ALAN DOYLE, best known as lead singer for Newfoundland’s beloved Great Big Sea these past 20+ years, is also an actor, producer and newly-minted best-selling author. Plus, he released his second solo album, “So Let’s Go”, in January 2015. The title-track lead single “So Let’s Go” is a rousing rallying cry consistent with Doyle’s ethos, “We’re lucky to be here so let’s make the most of it”. This spirit also infuses the heartfelt “Take Us Home” while “Sins of a Saturday Night” celebrates a come-what-may approach. There are also reflective moments, such as the plaintive “Laying Down to Perish”, inspired by a visit to Fogo Island. This collection is further proof of Doyle’s ability to draw the listener under his banner. Equally adept at drawing a crowd, ALAN DOYLE & THE BEAUTIFUL GYPSIES are taking their energetic show across Canada and the US. Check out Doyle’s video for “1,2,3,4” (featuring Barenaked Ladies’ Ed Robertson) for a taste of the live show. Doyle continues to deliver on his mission statement, “I always want people to have the greatest night of their life when the house lights go down”. ALAN DOYLE formed Great Big Sea in 1993 with Sean McCann, Bob Hallett, and Darrell Power. Their nine albums, double-disc hits retrospective, and two DVD releases have been declared Gold or Platinum and have sold a combined 1.2 million copies in Canada. “So Let’s Go” received the Juno Awards nomination for Contemporary Roots Album of the Year (2016) continuing to cement Alan Doyle’s reputation as one of our country’s most treasured musicians and storytellers. Made in collaboration with some of the biggest names in the industry, “So Let’s Go” plays out on the theme of optimism, being freer than its predecessor, “Boy On Bridge” (2012). It is a hugely successful marriage of all the traditional and Celtic influences Doyle grew up with, and the most contemporary collaborators out there. Doyle also wrote his best-selling memoir, “Where I Belong” (2014), while simultaneously birthing the album. For more information about ALAN DOYLE please visit www.alandoyle.ca.
