“Doyle’s music is populated by killers, poets, broken hearted lovers and disenchanted starlets, all tied together with the grace of a natural storyteller with a gift for vivid imagery”
-Bernard O’Rourke, GoldenPlec
“Alan Doyle has a sound […] unlike any other new artist out there”
-Peter Nagle, 2 U I Bestow
“A well-travelled singer-songwriter, he makes more interesting music than your average Damien Rice-wannabe. With understated guitarplay and a brittle vocal, his is a soothing kind of indie-folk”
-Ronan Hunt-Murphy, Swear I’m Not Paul
