Jon Allen Headlines The Jazz Cafe in London Wednesday, August 4th
‘An Intimate Evening with Jon Allen’: UK Singer-Songwriter to perform full band gig at The Jazz Cafe
Acclaimed singer-songwriter Jon Allen will be performing live at London’s The Jazz Cafe on Wednesday, August 4th. Accompanied by a full band, Jon will be performing songs from his full discography including his recently released fifth studio album, ‘…meanwhile’.
Jon has carved a niche as a live performer supporting such acts as Damien Rice, Mark Knoplfer, Seal and Dionne Warwick to name a few. Headlining on Wednesday night, Jon will be supported by opening act, James Holt.
Released on May 21st, 2021 Jon Allen’s ‘…meanwhile’ is the perfect blend of his acclaimed output as a songwriter, and very much a product of the times we’re living in with introspective and emotional lyrics.
“It’s been almost three years since my last album and so much has changed for everybody. Global events have forced us to look inward and estranged us from the people who we once relied on.” – Jon Allen
Due to lockdown restrictions most of the new album was recorded at home, with Jon performing a majority of the instruments along with producing the entire album himself. “Like everybody else in these time I feel as if we have all been through a gamut of emotions, I think this record reflects that,” states Jon. Songs like “Western Shore”, “Can’t Hold Back The Sun” and “Hold On” were written at the height of lock down and reflect the hopes, anxieties and frustrations of that moment.
