Hi, I'm Alan Falkingham. Thanks for stopping by at A1 Songs, the site where you can hear music I have composed for film, TV, advertising and also general release.
I also play live acoustic guitar music for weddings and events; see www.alanrichard.uk
Indian Reflections seems to have been well received and has hit the Asian Music top 10 several times this year.
A bit about me...
I have played guitar from the age of 9. As a typical teenager in the sixties I was heavily influenced by the Beatles / Stones / Kinks etc and later by the magic of Motown and especially the Blues and Soul from the Stax / Sun labels etc. As a largely self taught musician I play by ear. I love to jam and solo with any band who will have me! (So get in touch!)
Keyboard playing came along - again self taught - in the nineties as a way to access home recording technolgy. Since then I have built a small but growing repertoire of my own compositions, some of which have been used in TV and films across the world.
I love just about all musical genres (but still don't get RAP) and have played pop, jazz, blues, classical and even West End show music.
Some of the bands I've been involved with in my playing career....
Detroit Soul Sound
Bryan Jones Musical Ride
Pagan Chorus (appeared on Opportunity Knocks in 1974)
Instruments played on my recordings:
M-Audio Sono 61
East West - orchestral and voices
Line 6 600
Line 6 300 Nylon
Martinez Stage Guitar
Yamaha LL Acoustic
Spanish Flamenco Guitar by Vincente Sanchis Badia
Music is the one thing in life that can transcend language. If only they would listen...
Peace to all.
