Following on from the huge success of his last single ‘The Flood’,  multi-instrumentalist, Alan Lawlor from Co Westmeath now releases his new single ‘Motherland’.  Alan is a classically trained Military Musician, currently employed by the Irish Defence Forces as a clarinet player, and is a much sought after singer and performer.   He has a broad repertoire in relation to music and instruments and, in addition to the above, is proficient in playing the guitar, bodhran, saxophone and tin whistle.

In 2011/ 2012, Alan appeared on  the very first series of 'The Voice of Ireland’, where he was mentored closely by Sharon Corr (Singer/ Songwriter - The Corrs)) and Don Mescall, (Internationally acclaimed Songwriter and Producer).  During his time on the show, Alan received numerous testimonials and compliments on his singing abilities from Westlife’s Kian Egan, The Blizzard’s Niall Breslin (‘Bressie’), Brian Kennedy and Sharon Corr - but Don Mescall saying "I’ve been around singers for a long time and I think you are world class" was probably the most notable.  During a RTE 2FM interview with Sharon Corr, Ryan Tubridy mentioned that he thought Alan was a "fantastic singer, who should have went much further on the show".

Over the past twelve months, Alan has released three music videos – all of which have racked up tens of thousands of views online:  ‘The Bravest’ – is a tribute to the Fire fighter’s of 9/11 which has been viewed in excess of 100,000 times and has been shared across the world. 'Sam Hall’ and ‘John O Dreams’ – both of which have been viewed over 50k times and have repeatedly been aired on SKY 389  ‘Hot Country’ television show.

Alan has also appeared on TG4’s ‘Opry an Luir’ where he accompanied legendary Irish Singer TR Dallas as a guitar player and backing vocalist.
