NewNEW ROAD - Debut Album!!

Very few musicians wait until they're almost 70 years old to release their debut album. Alan Babbitt is one of them.

"What's the hurry?" says the singer - songwriter who chose April Fool's Day as the album's release date.
"I was pretty busy for 65 of those years," he goes on. "Hopefully, the 2nd album won't take quite as long."

NEW ROAD is an eclectic mix of musical styles including folk, folk rock, jazz, and a new genre Babbitt calls "Grump Rock."

"There are more than a few things in this world to be grumpy about," he says with a smile, "I don't think I'll run out of material anytime soon."

NEW ROAD features nine original songs - from humorous to quirky to thought-provoking,

The album is infused with catchy melodies, jazzy arrangements, and rich vocal harmonies. Lyrically, Babbitt weaves together little stories and impressions, and offers some intriguing, and at times, wacky, perspectives. Thanks for listening!

  spacer Back to Baseball  (Original version)
True baseball story in song. Boy grows up in 1950’s Brooklyn. Finds & loses 1st love. Reflection, Renewal. Redemption. Ends happily – unless you’re a Dodger fan.

This timely tune evokes the feelings of spring, childhood memories and the start of baseball spring training. Kinda gets me hankering for a good hot dog.

  spacer The Perception of Time
What is time? And why does it seem faster as we age? It feels unfair, or at least, poor design! But what could I do about it? Which led to this song.
