UK-based singer-songwriter Vinny Peculiar, aka Alan Wilkes, has been described by Uncut Magazine as ‘an under-sung national treasure’.
He grew up in Worcestershire and trained as a nurse before signing to Manchester cult label, Ugly Man Records (former home to Elbow).
He has since put out twelve albums of literate autobiographical pop music over a twenty- year career and toured with various bandmates including ex-members of The Smiths, OASIS, The Fall and Aztec Camera.

‘Vinny Peculiar songs make you laugh and cry and think all at the same time’
TOM ROBINSON BBC 6Music
‘Vinny’s kitchen sink confessional style of writing is often described as quintessentially English – ‘homespun tunesmithery in the Robyn Hitchcock/Martin Newell vain –wry nostalgia, witty wordplay’
