about

Nova Scotian Alt-rock Troubadour, Sperry Alan is ABOUT TO RELEASE an exciting new LP, “Raw With Intent”.

Introspective and emotional lyrics are blended with interesting musical progressions to paint a truthful story of growth and perseverance. This is a great album for listeners who enjoy music that digs below the surface of daily life and braves to be honest in all aspects of it’s production and delivery.

- - -

Sperry Alan stays true to a gritty and heart rendering sound. His delivery at times holds relics of Lou Reed and Bob Dylan, that uncanny ability to sing songs which sound spoken at the same time. ~ “This Is Not Radio”
