Alan Doyle has been doing Hip-Hop music for ten years & recently started performing in late 2010. He has made four albums, two EPs & online music in the past; now he is working on a new album.
Often compared to Johnny Polygon, Jay-Z & Kanye West, the kind of Hip-Hop Alan makes is described as a tribute to the old school in the modern days. He makes important that the verses are as important as the hook (chorus). Also, he also makes his own instrumentals & mixes the tracks for recordings & performances.
Alan Doyle is often referred as “The Number 4” due to an old soccer number he used back in 1999. He drew a logo, that he still uses to this day, on a book cover while in class at Broken Arrow South Intermediate High School. Ironically, it was in the 4th class period of the day.
Since then, he has used that moniker in his music, uses the logo & displays a 4 finger hand gesture. His personality can connect with the crowd, no matter what genre that crowd likes. Alan doesn’t particularly care for the club banger culture that has overshadowed the true, down to Earth Hip-Hop nowadays, so he decided to not follow the easy road.
When it comes to shows inside or outside of Tulsa, Alan is willing to play anywhere. He has performed at various venues in Tulsa such as Treehouse, The Shrine, Back Alley Blues & BBQ, Crystal Pistol Saloon (now known as The Yeti), 33forty, Red Ultra Lounge, The Vanguard, Haze & many more. His performance at the Free Tulsa Music Festival was one of the best & talked about performances throughout the two day festival in July 2012. Outside of Tulsa, he has performed at the American Legion post #4 in Enid, OK, The Buzz Hookah & The Compound in Bixby, OK, Ruthie’s Last Call & Bad Granny’s Bazaar in Oklahoma City, OK, The Boiler Room in Dallas, TX, Backwoods Austin in Austin, TX & The Cellar in Fort Worth, TX. Plus, he has also opened for national artists such as Lega-C, P.D.A., Afroman, Matt Maddox & Johnny Polygon in 2012.
This 2013 Absolute Best of Tulsa winner, 2012 nominee for Hip-Hop (Urban Tulsa Weekly) & three-time award Oasis Music Awards winner (www.oasismusiccharts.com) is hoping to build on what he has accomplished so far on his music, along with helping his crew, The Outsiders on building their names in the Oklahoma music scene. Stay tuned on what this man can bring to music.
Now, that you read the bio, enjoy the music!
