Tell Me is a holiday seasonal festive track, based around the basics of U.K Indian / Hindi music and sitar.
I moved out to the United States of America in early 1999, and had by 2000 replenished my home with some basic new introductions to the digital world of thought. A BOSS BR-8, with 100MB disks which neatly as a tune could be optimized. Pieced together around 12 songs by late 2001, and decided to contact a local recording studio near Woodinville, WA, USA.

Following varying degrees of original movement in Birmingham helped develop the local house scene. This dating back from at least 1988 to around 1992, Dj'd at both of the main Solihull nightspots.

An original half hour slot at Scandals night club, later receiving requests to appear at 21st birthday's, and did so in what seemed like a never ending amount. Byron's Wine Bar, then becoming our sole and solid venue.

Boxing Night 1991, saw a line down the road all wanting entrance to what was specifically house music in a 180 person standing room club.

By the mid part of 2005 had worked on and off with three former members of Heart.

Opened as the only original line up in Eastern Washington at The Gorge, Amphitheater, along with Reo Speedwagon, Foreigner, and Styx. Also appearing at the 2006 Seattle Hempfest.

Radio promotions on air carried out along with acoustic sets, won rotation on Clear Channel. Reached 80,000 subscribers in one night in 2006, for the first ever syndicated online internet acoustic set
performed by myself.

March 2007 saw an official collaboration with the former drummer of John Lennon's Plastic Ono Band, and into the realms of bright light. Attending events in the Czech Republic closed out the 2007, Andel Music Awards, with 'The Alan White Band'.

Further collaborations included 2009 writing partner Anthony Lilly, and was also introduced to Hollywood based friends.

After receiving a number of TV offers, worked primarily with guitarist Rick Knotts, performing on local access in Renton, WA, also opened for Dolores O'Riordan.

Moved to my own home in Earlswood, in Warwickshire, UK in the June of 2010, and concentrated on recording demo's and writing a number of acoustic tracks.

Early 2011 saw the release of the album 'Care For My Own'.

Original songs penciled in and approved for recording by Abbey Road, later recorded at home due to costs.

Scored a number 5 slot in the iTunes singer/songwriter charts in Sweden in 2011, with an acoustic cover of the, 'Big Country' track, 'Come Back To Me'.

February 2015 saw the official worldwide release of the original electronic track, 'Never Alone', along with the official compilation album of the same title, available on YouTube.
