Alan Morrissey

Guitar player, composer, soundtrack artist, riff generator, solo purveyor, chunky funky wish granter. They used to call us ‘gunslingers’...

Penchant for playing very fast on other people’s music, soundtrack work and cinematic compositions, along with drum n’ bass and dubstep backings! Always happy to collaborate...

What’s it all about? Guitar focused, heavy funk metal music with big compositions, fast solos and chunky crunchy riffs, calling back to the '70's, '80's and '90's hey-day of British and American rock and metal bands!

Who am I? Started playing guitar aged 14, way back in 1992, early influences were the late ‘80’s/ early ‘90’s LA and Seattle music scenes. Moved from Plymouth to Birmingham in 1997 to study at the School of Architecture. Formed a funk metal band which I played bass in for 4 years. Stayed in Birmingham, got married and had a family. Recently made a serious return to music prompted by my father passing away last year. I’ve been writing and recording guitar driven instrumental compositions, standing on the shoulders of Nuno Bettencourt, Steve Vai, Mark Knopfler and the familiar favourites from my teenage years!

Influences

Slash, Steve Vai, Nuno Bettencourt, Eddie Van Halen, Mark Knopfler, Tom Morello, Ry Cooder, John Frusciante, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jerry Cantrell...
