For over 30 years, this songwriter/performer, with his quality voice and his gift for heartfelt expression, has shared his creative gratitude for a simple Western Canadian lifestyle. Alan Moberg reaches into his soul to find words that capture the beauty of his world: both that of his homeland, British Columbia; and also the inner world of the heart. On stage, Moberg's bell like voice and melodious naturalness wraps his audiences in a sense of uncanny familiarity. His words paint musical scenes of good times and troubles, loves and laughter which people recognize as their own. As he portrays personal life experiences, his openness gives his songs a particular poignancy and reverence not usually found in ordinary country music.
Born in Pender Harbour, B.C., music fired Alan Moberg's passions throughout his growing years and throughout careers as a commercial fisherman and a professional landscaper. Each adventure provided Moberg with a song. He took the opportunity to study the lives and experiences of all he encountered. He purposely chose to musically celebrate the fascination, charm and splendour of his home territory; rather than travel the alluring trail to the South. His songs reflect his affinity for people who live close to the land, including the First Nations People who honoured and distinguished Alan by giving him a hereditary name and adopting him into the Gitskahn Killer Whale Clan of Kispiox. B.C.
Today, Alan Moberg lives on Salt Spring Island where he continues to write and record his loving, humorous, astute and ever-sensitive responses to life. He paints intimately familiar scenarios that suggest to people that Alan Moberg plucked those songs from their souls. Alan sings and listening hearts respond.
