By way of tribute, here's a version of one of Big Country's lighter-hearted songs, recorded in the musical style of myself circa 2001. Travel easy Big Man.

JASON ALLEN - NATURAL COURSES (2021)
Following the laboured completion of my album Disappearing Act in December 2020, I returned to writing in late February 2021, armed with the benefits of several months of intense guitar practice, and another lockdown.

A host of new songs began to quickly emerge. It soon dawned on me that I was enjoying the freedom of making music in whatever styles came my way via Lady Inspiration. Recording music became fun again.

This organic bunch of ditties was crafted with a smile on my face, hewn from the surroundings of the place in which I live and breathe. It was made in Somerset. You can stream or download Natural Courses at most major outlets. Links can be found below.

Jason Allen:
Vocals, harmony vocals, electric & acoustic guitars,
bass guitar, dobro, piano, keyboards, drums, cajon, percussion,
harmonica, ebow, kazoo, programming, field recordings, lyrics.

All songs written, performed, produced and mixed by Jason Allen.
Recorded March to May 2021. Released on June 1st, 2021.

JASON ALLEN - DISAPPEARING ACT (2020)
On the 1st of January 2020, I made the decision to leave social media for a month in order to write music for at least one hour per day. The plan went well. By the end of February 2020, I had recorded close to 60 new songs.

Just as my personal musical lockdown ended, a Covid-related version began. By the time Christmas arrived, I had amassed over 100 new musical compositions. Disappearing Act contains eleven of these songs.

It was released in late December 2020. You can stream Disappearing Act in the panel to the left, or at most major outlets. See below for links. Fare thee well.

Jason Allen:
Vocals, harmony vocals, electric & acoustic guitars, slide guitar,
bass guitar, keyboards, drums, percussion, ebow,
programming, field recordings, lyrics.

All songs written, performed, produced and mixed by Jason Allen.
Recorded January to December 2020 in Somerset, England.
