Singer-songwriter Jon Allen kicks off his 2014 Fall UK Tour tomorrow (10/15/14) in support of his widely acclaimed new album, Deep River. This will be the first time Jon Allen has toured his trademark mix of catchy folk and Sixties-inflected country blues in the UK since 2013, and his first full tour playing songs from Deep River live.
I’m really looking forward to getting back on the road and playing out my new material. It’s great to be able to draw on a larger body of work. The arrival of the new album has made it harder to write a set list because I think there are a lot of strong songs on the record vying to be included. I guess that’s a good problem to have. There are some tracks on Deep River that I think are among my best work. I hope the fans enjoy them as much as I do. – Jon Allen
Released on July 8th, 2014, Deep River is the third album of Allen’s career following his 2009 debut album Dead Man’s Suit, and 2011’s Sweet Defeat. The new album features singles “Night & Day,” and “Falling Back,” which both received heavy rotation from BBC Radio 2 and led to Deep River being named their Album of the Week.
