Alan Parsons is an audio engineer, songwriter, musician, and record producer. He had dabbled with live performance in his late teens as a folk/blues acoustic player and as a lead guitarist with a blues band in the late sixties in London. But as soon as he landed a job at Abbey Road Studios at 19, it became clear that the world of sound recording was to dominate his career.
He worked as an assistant engineer on the last two albums by The Beatles and after he qualified as a fully-fledged recording engineer, he went on to work with Paul McCartney and The Hollies among many others. But his contribution as an engineer on Pink Floyd’s classic Dark Side OF The Moon got him world attention.
Alan went on to establish his own group, the Alan Parsons Project, and his subsequent solo recordings, which have also been very successful.
Alan has received a large number of awards including eleven Grammy nominations, The Les Paul Award in 1995 and The Diva Hall Of Fame Lifetime Achievement Award in Munich, Germany in June 2012.
