Al Ancar Bio 2020


Al Ancar has wrapped up production on “Please STAY,” a remake of “Stay,” (co-written and sung originally by Carl Dennis with Windjammer in the 1980’s). The song was produced and recorded in part at La Racna Music Studio in New Orleans, LA with Mike Bass and Charles Prevost, engineers. This song is the follow-up to the single "Wings" that released last year and has received growing radio play in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Brazil, as well as in the United States. "Please STAY" will be Al Ancar's 3rd album, and includes remakes from Al Ancar's inspirations including "We've Come Too Far (To End it Now)" and "Baby, Come Close" from Smokey Robinson, and "Damn U" by Prince. The video for "Wings" is in production in New Orleans and will be released at the same time as the album by the end of 2020, with the video for “Please STAY” soon to follow. "Please STAY," is the follow up to "Let it Flo" (2015) and "Hopeless Romantic" (2008). 


     Al Ancar's individual style is reflective of the smooth sounds of the Motown era.  Al has performed at various nightclubs and festivals in the New Orleans area, including the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, The Mahalia Jackson Theater of Performing Arts, the House of Blues, the World Trade Center of New Orleans, Sweet Lorraine's Jazz Club and the New Orleans French Quarter; many Casinos, including Bally's, The Treasure Chest, Boomtown and Harrah's. Internationally, Al Ancar has toured Japan three times, including the cities of Tokyo, Fukuoka, Yokohama, Nagasaki, and Nagoya.
