Jon Allen – ‘Deep River’ Out Now!
OK! Good Records is proud to announce the US release of Jon Allen’s third solo album, Deep River, available in our webstore now! Fans can also find the album on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Bandcamp and at other major retailers.
Deep River is the follow-up to OK! Good Records’ 2012 release of Jon’s album Sweet Defeat, and features the BBC Radio 2 hit and opening track, “Night & Day.” The album sees Jon channeling his wide range of influences as he mixes catchy Sixties-inflected rock, soul, and country blues. “I just try to write music that moves me,” says Jon. “I’m trying to express some truthfulness. There are no gimmicks, no beeps and whistles.”
Folk Radio UK recently named Deep River one of their Featured Albums of the Month, and did an interview with Jon where he touches on his inspirations for the album and his songwriting process:
“The songs for Deep River were pretty much all written in 2013. When I got back off tour I began focusing more intensely on the melodies and ideas I had built up on the Dictaphone on my phone whilst I’d been touring. In 2013 I started a relationship and in the same year we broke up, so many of the song are informed by the experience of love and the highs and lows that come with it.”
