Naked Demos

"Naked Demos" is a compilation of songs that capture the Outlaw Country roots of Alan Ross Haynes.

Some of the songsare bare bones productions, incorporating only guitar, vocal, and bass. Thus the cd title. Others incorporate harmonica, vocal harmonies, percussion, keyboards, and the slide electric mastery of Vito Petrocitto.

"Alan's work just keeps getting better. I love a CD where I can hear all the words and not fight my way through overproduction WHEN the words are first and foremost...and with Alan, they certainly are...between clothespins, gizzards, and everything else, there'a a lot to hang out to dry, take a look at, and digest here." -David Roth, award-winning songwriter, performer, and recording artist

After hearing Alan's excellent new CD and having some familiarity with his earlier songs, I encourage you to invest in Naked Demos. You will get a good return on your investment. There's lots of interest and interesting-bearing songs within. Alan Ross Haynes is a very fine songwriter: When you listen to these songs the first or second time, it feels like they are already deeply imbedded in you. Let's Eat the Poor and Back in Viet Nam are modern classics! I've been listening non-stop all week.
Bill Gessner - Songwriter/Performer

Ya Gotta Have It!

This CD has something for everyone, but especially for those who love songwriting that tells it like it is, with clever wording and kick-ass music to make the point as memorable as it is entertaining. There's biting political satire that is right on, nostalgic childhood memories that will touch us all, and even a couple of good old-fashioned love songs that get the point without being sappy. This is one of those CDs that's gonna get played over and over--so store it in your iTunes so you'll still have the music when you wear out the plastic!
