Hello my name is Alan Ballard. I am a musician/Singer/Songwriter from North Carolina who likes to play and record my own music. I do so from home when I'm not at work. I really hope people enjoy my music. And if you do. Please consider sharing with your friends. Thank you for listening.
P.s. I used to go by the name of Guitarzan and the Fretters. A name I use on Reverbnation and Soundcloud. I still have those pages if you'd like to check those out. Just Google the name ""Guitarzan and the Fretters"" to get the links. But I have decided that I am now going to go by my own name.

This is my newest song called "Time Off", I admit that I stole the lyrics from one of my older songs called " After I Have Relaxed". But since it was from one of my songs , it's ok. The "After I Have Relaxed" version is on Youtube, if anyone's interested. . But any way, this song has different music and feel than "After I Have Relaxed". But here's the link- https://youtu.be/32PFD2hBEms anyway. However I hope you enjoy this version called "Time Off".
