The talented singer/songwriter fuses R&B, Pop, Rock, Folk, and Country in his songs of love, life, hurt, and growth; all things he experienced while creating this record. “I want to be able to stimulate the mind, body, and soul of listeners, ring into their hearts, just as those that I grew to admire did,” says Allen about the new project.“I try to capture that raw emotion in my music where listeners can engage and relate,” he adds.
