Having been a shy and nervous person himself, Alan fully understands those butterflies and shaky knees that make
singing or speaking in front of an audience a frightening prospect. He also fully understands the joy of seeing the transformation in others as they overcome their fears and love working with Simply Sing members for that reason.
Alan Morton is a musician, sound engineer, photographer, videographer and creator of electronic music. All this passion has resulted in the creation of an EP of electronic music under the name ChilloHertz, an EP of blues-rock with his previous band The Hungry Souls, a documentary about the music scene called Open Mic Dublin The Movie, two full alternative rock albums with his current band Lugösi and an album is in the works for The Nilz, a punk band Alan joined in 2019.
As host of the Jailbreak Sessions open mic night since 2013 Alan has seen well over 1000 live performances of music and spoken word in the intimate surrounds of the Patriot Inn Kilmainham and performed at each of those nights himself both solo and in duets. Alan considers experience to be one of the best teachers, but that is closely followed by advice from those who have done it all before.
