"I went home and found the video for ‘Just Like The Old Days’ and it blew me away — absolutely amazing — like, he could be in the charts."
— Matt Spracklen (Music Influencer, Radio and TV Presenter)
"DD Allen has a brilliant voice. It harks back to the period of great charismatic singers such as Dylan, Van Morrison, Neil Young, and Leon Russell — those singers that you only needed to hear a few lines to know who they are."
— Stuart Epps
“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.”
— James Blunt
“DD Allen is a storyteller in the mold of Bob Dylan and Neil Young. I listen to hundreds of new albums a year but it has been a very long time since I have heard more beautifully written songs. DD Allen really is that good.”
— Louder Than War
DD Allen sees life’s complex tapestry reflected in great catchy melodies that sit easily between a contemporary Pop rock and the Roots rock legacy that inspired his most recent transition.
He’s an English singer-songwriter, guitarist and modern-day soul-searcher: effortlessly mixing immersive storytelling with irresistible guitars, soulful harmonica and distinctive vocals.
It’s a tightly-constructed, well-crafted sound: full of melodic hooks and a relatable writing style inspired by Adam Duritz of the Counting Crows, City and Colour's Dallas Green, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young.
