Alan Reed - for 25 years the vocalist with Scots progressive rock band Pallas - is delighted to announce his debut release as a solo artist.
'C'est La Vie' is a Greg Lake song specially recorded for the forthcoming Emerson, Lake and Palmer tribute CD 'The Endless Enigma' to be given away free with the next issue of 'Classic Rock presents Prog' magazine. It features Alan's unique voice and 12-string guitar alongside the spectacular piano playing of Mike Stobbie, also a former member of Pallas.
Alan said: " When I heard about 'Prog' magazine's ELP project I immediately thought of this song, as it's one I've always loved playing. I persuaded Mike that we should take time out from working on my forthcoming solo album to see what we could make of it. I'm very pleased with the results."
Alan and Mike continue to work on the album - tentatively entitled 'HomeGrown' - which encompasses a range of styles from Celtic-folk to progressive rock.
