Allen and Douglas

We - Allen and Douglas - have been writing songs since our teens. Strumming, singing and writing away in old railway stations and under canal bridges we developed our sound, harmonies and song-craft as young men through hard work and trial and error.
Nowadays after several hiatuses due to differing work and travel paths we practice and record regularly in a small bedroom studio in Birmingham UK.
We write primarily for pleasure, producing many genres of music . Our latest body of work"THE SPIDER & THE PHOENIX" is conceptual and charts a journey from depression to recovery. "CASINO GAMES" is ultimately an indie sound with an electronic edge. Previous albums were DRIFTWOOD which is essentially modern folk and demonstrative of harmonies and niche song writing.
Other works include "THE VORTEX", "SEARCHING FOR THE CAGED GOD", "NEW SPIRITS AND OLD GHOSTS", "ALL THE RIGHT NOISES" and "THOUGHTS OF YESTERDAY" which were more eclectic.
It would be magic if you have the time to check us out. WISHING YOU ALL THE BEST! ALLEN AND DOUGLAS (CRAIG AND STEVE)

Starkett Levee 
Noel Hattem singer/songwriter, keyboardist/guitar player from New York City, began playing piano and studying music at the age of nine, and sang in his elementary school glee club. His main interest in Rock began with the legacy of the 60’s and continued into the Progressive and New Wave Rock movements.
Gravitating toward darker edges while drawing from various sources with a mixture of Hard Edge, Punk, and Alternative, Hattem maintains a contemporary connection with today’s Indie Rock.
Over the years, Hattem has fronted and performed in local NYC bands such as At The Same Time, Race For Space, The Nth Degree and Kryptic Friction. Hattem has three recorded Rock songs in the permanent music collection of the 9/11 Memorial.org Museum in NYC.
Being a rock artist is the platform that sustains him. When pressed for more Hattem puts it simply: “I don't really have much more to say. I tap into a song from self-reflection and personal experience and/or hand me the mic and let's rock.”
The Graz was born Texas and remembers getting his first blues lesson on piano from the family cook, Jeanie. In December, 1963 the family moved to New York and shortly after that The Beatles appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show. “I was already rockin’ out to Elvis by then but this was a game changer.” The Graz got his first guitar soon after and taught himself “…with a book and vinyl record that gave folk lessons.”
In Junior High The Graz went electric and started playing in his drummer’s basement but found it hard to play cover songs. “I just was never that good a player. I wanted to be original but everyone was into playing top 40 to get gigs. I just wanted to improvise.”
After High School, The Graz moved to California, gave up rock ‘n roll (at least for a few years) and studied the sarod under Ali Akbar Khan in Marin County. Carpal tunnel syndrome sidelined his sarod playing but not his guitar playing as much. “Bar chords are still tough for me,” he stated in a recent interview. The Graz spent time in sales at San Francisco’s Guitar Center, working with clients like: The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Starship, Hot Tuna, Jesse Colin Young, UFO, Journey, Herbie Hancock, Heart, The Climax Blues Band but found the after hours jam sessions with his associates a real education.
Backyard jams in Marin led to the formation of a rock trio, OUT OF THE BLUE. The band, fronted by drummer and vocalist, Timothy Harning (1953-2014) and bassist Mike “The Mole” Daniels, recorded several songs but never released a recording. They played occasional gigs around Marin County and from that band sprang THE LIBERATORS, fronted by Paul Liberatore and featuring The Mole on bass and Martin Fierro (January 18, 1942 – March 13, 2008) on tenor sax. Martin also in the
freeform rock, and avant-garde traditions. Fierro played with the Sir Douglas Quintet, Legion of Mary, Jerry Garcia, James Cotton, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Loudon Wainwright III, Queen Ida, Jazz Is Dead, The String Cheese Incident, David Grisman, Derek Trucks, Dark Star Orchestra, the Allman Brothers, Merl Saunders, The Grateful Dead, Zero, Steve Kimock & Friends, Yonder Mountain String Band and many more.
The Liberators were mainly a live band but did go into Prairie Sun Studios to record. That project ended abruptly when The Graz found himself on a red-eye to NYC to put an end to a long distance relationship by relocating.
The Graz is always working on several recording projects mainly as a guitarist and sometimes as engineer/producer. He is an avid photographer, sometime filmmaker.
