      Alan Doyle

      with Fortunate Ones
      Alan Doyle, actor, producer, newlyminted bestselling author, and best known as lead singer for Newfoundlands beloved Great Big Sea these past 20+ years, is set to release his second solo album, So Lets Go, on January 20. Title-track lead single So Lets Go, is a rousing rallying cry thats only further proof of Doyles ability to draw the listener under his banner. Equally adept at drawing a crowd, Doyle will be embarking on a North American tour upon album release.Made in collaboration with Thomas Tawgs Salter (Lights, Walk Off The Earth), Jerrod Bettis (Adele, Serena Ryder), Gordie Sampson (Keith Urban, Willie Nelson), and Joe Zook (OneRepublic, Katy Perry), the album follows Doyles first solo outing, Boy On Bridge, released in 2012. If theres an over-arching theme on this record, its one of optimismnot that this is in contrast to my previous doomladen songs! laughs Doyle, who says this album is freer than Boy On Bridge in the respect of being open to all influences. On my last solo record I wanted to explore musical backyards of friends of mine in different parts of the musical world. It was as much a physical as a musical journey away from home. On So Lets Go, folks will hear much more stuff from my backyard and all the traditional and Celtic influences I grew up with, married with the most contemporary collaborators out there. A non-traditional marriage for Doyle was writing his first book simultaneously with the album, the best-selling memoir Where I Belong, released last month.The albums eponymous song is consistent with Alan Doyles ethos: were lucky to be here so lets 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. The album also gets reflective in moments, such as the plaintive Laying Down To Perish, inspired by a visit to Fogo Island. As a whole, So Lets Go remains consistent with Alan Doyles enthusiasm for the wider world combined with a love for the comfort of home.Alan Doyle hails from Petty Harbour, NL, and formed Great Big Sea in 1993 with Sean McCann, Bob Hallett, and Darrell Power, in which they fused traditional Newfoundland music with their own pop sensibilities. 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 Lets Go continues to cement Alan Doyles reputation as one of our countrys most treasured musicians and storytellers. I always want people to have the greatest night of their life when the house lights go down.
