At the early age of eight, Alan enrolled in the Newark Boys Chorus School (NBCS) where he studied music and performing arts. Within two years, he had already performed at President Clinton's inauguration, The Cosby Show, Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall as well as countless other amazing venues around the world. While attending NBCS, he toured all over the world from New York City to Vermont to Atlanta to Prague. The Newark Boys Chorus performed and was considered "Newark's finest ambassadors" all before entering into high school.
As an adult, Alan joined the United States Air Force where he studied engineering, but he could never put down his passion to create music. “People would always say that my music sounds like it belongs in a movie" - Alan Brown.
By 2004, Alan had built a pre-production studio, with the money he saved while working in the engineering field, and continued to make music. In the same year, he formed his production company First Sound Entertainment. By 2005, Alan had begun pursuing his calling in film music composition. He studied mixing at Rubberball Productions under the highly acclaimed audio engineer Terry Hughes.
Alan had several music placements with a variety of music publishers, but he didn't stop there. In 2006, he went on to score his first feature film "Miguel and Gordo Come to America", a quirky comedy about two Mexicans' journey to America in search of a love interest. By 2007, he went on to score three films, including "The Domain" produced and directed by Paul C. Hemmes.
After moving to the Los Angeles area, Alan teamed up with a film music company where he went on to gain dozens of credits orchestrating and writing music for films such as Chamaco (staring Martin Sheen), Eyeborgs (staring Danny Trejo) as well as several other well-produced films. Additionally, he worked with Nathan Furst on the films “Maskarade” and “Act of Valor”. Along his journey, he also placed several compositions on a variety of MTV shows and into several music libraries, in addition to having written for numerous movie trailers and commercials.
Alan continues to write music for films and has studied orchestration with several noted composers around the globe.
