Legendary engineer,. Producer and Grammy Award winner Alan Parsons landed a job at the famous Abbey Road Studios at the age of 19,and was fortunate enough to work as assistant engineer on the last two albums by The Beatles. After he qualified as a fully-fledged recording engineer, he went on to work with Paul McCartney and The Hollies among many others. But it was his contribution as engineer on Pink Floyd’s classic The Dark Side Of The Moon that really got him world attention. That soon led to striking successes as a producer – notably with the hugely successful Year Of The Cat album with Al Stewart and two albums with American prog rock band Ambrosia.
Believing in giving back to his community, Alan helped to spearhead - and was the musical director for - the “ONE 805 KICK ASH BASH” benefit event that further supported first responders and Montecito fire and flood victims. Raising over $2 million, the celebrity appearance list included Dennis Miller (emcee), Ellen DeGeneres, Jane Seymour, Michael Keaton, Don Johnson. Musical performances included Alan Parsons, David Foster, Katie Perry, Kenny Loggins, Wilson Philips, David Crosby, Steve Vai, Katharine McPhee, Richard Marx, The Sisterhood Band, Glen Phillips, Dishwalla and many others.
Alan and Lisa are now on the Board of One805, and live on an organic avocado ranch in Santa Barbara, California with his wife Lisa, and numerous farm animals and pets.
