JON ALLEN Lady Of The Water
Acclaimed singer-songwriter Jon Allen will tour the UK in October and November 2014 in support of his widely acclaimed new album, Deep River.
It’s the first time Jon Allen has toured his trademark mix of catchy tunes and folk and Sixties-inflected country blues in the UK since 2013, and will follow his new album’s launch gig at The Half Moon in Putney on June 18th and appearances at the Cornbury Festival on Saturday, 5th July, and Kew The Music on Friday 18th July.
Released on 7th July, 2014 on Monologue Records, Deep River, is the third album of Allen’s career, following his 2009 debut album Dead Man’s Suit, and 2011′s Sweet Defeat.
He says: “I feel a bit like a musical outsider. I’m very inspired by music that feels like it comes from one of the main tributaries of blues, folk, jazz and country. That’s the music that moves me so I would rather be true to that than try to fit in.”
