On the age of fifteen Jon Allen traded his gamecomputer for an electric guitar. On the age of sixteen he wrote songs inspired by the Beatles and soon went to The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts. When he moved to London he got the opportunity to open shows for Damien Rice, KT Tunstall and Jose Gonsalez. He also worked together with Paul McCartney and played support for Seal, Joe Bonamassa and Dire Straits. Mark Knopfler is one of his biggest fans and in 2010 he performed at Pinkpop. An impressive list if you ask us. In the fall you’ll see him live at Paard!
