Iconic Canadian Rocker
Iconic Newfoundland singer-songwriter, best-selling author, actor and recent recipient of the Order of Canada, Alan Doyle today announces that he will embark on a 45+ date North American tour in 2018 to support his third solo album, A Week At The Warehouse. The album drops October 13, 2017.
A Week At the Warehouse was recorded live off the floor with Doyle’s band and legendary producer Bob Rock at the helm. The album is chock-a-block with country-tinged, radio-ready tunes that carry Doyle’s signature blend of traditional and modern flavours. Rock’s own band, Payola$, is celebrated with a cover of “Forever Light Will Shine” – which includes a guest vocal from none other than Paul Hyde. The album’s first single, the call to the campfire salvo “Summer Summer Night” was released in June of this year, with a second to follow.
Doyle was the lead singer of iconic Canadian band Great Big Sea, known for fusing traditional Newfoundland music with their own pop sensibilities. Their nine albums, double-disc hits retrospective, and two DVD releases have all been declared Gold or Platinum and have sold a combined 1.2 million copies in Canada. His third solo album continues to cement Doyle’s reputation as one of our country’s most treasured musicians and storytellers. In Doyle’s words, “I always want people to have the greatest night of their life when the house lights go down.”
