  • DD Allen

    DD Allen

    Heartland Rock

    English singer-songwriter DD Allen’s undeniable voice and heartfelt lyrics have earned widespread recognition on both sides of the Atlantic. 
     
    His rousing live performances are responsible for sold-out shows, a string of UK festival appearances, and a 2019 European support for LA-based funked-up rock and rollers Vintage Trouble.
     
    But it’s DD Allen’s emotive storytelling that garners widespread attention. In the antithesis of musical cliche, he waxes lyrical about people, places and situations with consumate metaphorical artistry.
     
    “Imagination is incredibly powerful”, muses Allen. “You can take the lyrics of a song and turn it into something incredibly personal. Nobody else sees what you see in your mind, you own the song.”
     
    And with an insistence that rock is yet to fully evolve, DD Allen’s music sweeps effortlessly between richly textured anthemic harmonies and detailed emotional ballads.
     
    Born in Bournemouth on England’s south coast, DD Allen emerged on his local scene in 2014 performing songs written with an equal dose of lyrical dexterity and Dylanesque metaphor.
     
    He made an immediate impact and quickly found an unlikely ally in James Blunt: “There’s something exciting about the music of DD Allen — sort of a cross between Jake Bugg and Neil Young with a great deal of honesty in his lyrics”.
     
    After supporting Blunt on the Bournemouth leg of the 2014/2015 Moon Landing Tour, the media were quick to highlight Allen’s lyrical virtues. “A songwriter in the mould of Dylan and Neil Young, DD Allen really is that good”, claimed Louder Than War.
     
    Yet despite the early recognition as a solo artist, Allen quickly grew restless and went electric in 2015.
     
    His debut single ‘Just Like The Old Days’ (Oct 2016) arrived with all the energetic intent of a Killer’s stadium anthem and found immediate support from Indie Shuffle.
     
    The sophomore release ‘Rebecca’s Curse’ (Jun 2017) premiered on Atwood Magazine, striving to carve out its own space and rise above the mainstream by emerging as a subtle and poignant statement to isolation and despair.
     
    Allen’s 3rd single, ‘Never Felt So Far From You’ (Feb 2018), saw a brief excursion into Americana and placement on Spotify’s official Fresh Finds playlist.
     
    Continuing to find favour with an audience intrigued by Allen’s persistent reinvention, 2019 saw a return to the singers early rock guitar influences with a 2-track EP release called Bad Love.
     
    The same-titled lead single served as a homage to The Rolling Stones early Exile on Main Street period, while ‘Just a Little More’ saw a nod to the influences of heartland rock’s finest with a rousing sing-along chorus: “On the streets tonight, the songs all call your name”.

    But in all of this, lay a hint that DD Allen is an artist perpetually evolving his sound. Now, teaming up with internationally acclaimed composer, keyboardist and pianist Issac Aryee, DD Allen promises to release his most immersive work to date in 2020.

  • Liam Wakefield

    Liam Wakefield

    Alternative Folk

    Liam Wakefield is a singer-songwriter, originally from Horsham, West Sussex, now living in Southampton. He combines Indie-Folk guitar with a raw Americana vocal to create his own unique style. After a decade in the Armed forces, 2019 saw Liams return to music which was incredibly received with a collection of beautifully crafted original songs. 2019 ended on a high with Liam playing to a full house at his headline show at the O2 Academy2 Islington. 2020 is set to be an even bigger year, including the release of his debut album.
  • 27 Days

    27 Days

    Classic Rock

    We are 27 Days, a dynamic Hard/Sleaze Rock Band from Bournemouth. Our lineup consists of frontman Jordan Watts, Lead Guitarist Steven Speck, Bass Player Jayke Turl and drummer Phil James.

    Single minded in our pursuit of creating rock music with fire, passion and energy, we formed in 2016 and began writing our own material. Having completed a successful tour of the Midlands and North of England, playing legendary venues such as Mr Kyps and numerous festivals we wrote and recorded our debut album ‘Live Fast Die Young’, described by music journalist Rob Lowe as ‘an album of incendiary anthems’. Since then we have continued writing and recording demos and have released a brand new single called ‘Dead Man Walking’ on all major platforms and it certainly won’t stop there. We’re just getting started.
