As a songwriter, Frew has written numerous top ten hits with several of them having the distinction of reaching the chart topping #1 position. Someday, So Blind, I’m Still Searching and Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone), have all reached this plateau. Alan is the recipient of four Canadian Classic Awards for songs each being played in excess of 100,000 airplays on Canadian radio.
Alan remains one of the most recognized Canadian celebrities to this day and still one of the hardest working artists in the business. He maintains friendships with many top Canadian artists including Tom Cochrane, Roch Voisine, Barenaked Ladies, Alannah Myles, Dan Hill and Marc Jordan all of whom have at one time or another helped Alan by lending their unique talents to his relentless charitable work. Alan is the recipient of a 20 year Humanitarian Award for his work with the children of Easter Seals and he is constantly working on behalf of the children of this world trying to bring a little peace, hope, love and safety into their precious lives.
During the hiatus of GLASS TIGER, he teamed up with producer John Jones, musical legends Mick Fleetwood and Mickey Dolenz and released his first solo effort entitled, Hold On which produced such hits as So Blind and Healing Hands. His next project Wonderland was released in the Fall of 2000 to rave reviews and has yielded the single Lipstick and his most recent single All I Ever Wanted.
Constantly working, Alan has traveled overseas to perform in Bosnia and the Middle East for the Canadian Armed Forces and their allies and in connection with outside projects, Alan wrote the anthem for CBC’s World Cup 2002 telecast and the anthem for the 2001 World Hockey Championships in Germany where he performed the song live at the opening ceremonies.
He spawned a fabulous “off the cuff” television show called Road Stories with Alan Frew , an insightful, caring, thought-provoking musical journey into the minds, lives and songs of some of music’s most interesting performers; told by musicians to a musician, as only they can.
