Alan Hewitt & One Nation Set To Release Highly Anticipated Rock Fusion Album Evolution

Alan Hewitt by Lynne Peters-1

Alan Hewitt & One Nation are set to release their highly anticipated rock fusion album, Evolution, due out on April 21, 2015; and quite frankly I can’t wait! Hewitt is the keyboardist for The Moody Blues and is also a multi-platinum composer, writer and producer. His talent is, to say the least, unending! When he plays you hear his soul on those keys and you can tell that the entire band is in the same space musically, it creates a beautiful experience. As far as songwriting goes, there are only a handful of artists that can masterfully capture the beauty of words and accompany it with a tune and he manages to do that exceptionally.

Alan Hewitt & One Nation’s album is available for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon. I highly suggest that you check out their page too at www.AlanHewittAndOneNation.com and also check out Alan Hewitt’s Facebook.

I’m sure you will enjoy it!
