Very few musicians wait until they're almost 70 years old to release their debut album. Alan Babbitt is one of them. He has been a musical dabbler at a very high level for most of his life while producing music, TV and art. He took up the clarinet in junior high, realized he could sing and switched to the guitar so he could accompany his songs. When he was hired as a TV producer/director at a PBS station in Las Vegas to create educational programs for kids he applied his musical talent to writing and performing tunes to help teach concepts – his first crack at songwriting. While a film and video maker to San Francisco he composed, arranged and produced music as a sideline. Eventually, that led to his debut album, NEW ROAD, an eclectic mix of musical styles including folk, folk rock, jazz, and a new genre he calls "Grump Rock." Hopefully, the 2nd album won't take quite as long.
