great experience, I learnt a lot about the guitar and its different possibilities. I wrote my first songs by that time too, but I recorded my first instrumental landscapes by 2010, when I was 24.

I've been working on my first instrumental album since 2012. I have recorded all instruments and have worked as a producer alongside my friend Mauricio Chávez. Mauricio has worked on the album art. This album deals with most of the styles I play: Progressive/Symphonic Rock, Ambient, Classic Rock, New Age, Space Rock, Folk, Blues, Jazz Fusion and World Music (Celtic, Southamerican, African, etc).

"Muses", my first EP as a singer/songwriter will be released in December 2014. It's an acoustic EP which contains 5 original songs.

Previous project: IRIS

In April 2011, I teamed with my friends Darío Gallardo (rhythm guitar and singer), Mauricio Chávez (collaborator as percussionist and singer) Jorge Quero (charango) and we founded a project named IRIS, a local melodic folk-rock band. We used to combine ballads, melodic pop/rock, Argentinian folklore, rock, blues, ambient/prog rock and other styles (www.reverbnation.com/irisoriente). We disbanded in January 2013.
