ALAN BONNER Announces the release of new album "Night Music" 27.5.16
"Alan Bonner has the means of a pauper but sings with the heart of a king" is what one critic wrote in review of the English musician's 2012 self released Balladeer album.

Since then his starving artist status hasn't changed, but his postcode has. 
Recent years have seen him playing the bars of Berlin, tread the boards at London's Ronnie Scott's, top bills at music festivals in Italy, busk on street corners in Dublin and tour the United States supporting American rock band Darling Waste.

27th May 2016 see's the release of his third album Night Music with the first single Always Tomorrow on May 6th. Recorded in South London with producer Aneek Thapar; Night Music is a collection of songs inspired by London and its nocturnal inhabitance. Songs inspired by drinkers, thieves, prostitutes, spurned lovers, fallen rock stars and chance meetings with strangers on night buses. Songs inspired by the disaffected creatures that take to the streets and the bars of the city when the sun goes down.

It is a record that deals with themes of love and hope (Always Tomorrow, Cleveland Rain, Believe) and loneliness, urban decay and social disconnect (Night Music, Before the Half Light, Goodnight London) in equal parts, alongside reflections on mortality (How Did it Come to This?). The album also see's Bonner flirting with electronica and cinematic orchestration while still keeping his unique voice and piano centre stage.


Prior to the release of Night Music, Alan Bonner has toured extensively across  the UK, Ireland, Europe, Australia and the USA. He has received airplay on BBC6 Music and MTV Italy, and appeared in Grazia, Gay Times, Attitude, Time Out London and RTE Ireland. He has also previously released two other albums; 2008' Songs for the Heartshaped and 2012's Balladeer to favourable reviews.
