Superbly hopeful single Alan Storeygard – I PLAN TO BE HAPPY AGAIN: It’s been a while since I reviewed Alan’s tastefully crafted “Jazz Meets The Classics” album, where he got very high marks from me… in order to get “the scoop” on his new single/video, you need to watch his intimate and detailed introduction to the tune, and his friend Billy Hoover’s performance of the song…
…I also recommend that you SUBSCRIBE to Alan’s YouTube channel, where you’ll find lots of other entertaining performances.
What’s most noticeable about “I Plan To Be Happy Again” as Billy performs it is the inspiring lyric Alan penned for the song… in fact, Alan’s lyrics were nominated for an award…
…both “bluesy” and “hopeful”, this song bears repeat listens… I predict that DJ’s (of all stripes & types) around the globe will be giving this tune some HUGE amounts of airplay! I also found some style similarities to my multi-instrumentalist pal Joe Hardin (who also lives in Arkansas)… it would be wonderful to see these two wizards hookup!
Alan and Billy get a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating from me, with a (perfect) “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 5.00… which means, of course, that they also get a “PICK” from me for “most inspiring single”. Get more information on Alan’s website. Rotcod Zzaj
