Alan Tyler is the lead singer of English country rockers The Rockingbirds. He has also released albums with The Lost Sons Of Littlefield, his ongoing acoustic trio The Alan Tyler Show, and as a solo artist. El Tapado is his new album, released on 5 January 2018 by Hanky Panky Records.

Written and recorded on an OP-1 programmable synthesiser, and then completed at Sean Read's Famous Times studio, the album is a new departure for the Rockingbirds frontman,
which he describes as "post truth melancholia with electro hooks and country harmonies."
El Tapado features:
Sean Read (Rockingbirds/Dexys/Edwyn Collins)
Patrick Ralla (Rockingbirds/Hanging Stars)
Angie Gannon (Magic Numbers)
