Los Angeles, CA (March 24, 2011)–Noted producer/engineer Alan Parsons has founded a new group, SubClones, and is recording its debut at The Village.
Known for his work with Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Yes, The Hollies, Al Stewart, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ambrosia and his own Alan Parsons Project, the group is Parsons’ first project after three years spent creating his new instructional 3-DVD series, The Art and Science of Sound Recording, thus making the new album his first major artist production since the mid-‘80s.
“I feel that the public deserves some genuinely innovative music and it’s been a long time since I’ve heard some that truly excites me–it made me want to get back into the studio and do another Dark Side,” Parsons joked, invoking the 1973 Pink Floyd album he engineered.
Parsons has been working non-stop in the music business since his teens. He started at Abbey Road studios working as an assistant engineer, was soon promoted to first engineer, and then quickly gained major as a producer, as well. His career went full circle in 1998 when he spent a period as vice president at Abbey Road. Since then, he has been recording solo records and performing in international tours; with the formation of SubClones he is once again back in the studio as producer.
