John Allen is not just “yet another one of these bearded and tattooed singer/songwriters” whose inspirations root deep within punk, indie and americana music. After having been discovered and taken on tour by Frank Turner in 2013, his career has steadily picked up steam.Over the last two and a half years, Allen has played more than 300 shows all over Europe and has shared the stage with masters such as Ben Caplan, Milow, Lucero, Emily Barker, Northcote and Tim Vantol.
John Allen’s songwriting talent and gravelly voice have been acknowledged by Rolling Stone Magazine and continues to win fans. His second album, Sophomore, was released on Gunner Records to widespread acclaim by press, blogs and fans across many countries.
2015 saw the release of ‘Orphan Keys’ a solo piano album and a collection of songs that saw Allen discover a deeper and darker side of himself.
His fourth studio album, ‘Ghosts’ followed this road even further and was celebrated by critics and fans alike. Rolling Stone Magazine compared Allen to the likes of Tom Waits and Bruce Springsteen, while Visions Magazine drew parallels to Nick Cave and the Boss.
John Allen is restlessly touring Europe.
