About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To have an amazing inspirational time travelling India this autumn. Looking to meet other like minded travellers for good times and great memories

ABOUT ME

Hello, I'm Al. Im a curly young lad that lives in London Town.

I grew up in Suffolk and then spent a few years in London, studying Drama and Music at Uni, working on Camden market, and disco dancing.I then spent a couple of years in Brighton and studied at the Brighton institute of Modern Music, sang in a band, waited tables and generally had a load of fun and frolics by the sea, then I moved back to London 4 years ago and have been here since.

I am an as-yet unsigned singer/songwriter You can check out my music at www.alanbonnermusic.com if you can be bothered. I also have a day job as a Support Worker in a Homeless Hostel and Volunteer for LGBT Substance Misuse organisation Antidote and I want to write a book but am having trouble putting pen to paper.

I love to travel and get to tour the UK and Europe quite often with my music which is a huge blessing. I spent a few months travelling Thailand and Australia in 2010 and India and America are next on my list.

I love to socialise and am blessed with an abundence of amazing friends, and like sundays with them in beer gardens with them laughing until it hurts. My main passions in life are music, art, books, film,vintage clothing,glamorous indie rock n roll, dancing till dawn or staying in and setting the world to rights, and last but by no means least my friends and family without whome I am nothing.

My goals in life are to continue making music and take it as far as I possibly can. To travel more, to see and do learn and experience as much as I can while I'm still on the planet.

I'm planning a trip to AMAZING SAN FRANCISCO from 6th to 17th JUNE and am looking for an amazing host who will allow me into their home for my stay in exchange for good times, great memories, and conversation. I am well trained in cleaning up after myself and am a decent cook so am more than happy to make dinner!

PHILOSOPHY

"Birds they sing at break of day. Start again I heard them say. Don't dwell on what has passed away or what is yet to be. Ring the bells that still can ring. Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in."

Leonard Cohen
