Singer-songwriter Jon Allen performed in Amsterdam as a part of the Songbird Sessions. The annual Songbird Sessions is a weekend full of performances from talented singer-songwriters including Jon Allen, Rae Morris, Andreas Moe, and Roo Panes. A Bit of Pop Music was at the event on April 22nd and gave a great review of the entire night.

Jon Allen was the second performer of the night. Here is what A Bit of Pop Music had to say about Jon’s performance:

 British folk rock singer-songwriter, Jon Allen just released a new album called Deep River from which he played quite a few tunes, for example the beautiful ‘Day and Night’ and ‘Lady of the Water’. With ‘In Your Light’ and ‘Happy Now’ from his first record he managed to get the crowd singing along. Allen played guitar throughout his whole performance and for some songs he was joined by a pianist, who added some swing to a rendition ‘Dead Man’s Suit’. He charmed the audience with a simple but effective performance.

You can catch Jon Allen on tour this month in the Netherlands, Ireland, and United Kingdom. Be sure to visit his website for more information about tour and where to purchase tickets. Click HERE to read the full album review from A Bit of Pop Music.

“Big City” Lyrics:

Wise me up to your ways
Start me off with just your name
I guessed & called you Desiree
You’re turnin’ into Sunny

Either way you’re just a kid
And I’ve seen you on the boulevard

The world can wait, just slow down
Big city, slow down and let go
And when you let go, and everything is lost
You got a lot

She’s lighting up a cigarette
The visionary strategist
She’s pickin’ out a costume dress
The win is in your smile, and kid
You give it to me every time

The world can wait, just slow down
Big city, slow down and let go
And when you let go, and everything is lost
You got a lot

Painted on a canvass
On an ordinary white
Sunny drew from memory
Her legacy in lights

And she let go
And when she let go
The image that showed
was the picture of heaven, the image of God

The world can wait, just slow down
Big city, slow down and let go
And when you let go, and everything is lost
You got a lot.”

Schiller To Play His First Gig In The UK In April

Schiller has been dominating the live music scene in Germany, selling out shows in the country’s most recognized music venues. Now, Schiller will be bringing his epic live performances to the UK for the first time. The debut gig will be held at the Koko this April. Check out the full press release below.

After conquering his home country of Germany, ambient-electronica producer Schiller is set to play his much anticipated debut UK gig at Koko this April.

The project of German producer Christopher von Deylen, Schiller has quickly established him as one of Germany’s biggest live acts – playing over 300 sold out concerts to widespread critical acclaim. Uniting classic electro influences such as Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream with modern electronic music, Schiller has developed a visionary sound that has captured the attentions of many. This has included such revered acts as Depeche Mode, for whom he supported at their final concert of their 2006 world tour, the Pet Shop Boys and Mike Oldfield. The latter is part of a growing list of collaborators who Schiller has worked with – a list that includes Sarah Brightman, Lang Lang and Midge Ure to name but a few. A prolific and forward thinking artist, Schiller has released numerous singles and albums leading him to picking up nine gold records, 3 platinum awards and being handed the Opus Award for best sound design.

Back with his new album Sun, Schiller is embarking on a lengthy tour which will see him grace the UK for the first time. Set to play the stunning London venue Koko, Schiller will play a collection of his classic hits, including ‘Das Glockenspiel’ and ‘I Feel You’, as well as tracks from the new album. The night also promises to include remarkable visuals and a new live set-up from Schiller’s band. Support will showcase a selection of the hottest UK talent, from DJ’s to electronic producers.
