Jason Allen
An Outlaw Like Me
Lately, I've been co-writing a lot of commercially-minded tracks for The Stories. Upon returning to my own music, I decided to head in a different direction.

This is the first track to be published from a new project that's slowly taking shape.

JASON ALLEN - ROADS FROM RUIN (2017)
During the first six months of 2017, Lady Inspiration found me with time on my hands. I wrote a batch of 30 new musical ideas, along with reams of lyrics.

I picked a dozen of these new songs and spent the summer months recording, arranging and mixing. Working in daylight made a welcome change.

My previous effort (Fieldwork, 2015) was made using only acoustic guitars. This time around I decided to concentrate on electric guitars.

Completed in October 2017, the resultant album is called Roads From Ruin.

Jason Allen:
Vocals, harmony vocals, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, slide guitar,
bass guitar, drums, cajon, percussion, ebow, lap steel, keyboards,
programming, harmonica, lyrics.

All songs written, performed, produced and mixed by Jason Allen.
Written January to June 2017. Recorded July to October 2017.

Thank you to friends and family near and far. We will always be young.

I've started making short videos featuring the natural world in my neck of the woods, the Chew Valley in Somerset, England.

This playlist is gradually growing as I add more content.
