Alan Getto is a folk/rock singer-songwriter based in Pittsburgh. He moved from Brooklyn in 2017 to a farmhouse outside Pittsburgh to release his album "Versus" and to go on tour. Since then Alan has been playing shows around Pittsburgh and is releasing new songs in 2019.
Similar to his upbringing in rural parts of the Northeast and Midwest, Alan’s songs often have a rural soundscape: acoustic guitar, fiddle, harmonica, etc. In Brooklyn, however, his music started to resemble city life: electric, eclectic—consisting sometimes of fuzzed-out electric guitar, bass, drums, organ, etc. At bottom, his instrumentation provides a setting for his lyrics.
Alan’s lyrics are often literary (he studied literature in college), but have simplicity and poetry at heart. This aspect mirrors some early influences: Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, David Bowie. His lyrics and sound seat Alan’s music alongside contemporary artists like Big Thief, Deer Tick, Andrew Bird, and Lady Lamb.
Alan has two releases out: All Different Times, released in 2015; and Versus, released in 2017. Like these releases, Alan sometimes plays acoustic or electric, solo or with accompaniment.
“Inspired by paradoxical elements of life and examining his own transition into his current lifestyle, Alan Getto finds a perfect balance between various dualities through his artistic expression.”
