About Jake Allen:

“Allen explores many styles of music with his guitar magic, ranging from lullaby dreams to budding hymns. Documentary in a way, Allen’s immersive storytelling and emotional vocal performance offer a multitimbral journey through time and space. The constant groove of the drums, haunting guitar hooks and the whisper of a fiery voice evoke awe, evoking similarities to the golden era of ’90s pop music. His fourth album, “Affirmation Day” delivers insight into changing perspectives and personal growth through finger selection, guitar percussion and lush musical arrangements. ”- read more here.
