DD Allen

After a recent hiatus from live music Bournemouth singer/songwriter DD Allen has recently returned with a couple of gigs supporting “Vintage Trouble” in Holland. This is followed by the release of a two-track “Bad Love” EP in July and the release of the much-anticipated debut album in spring 2020. The two brand new tracks show the coming of age of this Dylan-esque lyricist, who has headed back to his roots to bring something quite different from his previous material. The first track “Bad Love” takes the subject matter from Childhood sweethearts, bitter divorce, peace and long lost love; rekindled to bring a tune that digs deep into past influences, to bring a story suitable for the present day ear. The tune features some spot-on pronounced guitar work at the heart of it, coupled with a prominent vocal delivery and some evident harmonica work.

The second track throws lasso’s to the work of American hero Bruce Springsteen and uses his influence to create DD’s own anthem, asking for love’s young dream to be more than just a one night stand. The tune is big, bold and features some honest heartfelt lyrics; set to a much Rockier landscape and very different than anything that he has made before. It’s a sound that Allen has been searching for since taking up music, the search has been a long journey with many difficult twists and turns along the way. His commitment to his sound is a real credit to him and he has taken no prisoners along the way, reaching his goal with a masterpiece that will certainly shape his future career. The infectious tune shows a new-found spirit and a layered sound that features the contemporary rock n roll fundamentals. The more you hear it the more you will want to hear, a song that would not be out of place when played on any mainstream radio station.

DD Allen returns to the local live music circuit with some major live shows, including a gig at Grooves on the Green in Ashley Cross Lower Parkstone in July and a not to be missed headline show at the Sheling Studio at the Lighthouse in Poole as part of Matt Black’s Live and Unheard series.
