Allan Corby fell in love with the guitar at the early age of 13 and learned to play folk songs and progressed to having a trio that auditioned for Ted Mack Amateur Hour at the New York World’s Fair in 1964. Allan became involved in radio in the late ’60s and had a unique radio segment called, “Mr. Guitar Man”, in which he taught guitar chords to popular songs live on the radio. He began writing his own songs and in 1972, got a record deal and produced pop/disco tracks released on Polygram/Mercury.
His talent led to performances in many clubs across NYC as well as having the opportunity to be an opening act for The Doobie Brothers and ZZ Top. After getting married and starting a family, Allan took a 40-year break from the music industry. Now in his early 70’s, Allan is writing with fire and passion. Love Is a Merry-go-round is his newest acoustic-inspired release, produced by his online guitar teacher
and finger-style guitarist extraordinaire, Lance Allen. Allan continues to learn the art of finger-style guitar and writes new songs every week.
