A Poor Man With The Taste Of A Millionaire
A supremely tasty, classy, lush and delicate classic jazz track. Smooth as velvet, featuring all live instruments and orchestra, and a female vocal towards the end of the track. Classic big band jazz ensemble with orchestra. Stick around to hear the short vocal part around the 3 minute mark - it'll be worth it.
A self-taught multi-instrumentalist, Alan Peter has been writing music since he took up guitar at 16 years of age. He was piano/keys player and co-songwriter with Irish alternative rock band Woodstar, who in 2001 signed with EMI Parlophone to release the critically acclaimed EP 'Time To Bleed', produced by Ben Hillier (Depeche Mode, Doves). This was followed by 'Life Sparks' LP in 2002, produced by Richard Rainey (U2, Clannad) and Stephen Street (The Cranberries, The Smiths, Blur). In 2003 after Woodstar parted ways, Alan built a home studio and began to explore the idea of writing songs and instrumental pieces in diverse styles, with the intention of finding a home for them on "The Big Screen". His musical influences would include (in chronological order): Abba, Gilbert O'Sullivan, Johann Strauss, Dire Straits, Bread, America, Paul Simon, Jim Croce, Prefab Sprout, Sting, The Smiths, Go Betweens, John Lennon, Burt Bacharach, Red House Painters, Wilco, Sparklehorse, Sergei Rachmaninov, Ennio Morricone, Dario Marianelli & Frederic Chopin.
