Groovy, fun boy that can kick it out solo or with a band.
Breck Alan once hopped in his van and played gigs from one end of the U.S. to the other. "That was a damned long drive," he was reported to have said afterwards.
"I currently tour solo but love playing in a band. Even as a soloist I play a lot of clubs and big stages usually dedicated to bands."
Breck has also written a series of vocal instruction books titled "The Art of Body Singing," available through https://www.tradebit.com and many music and book stores nationally.

Alan's music is accessible and feel-good enough to garner even drive-time radio play. Fortunately, he's talented, and fun, which should reduce the saccharine levels at the stations he seems destined for. Westword Magazine
April Boyle, Northeast Performer:
Breck Alan has you laughing one moment and absorbed by the intrinsic beauty of his songs the next.
Alan sings with such ease, that it's almost easy to forget the talent required to conjure up his characteristic voices.
Alan has a knack of drawing listeners in and getting them to identify with his songs.

Like most original artists I like playing one long powerful set complete with encores and roses. In that setting I play 90% original songs with a cover or two for fun. In other instances where I'm playing two or three sets over a long night I mix it up quite a bit. My covers vary from classic rock to alt rock, old to new, R&B to Jazz, surf to delta blues. I like a wide range of music.
Currently all I need are two direct boxes and a microphone
