Los Angeles, CA…April 13, 2015 - Alan Hewitt, platinum keyboardist/producer to the stars, inks deal with Red River/RED/Sony Music and readies CD release with his new super band Alan Hewitt & One Nation entitled "Evolution" on April 21, 2015. Pre-orders are available now on iTunes, Amazon and other electronic retail outlets.

What happens when you put world class musicians together, stir in some rock, prog, jazz and a whole lot of inspiration? You get Alan Hewitt & One Nation … a fusion of great songs combined with great musicians and great performances influenced by their predecessors, Return to Forever, Weather Report and Mahavishnu Orchestra .

Alan Hewitt, multi platinum composer/writer/producer and keyboardist for the Moody Blues created the super group Alan Hewitt and One Nation; he is featured on piano and keyboards. The band is made up of JV Collier, Bass (Bruce Hornsby Noisemakers, The Temptations, Earl Klugh, Freda Payne, Ron Banks and the Dramatics, Enchantment and the Floaters); Sonny Emory, Grammy winning drummer (EWF, Steely Dan, Bruce Hornsby Noisemakers, Stanley Clarke); Jamie Glaser, Guitarist (Anderson/Ponty Band, Chick Corea’s Electric Band, Manhattan Transfer) and Duffy King, Guitarist and six time Detroit music award winner. Special Guests on Album include Orianthi, the Guitarist best known from Michael Jackson's "This is It" and vocalist Alex Boye, the #1 YouTube Artist of the Year.

“This music has no boundaries nor relies on the current norm. It’s inspired, energetic, artful, melodic and edgy! I wanted to return to the music that I listened to and loved so much when I was growing up, which was fusion- and put my own stamp on it! ” says Hewitt.

Hewitt is currently on a U.S. & European tour with The Moody Blues performing at such legendary venues as the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, the majestic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver and The Opollo in London. Without a breath when that tour ends, Alan Hewitt & One Nation will be burning up the stage on a West Coast tour in May to support their new release, “Evolution.”

An amazing group of performers, they will also be doing in-store clinics at Guitar Center stores Nationwide in support of music education. Hewitt is also being showcased on “Justin Hayward’s Spirits…Live at Buckhead” DVD airing nationwide on PBS which has already charted at #2 on the Billboard Charts. Alan will be doing an interview on Premier radio in late April about his CD and John Lodge's CD, for their classic rock division. Alan produced and co-wrote 3 songs on John Lodges (Moody Blues) new CD, “10,000 Light Years Ago” (release date May 5).

Alan Hewitt has made his living painting musical tapestries about the lives of others. Hewitt began his career performing in the club scene but quickly graduated to the production room, where he had the honor of working as Co-Producer alongside Maurice White of Earth Wind and Fire (EWF) for over half a decade with EWF's Greatest Hits album going platinum in 2000. However, it was co-writing and piano/B-3 contributions on the platinum record Cherry Pie with Warrant that would solidify Hewitt as a monster musical talent capable of crossing genres.

Hewitt's list of record production credits as both a Producer and recording artist spans across various major labels and genres with over 12 million records sold. A first call composer for a long list of major film and television productions, Hewitt's film & television credits include National Lampoon's VanWilder, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, Survivor, MTV, Access Hollywood, Tom Holland's Twisted Tales and is a favored composer for the Oprah Winfrey Show (including Oprah's Big Give). The list of accolades from the industry includes a "The Golden Planet Award", Best Score at New York International Film Fest and the "ESPY Award for Excellence".
