I am a reinvented academic who writes and sings in a style I fondly call 'post academic blues', which can be described as a country/folk flavor, with some blues/old rock and roll thrown in. So I call myself 'Dr Eclectic' in order to capture my diverse musical interests. Although
As an 'old guy having fun' I do have a particular interest is trying to figure out what the expression 'golden years' really means. My experience tells me that it's a misnomer for what really happens to most old people.
Some of my songs have humorous touches that come from the expression "he who laughs, lasts".
I love performing live, both as a solo artist and with a band. Back in the 1950's and 1960's I spent many years playing rock and roll with a band called The Invaders. Boy, those sure were the days. Now, after some forty years, I'm back at it! Retirement...what's that?
Here you'll find my newest single releases, a showcase of my songwriting, some interesting photos and a way to shout at me via my website too. http://www.allanmarkin.com
"Radio Creds" are votes awarded to artists by radio programmers who have
downloaded their music and have been impressed with the artist's
professionalism and the audience's response to the new music. Creds help
artists advance through the AirPlay Direct community.
Only radio accounts may add a Radio Cred. One week after the track has been downloaded the radio account member will receive an email requesting a Cred for each artist they've downloaded.
