Biography

Up and comer Alan J. Bloom blends rock, funk, reggae, and folk to create a unique sound that is at once personable and unpredictable. His intense nature makes every note he produces raw but sweet with passion. His original lead rhythms and strong lyrics make every song exciting and innovative. Some of Alan's song inspirations include love, death, mermaids, and lust.
From the death of his brother to the 1500 mile trek to Nashville, TN there have been several twists and turns to make the road as rocky as possible. Alan says, "I have never let anything get in the way of my dreams. I came down here with $100 in my pocket and have stood up to the tests of homelessness and unemployment. Now that I've been playing some smaller gigs and building a great following I think it's time I play some real gigs."
While living in Connecticut he played all over New England from Maine's Old Orchard Beach to downtown New York City's Buster's Garage. The most gigs he played in one year is astonishing, racking up 255 dates successfully with a 100% call back rating.
Junior Padilla's sweet beats and licks add so much flavor to the stew as well as Bernard Lackner's juicy bass lines. An absolute wall of sound with just three players will have any person who hears this music stand up and pay attention.

Lyrics

Weather

Written By: Alan J. Blumenthal

I could never practice obsession
Would never work on a girl like you
What it takes and what it makes
I will always find the truth

With my head just above water
I look back at what we had
Figuring out just where we've been
It don't look so bad

When I turn my eyes
I see you looking back at me
Well I could never be alone
As long as we will be

I know its not for certain but I can
pray

I know we would dance like lighting
Across this stormy southern night
We could move to the sound of thunder and I know, I know it would all be right

I have felt this every morning
Rise and shining with this queen
But sooner or later
I will find out it's a dream

But when she come's my way
Shivers up and down my spine
This or that could be the day
I will find out if she's mine

PRECHORUS
CHORUS

You and I long to roam on alone
