Alan Thornhill: Lead Vocals. Currently in Ojai, CA, Alan''s recent album "Sittin'' Out the Rain" was Mavric Music Award''s Album of the Year. On his musical views, Alan has this to say: Music for me is one thread that has helped to hold things together in times when there seemed to be much that was so uncertain in the world. It''s difficult at times to figure out which way to point ones'' feet, and to go in a direction that might make a difference and some sort of sense. Sometimes it feels like the best thing we could do would be to just stop everything, and all sit down together and maybe rethink what we''ve been doing all this time, and why...?.
I know we are capable of great things, more than we have even imagined . We could stand to spend a lot more time and energy focusing on what we all know is the right thing. It is a simple matter of choice. https://www.tradebit.com
