Napa, CA (PRWEB) January 30, 2013
Legendary eleven-time Grammy Award nominee, revered classic progressive rock producer, music engineer, songwriter, performer and icon on the music scene, Alan Parsons will stop in Napa on his new world tour called the Alan Parsons Live Project. The tour coincided with the 40th anniversary of Parsons engineering the acclaimed Pink Floyd Album The Dark Side of the Moon. TDSOTM placed in the TOP 100 Billboard Charts (1973 to 1988) with an estimated 50 million copies sold. Parsons was directly responsible for some of the most notable sonic aspects of the album as well as the recruitment of singer Clare Torry. His involvement made a significant impact on the success of the album, which garnered Parsons a Grammy Award nomination for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical.
This legendary talent began his storied career as an assistant engineer at the famed Abbey Road Studios working on projects such as The Beatles’ Abbey Road and Let It Be, and quickly became one of the most sought-after names in the recording industry for his engineering work on Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon. After earning accolades for his work behind the glass, Parsons, a true Renaissance man and talented musician, formed The Alan Parsons Project, a multi-platinum selling, progressive rock band featuring Parsons, his collaborator Eric Woolfson and a rotating cast of studio musicians. The Alan Parsons Project garnered commercial and critical acclaim for such Billboard Top 40 hit singles as "Eye in the Sky", “Time” and "Don't Answer Me" among other successes.
