Who doesn’t like Alan Doyle? Artist. Actor. Authour. Favourite son of Petty Harbour and all of Newfoundland.
His solo career after Great Big Sea has achieved lift-off in Canada and now USA and Britain.
I found him in Toronto, waiting out the monster snowstorm that took over the East Coast.
We’re talking about his new EP Rough Side Out. Released Valentines Day
THE COMPLETE 30-minute interview is posted on The Mulligan Stew Podcast
And his tour dates across the West starting Feb 25 in Lethbridge
Followed by The Hat, Red Deer, Calgary. Edmonton, Lloydminster, Fort Mac & Grand Prairie.
Alan also reveals that this EP has a country lean, still with Maritime influences.
There’s a great cover of John Mellencamp’s Paper in Fire from his game-changing Lonesome Jubilee.
A dollar from each ticket goes to his support of addiction and mental health organizations.
There are few artists capable of appealing to music fans of all stripes, and Alan Doyle is one of them. From the moment he burst onto the scene in the early 1990s with his band Great Big Sea, Canadians fell in love with the pride of Petty Harbour, Newfoundland, whose boundless charisma and sense of humor was eclipsed only by his magnetic stage presence.
His influence is now being heard in a new generation of artists as his solo work continues to endear him to roots music fans everywhere. Alan’s new EP Rough Side Out, finds him collaborating with Canadian country music superstars Dean Brody and Jess Moskaluke, while at the same time defining his interpretation of contemporary country.
The seeds for Rough Side Out were planted in 2012 when Brody asked Great Big Sea to record the song “It’s Friday” with him for the Platinum-selling album Dirt. For Alan, that was the moment he realized the door to the country music world was open for he and other east coast Celtic-leaning artists, and since then he’s warmly embraced building closer ties. “My personal journey with the whole thing has been very organic,” Alan says. “When my parents weren’t listening to traditional folk music, they were listening to country music on the radio. So, when I began creating my own musical identity, I was inspired by artists who were able to blend those two worlds.”
Alan is a classic storyteller and this podcast is filled with his stories.
