Alderney Week is apt time to release song it inspired

FOND memories of Alderney Week will be stirred by the latest single release from local musician Toby Falla. He has deliberately released the track, Miss Alderney, which tells the story of a Guernsey boy and Alderney girl, during Alderney Week.

He said the title was a reference to a former girlfriend, who was a Miss Alderney at the time.

‘I’m very proud of being a Guernsey boy, and I like to fly the flag whenever I can,’ said Mr Falla, 27.

‘The idea was to release the song at the same time as Alderney Week.’

He said Alderney Week is very close to his heart as he met his own Miss Alderney on his first trip to the island during Alderney Week.

He has since been part of the festivities as one of the live music acts.

The cover of the physical Miss Alderney single was produced by a local artist known as Milly.

After posting a snippet of the song on Facebook, Mr Falla said he had been ‘overwhelmed’ by the support from the public.

‘It has been absolutely brilliant. I’m very fortunate with the support that I have on this island already.’

He first started doing gigs 14 years ago, and is now based in Liverpool, where he works full-time as a musician.

He said he has plans to keep the ball rolling with his musical ambitions, and this will be the first of many projects to come.

‘I definitely have intentions to write more songs about the Channel Islands.’

The artwork for the single’s cover was done by a local artist known as Milly, @kingmilldrid on Instagram.

‘It was special to me to have a local artist on board,’ Mr Falla said.

The song will be available on major streaming platforms, such as Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube, and is also out as a physical single.
