Musician and songwriter. Home in Istanbul and Freiburg.

His life began in the Arabian Nights: in Istanbul. There he saw the light of day on November 17, 1975. The artist in him had his birth twenty-one years later. But at the age of eighteen, he already knew that he wanted to become a musician and write songs. He was ready to realize his dreams against all adversities and all the obstacles that are placed in his way and to walk his way unruly.

The ingredients for his music consist of Rock – or rather Alternative Rock, but it sounds quite melodic – with a good dose of guitars, occasionally a dash of Metal and Punk Rock, backed by energetic drums, partly playful bass runs and his unmistakable harsh Voice. And his songs are in English. So it came to his English artist name: AL Page. His bourgeois Turkish name is Alpaslan, which means “brave lion”. And that’s exactly what he is. In the studio a one-man show, in the truest sense of the word. He believes himself to be far less social and empathic than he really is. This has probably moved him to perform in the studio from tuning the instrument to the product ready for sale a CD in full self-direction. Too many cooks spoil the porridge, has become his wisdom over the years, but on stage he enjoys playing with his band. Or sometimes without accompaniment, only his guitar and he.

It only came to his mind in 2003 that he would become a writer. Whether music or literature: they are mostly autobiographical texts. He writes stories about his life. These are experiences that everyone could have experienced in a similar way. But also experiences that only he has experienced.

You will See a light at the end and all of us will be happy.
