Alan Doyle has been doing Hip-Hop music for nine years & recently started performing in late 2010. He has made three CDs & online music in the past; now he is working on a current album & an EP.
Often compared to Johnny Polygon, Jay-Z & Kanye West, the kind of Hip-Hop Alan makes is described as a tribute to the old school in the modern days. He makes important that the verses are as important as the hook (chorus). Also, he also makes his own instrumentals & mixes the tracks for recordings & performances.
Alan Doyle is often referred as “The Number 4” due to an old soccer number he used back in 1999. He drew a logo, that he still uses to this day, on a book cover while in class at Broken Arrow South Intermediate High School. Ironically, it was in the 4th class period of the day.
Since then, he has used that moniker in his music, uses the logo & displays a 4 finger hand gesture. His personality can connect with the crowd, no matter what genre that crowd likes. Alan doesn’t particularly care for the club banger culture that has overshadowed the true, down to Earth Hip-Hop nowadays, so he decided to not follow the easy road.
When it comes to shows inside or outside of Tulsa, Alan is willing to play anywhere. He has played nearly 40 shows in 2011. Venues such as Bora Bora Club & Venue (OKC), Reverb, Movement918 Dance Studio, Crystal Pistol Saloon, Junkie Live, Cronies, Eclipse Cultural House, Lt. Dan's, Phoenix Street Rising Grocery, Twisted Lizard, The Marquee & Back Alley Blues & BBQ.
As far as 2012 goes, he, along with his fellow Outsiders (Bayn, H2K & Cu-nu) hopes to have a better year than 2011 as in bringing trustworthy business to venues, being & showing people that there is something to do in Tulsa, OK.
