Al Black is a singer songwriter whose music has been termed 'indie rock' by Acoustic Showcase NI. Al's music is inspired by how people deal with and struggle with life's challenges. His songs speak about love, apathy, fakeness and faith among other things.
Al's debut EP 'Proof of Life?' has received very positive feedback with all of the tracks getting radio play. He plays both solo acoustic and with various musicians at various venues. He regularly plays at the Belfast Empire Music Hall and has played concerts at the last two Belfast Nashville Singer Songwriter Festivals. Al's first single 'Machinery' was selected to be played as part of the Hotpress Best New Irish Music festival at the Listening Post at the RDS Dublin.
Al believes that a good song should be able to be stripped back to a heartfelt and passionate acoustic performance.
