JASON ALLEN / THE WOODLEIGH FOLK -
BORROWING POWER FROM THE MILL (2024)
In October 2023, I decided to write and record music every day for a month, a process which yielded over thirty new tracks. I spent the following months expanding and finishing each of the songs.

I opted to release this particular batch of eleven tunes as The Woodleigh Folk, a musical alter ego concentrating on the more bucolic, pastoral-themed songs.

Released in February 2024, Borrowing Power From The Mill was written, performed, recorded and mixed by Jason Allen, October 2023 to February 2024. Made in Somerset.

Vocals, harmony vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar,

JASON ALLEN - UPSTREAM (REVISITED) (2023)
The original Upstream album was released in early 2003, having been recorded throughout 2002. Although far from being my debut album, it was the first to feature my real name on the cover.

Over the following two decades, I often played the songs in an acoustic fashion, with the tunes evolving and changing with the passing of the years. The songs grew up with me.

I briefly considered a remixed and remastered 20-year celebration version, but soon realised that it would be a lot more enjoyable to re-record the twelve songs entirely from scratch. Iíd long since disliked the production of the first version.

I began working on the 'revisited' Upstream in March 2023, with the project reaching completion in late July 2023. It was a rare luxury to create an album without having to write the songs. On the downside, I didnít have the option of culling tracks that didnít appeal to me.

Iím glad I persevered because the Ďweakerí songs ended up being my favourites. I decided to call the new album Upstream (Revisited).
It was published on September 1st, 2023.

Jason Allen:

JASON ALLEN - DEEPER THAN YOU THINK (2023)
I started writing Deeper Than You Think almost as soon as I'd released my previous album Querencia, in April 2022.

Through Atlantic storms, record-breaking heatwaves and freezing sub-zero nights, I continued my unwavering quest to keep the Dad Rock flag flying high.

This time around the lyrics are much more personal, so much so that I decided the cover art required a close-up picture of my craggy old self, something I usually try to avoid.

Deeper Than You Think was released in January 2023, and is available to stream or download at most major digital outlets.

Jason Allen:
Vocals, harmony vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar,
piano, keyboards, harmonica, ebow, drums, percussion,
corrugaphone, jaws harp, programming, field recordings, lyrics.

All songs written, performed, recorded and mixed by Jason Allen, May to December 2022, Somerset, England.
