Exile on Main Street Meets Born to Run in DD Allen’s Infectious Debut EP
Fresh off the back of supporting LA-based funked-up Rock ‘n’ Roll band Vintage Trouble in the Netherlands, English singer-songwriter and guitarist DD Allen has announced the release of his debut EP ‘Bad Love’, available to purchase worldwide on all major media providers from 19 July 2019.
Allen’s undeniable voice and heartfelt lyrics have earned widespread recognition on both sides of the Atlantic. In his latest release, Allen digs deep into his roots to deliver a visceral sound full of energy and intent — a style he passionately refers to as “Heartland Rock ‘n’ Roll”.
First rising to prominence in 2015 supporting an unlikely ally in James Blunt, DD Allen’s debut and sophomore singles ‘Just a Little More’ and ‘Rebecca’s Curse’ earned media plaudits on both sides of the Atlantic and a string of prominent UK festival performances.
Teaming up on ‘Bad Love’ with music producer Mark Tucker (Jethro Tull, PJ Harvey, Portishead), Allen crafts an exciting new repertoire inspired by the rawness of ‘Exile on Main Street’ and the relatability of heartland rock’s most excellent including Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty. “I’m just a modern-day soul-searcher dancing on the contemporary side of rock and roll”, Allen claims. “I’ve found my true sound. It’s raw, it’s honest, and it rocks.”
