Her genre is pop/ soul and singer/songwriter music. Grown up in a small village in Austria, she soon realised that something bigger is waiting for her, outside her comfort zone.

But now it's time to start her solo-project with an additional EP-Launch. "Let you go" was her first published single with a music video on Youtube which was released this June 2015.

ALAN BONNER - Singer, Songwriter, BalladeerAlan Bonner is a singer-songwriter based in London. After leaving his small village in Suffolk for the bright lights of London at 18, he's spent the past few years writing, recording and playing at venues across the UK and Europe, all the while writing lyrics on beer mats and bashing out chords on a beaten Piano.Since graduating from the Brighton Institute of Modern Music in 2007, Alan's emotionally-charged live shows have left audiences stunned, not only by the intensity of his performances and quality of his vocals, but by the honesty and confessional nature of his songs. Having supported acts such as FYFE DANGERFEILD, DAVID FORD, IN ME, GOLDHEART ASSEMBLY, and SONS OF NOEL AND ADRIAN, he has built up a loyal following and has played at festivals throughout the UK including OXJAM, GLOBAL GATHERING and BRIGHTON LIVE

.Alan Bonner came to create a sort of poetic oasis amongst the more vivacious and aggressive guitar-based bands. His music was an onomatopoeic melange of sounds, where the melodic piano meets the melancholic cello and the softly-stroked guitar.
All instruments were then embraced by Alan's gritty yet mellifluous vocals and the sound of it was interesting. Pieces like Narcissist's Wet Dream and Talia stood out as possible singles, both reminiscent of Tori Amos' evocative airs and with decadent themes " la Bowie."

"Alan Bonner plays glam-tinged Piano ballads. You will want to steal his fabulously vintage outfits."TIME OUT LONDON
