Excellent modern acoust/folk CD. Pick up a copy today!
“Looking for a Novel” by masterful story-teller Alan Barrington is a heart-warming collection of bluesy modern folk tunes. One of the most striking elements of “Looking for a Novel” is the fact that its lyrics read like a best-selling novel! Tales of everyday experiences and love-searching are told in the most compelling way possible – poetic passion. What’s more, Alan Barrington’s strong, controlled, and affectionate vocals are perfect for this genre. “Better than a Week in the Country” veers to a country rock sound that is delightfully energetic and hook-ridden – showing off Alan’s diversity. “You Believed in Me” stands out as an emotion-provoking modern folk song that is spiritually enlightening. Moreover, the production of “Looking for a Novel” successfully turns these story-book tales into country hits! Fans of James Taylor and Lyle Lovett will find a new modern folk home in these delightful tunes!

Looking for a Novel
Alan Barrington has the ability to capture moments in time and then paint them on a canvas of notes and chords makes his new CD a great addition to any collection.
Perhaps one of the best crafted songs on an album full of great selections is "Circle of Gold". This outstanding song is filled not only with the imagery Barrington is known for, but also the tenderness and understanding of relationships. This could easily become a standard at weddings as well as a favorite with romantics everywhere.
D and M Music believes fans of folk, easy listening, and pop genres will enjoy Barrington's music.
