Album Notes
Alan Garr wrote and recorded these songs in an attic on Davie Circle in Chapel Hill, NC in March of 2005 while in between jobs; a place in which Alan was familiar; not the Attic part, the in between jobs part. This time it was a little different, however, in that he hadn't had a drop of alcohol in over a year and found that without the abuse of liquor and o.t.c. speed, unemployment was really pretty boring. He wondered, at first, what people even got up for if they didn't have that morning beer to look forward to in the shower. Anyway, He decided to pass the time by writing and recording. He found it a little odd knowing that he would no longer need those "morning listening sessions" to see just what in the hell he had put down on tape the night before.It seems he had mysteriously stopped having blackouts for some reason. I know, weird huh? Anyway, these songs are in part about an ending to a tired life known and a beginning to a new life unknown, parlaying the effects that lost love and death have on the psyche.Oh and alcohol...sweet sweet alcohol--Lox, Rube

Note: Rube is Alan's manager and drug keeper awayer.

A Real Developing Talent
This new CD, taken with Alan's other recordings, show what artists can achieve when left alone by market forces. Clearly, Alan makes music for the love of doing it but the commercial appeal of his music is undeniable. Hooks abound and the heartfelt singing really brings home his stories of tragedy, isolation, and ultimately - hope. This is true Everyman music unlike any I've heard in a long, long while. I'd be stunned if Alan Garr does not reach a broader audience by just keeping his down and continuing to work on his craft. Each new listener will follow his growth once they give it a chance.

Mel Goldsipe,

Makes me want to head south just to hear Garr play live
... attentive listeners will be rewarded with tight lyrics, poignant stories, rich imagery, and tunes that get under the skin. (Full review to be posted at soon)
