Mountain Stairs occupies a musical and lyrical dreamscape, not to be found elsewhere. A travelogue of elusiveness and drama. A masterpiece. Don't hesitate to buy this now.
Alan plays acoustic songs in a variety of styles from Indie to Folk to Blues. He takes inspiration from a variety of sources in music as well as from literary figures. Imagine Bob Dylan channeling Ernest Hemingway or Leonard Cohen writing tunes after reading some work by T.S. Eliot or The Velvet Underground trying to make sense of William S. Burroughs. He describes his songs as “familiar objects that are closer to someone because they’re more human, less generic.”

His bohemian style is a direct influence on his work. “I’ve recorded music everywhere, in different environments, with an eclectic group of people and in a diverse array of contexts, some less formal than others. I’ve recorded songs in a garage, a bedroom, a living room, a friend’s parent’s home while they were away in Italy...the list goes on!” He’s currently recording his latest album in an old bank vault.

Alan Silva… keep an eye out for him. He’s going to make history some day.
