Alan Maskell is a British Singer Songwriter who has been living in Venice ,FL for the last four years . Alan grew up in Bath, before moving to rural Oxfordshire where he played for many years in both the original band Ulterior Motives and the occasional solo acoustic show .

Alan’s music is difficult to categorise , but his songs often tell stories of travel, growing up in the UK, or a commentary on world issues , set to gentle folk , rock or reggae backings.

Alan has produced a number of solo albums and released his latest album  Harvey in 2018.
