"Interview with Aliens Don't Ring Doorbells"

We are here today to have a chat with the guys in the band including yours truly so you can get to know us and see how this adventure got started. So let’s jump aboard the Starship as we explore this fascinating band and answer a number of questions for fans and press alike and learn more about these three gentlemen.
The members of aliensdontringdoorbells are:
• Dorian Foyil – Guitar, Sax, backing and lead vocals
• Adam King – Lead and backing vocals
• Christian Pearl – Keyboards and backing vocals

First off, please tell us how did you get the name Aliens Don’t Ring Doorbells?
Dorian: A number of years ago, my two oldest sons and I were in a NY subway, they were still just boys (6 and 9). Anyway, an old man wandering the subway platform seemingly talking to himself suddenly stopped turned around and said to my 6 year old son Zach, “it’s because aliens don’t ring doorbells”, and just like that he turned and resumed his one-way conversation down the platform. Later, I realized that the old guy was right and the phrase just stuck in my mind and now it’s in yours as well!

Who are the band members?
Christian: The core band is Christian Pearl on keyboards and vocals, Adam King on Lead Vocals and Dorian Foyil on guitar, saxophone and vocals. We are all writers and together we wrote all 12 songs on our new album “Arrival”. Dorian is from the US and Adam and I are from the UK. We are blessed with a great rhythm section on the Arrival album consisting of Kevin Dean on drums and Earl Forbes on bass; both from The Bahamas.


Sounds like a worldwide band, can you tell us more about how you met and started playing together?
Adam: Indeed we are a worldwide band! Christian and I are originally from Birmingham and Liverpool respectively but we live on the Costa Blanca in Spain and Dorian is from California but moved to Spain after living in The Bahamas for many years. Dorian joined my cover band within a month of moving to Spain and a year later we knew we had the right chemistry and way too much experience playing covers and clubs so decided to strike out on our own and Aliens Don’t Ring Doorbells was born!

How would you describe your music?
Adam: We’ve each been around a little while and have played many different types of music in various bands from Hard Rock, Prog Rock, Jazz, Swing and Pop. We write about stories in our lives and those that we have observed but we try and do it in a way that’s accessible to our audience. As far as a genre is concerned, you might think of us as an Adult Pop Rock band with a bit of raw edge.

What is your process for writing your music?
Dorian: We are all busy guys; Adam is also a radio show host and internet show presenter. Christian is a highly successful Youtube piano personality and a Steinway featured artist and I’m a former investment banker active in real estate and investing. The only way we have found to focus that kind of energy is to lock ourselves away for a month and write. And that’s what we did, but we did it in The Bahamas all living in the same condo, getting up and swimming in the ocean first thing and then writing and doing rough demo recordings. When it came to recording the album we rented a house in Denver for a month and hired former Micheal Jackson Thriller engineer Jeff Kanan to produce and record the album at The Keep studios there. It was intense but very productive.


Do you guys have Families? Wife? Children?
Christian: I’m married to the woman I love and together, Rebecca and I have a young son Nathan who now speaks three languages and he’s not yet ten years old!

Adam: I enjoy the company and love of my wife, Lucy; we’ve been together for more than 20 years. We have two daughters Libby and Gracie who both grew up in Spain.

Dorian: My wife and I met over 10 years ago when I was working as an investment manager in Ukraine and together we have a brilliant young son named Christopher and I also have two grown sons Dorian and Zach who are both very busy blazing their own careers these days!

Now that you have recorded your first album “Arrival” what does the future hold for Aliens Don’t Ring Doorbells?
Christian: What we love more than anything is playing in front of an audience and watching the excitement build as we run through our set and the audience gets more and more into the music. We are planning to debut the album this summer to festival audiences in both Europe and North America and hopefully a trip to Asia before we go into the studio again sometime late in 2020.
