“It has been the honor of a lifetime to have been invited, by my dear friend, to be so deeply involved with “The Secret”. Between having my song, “I Can’t Get There From Here” share the stage with so many other wonderful works, to designing the album cover and inside art, to being able to collaborate with Alan, Lisa, and the amazing musicians, and audio wizards, who comprise his band, and production team, on our two videos… 
I would say I’ve reached the summit, but for the fact that I’m pretty sure the magician known as Alan Parsons has quite a few more tricks up his sleeve,” says director Patrick Read Johnson.

Alan’s longtime hobby has been performing magic and this brand new album showcases his own passion for the craft, hence the title “The Secret.” The album sees a return to the pop rock sound with symphonic and progressive rock interludes which the Alan Parsons Project was known for. 
 
With his long-standing previous APP collaborators, guitarist Ian Bairnson, drummer Stuart Elliott and orchestral arranger Andrew Powell, Alan dropped the “Project” identity for AlanParsons’ “Try Anything Once” in 1994. The partnership continued for “On Air” in 1996 and “The Time Machine” in 1999. During this time, the first incarnation of “Alan ParsonsLive Project” toured extensively all over the globe. Following Alan’s relocation to California in 1999, a brand new Live Project band was formed in 2003. Another band reshuffle happened in 2010. The current live band consists of Alan on acoustic guitar, keyboards and vocals, P.J. Olsson on vocals, Tom Brooks on keyboards, Guy Erez on bass, Jeff Kollman on guitar and vocals, Danny Thompson on drums, Todd Cooper on sax, percussion and vocals, Dan Tracey on guitar and vocals.
 
Parsons’ last album “A Valid Path”, a unique foray into the world of electronica, was released in 2004.
