I have been writing songs for several years and have had songs published in the United States and UK on exclusive and non-exclusive publishing deals, with plays on BBC Radio, podcasts and internet radio stations.

In 2022 I secured an exclusive multi-song Indie Licensing deal with a major US licensing company. 

I write solo and occasionally in collaboration with other, and try to write songs with engaging melodies and conversational lyrics, particularly for the country music market. I also write instrumentals for tv/film licensing. 
I also create original and entertaining music videos for my songs which can be viewed on Broadjam and also at: https://www.youtube.com/c/SpanishAlbatross

I have just removed 24 of my songs from my Broadjam page as I now have an exclusive licencing agreement for those song and didn't want to inadvertently submit any of those songs to other opportunities. I'm not sure if this is a good move or not. Only time will tell....

Hello Alan, Love your voice.... Do you ever collaborate?.... I don't sing for beans but I try to write at least one Christmas song each year.. This years song is Island Christmas...On my BJ page I have over 700 tracks. About 40% of those tracks have been Top Lined....The deal is 50/50 with the vocalist and I market aggressively...let me know if interested Thanks Marvin

Hi Marvin, good to hear from you. I wish I could take the credit for my vocals but I regret I have a terrible voice and therefore use singers for hire. I tend to use the same guy as he fits best the songs I write. He doesn't come cheap and I'm not sure if he would be up for collaboration, but if you are interested I will let you have his details. Good luck with your work. Regards, Al

You Can Think Again has an easy way about it! I first saw the Lyrics and knew it was a good one!
Tim does a great Professional job on Vocals, as he does for mine!
Your chorus is still going round! Well done sir!
I cannot see where to give 5 Stars on here now! Any ideas where!

Thanks Jim, no worries about 5 stars etc - imo they don't mean anything on this site. I've had plenty in the past and nothings changed '

Hi Al, appreciate your nice words! you have been on MY radar for a while now, since I saw that Tim appreciates your music with stars! Your songs are better Country than mine! I don't quite have that right Vibe!
Correction! I aspire to your creative ability.
Ever thought of looking at Music Xray! Joined two weeks ago and I have songs retained for use.
Your submitted songs are sent to 5 experts who give an honest % rating and state whether it is advisable to submit to other opportunities! If rated highly you are put in front of pros looking for your type of song!

Oh, I noticed I could give you five stars on the left hand side under graphics.
Five stars boost your songs chances of going up the Top Ten in your category!
Feel free!

Regarding your "Enya" flavour in my music:
So many people have commented on my music being of a Celtic (and now Enya) influence, so I have gone the full hog and used an Uilleann Piper, from your Spain to create a very Celtic rendering of "The Promise"! As it progresses through the latter stages it reaches an atmospheric Crescendo! Wonder if it could be a Film Soundtrack! will put it on my playlist here once I finish this (if I can suss how to enter it on here). Enjoy! The Promise "Uilleann Pipes"
Cheers, Jim

Hi again, yes really enjoy your music. I will award 5 stars - when I work out how to do it - was much easier in the old system! I have been with Music Xray for a few months and have a number of my songs on hold. Seem to get more recognition there than with BJ, but having said that I'm still waiting for the 'breakthrough'. Hey-ho, fingers crossed, and for your Xray subs too. Good luck! Al
