THE STORIES - SHORT STORIES EP (2018)
Short Stories EP is the debut release by The Stories, a band in which I play guitar and sing.

Featuring five original songs, the EP was recorded during the early part of 2018 in Somerset and Gloucestershire.

The tracks were written by The Stories (Teri Souter, David Griffin and Jason Allen) and produced and mixed by myself.

Short Stories EP is available to stream or download on all major digital platforms (links below). A CD release will follow in due course.

Never Walk Away
For the second 'single' from the debut EP by The Stories, I decided to try my hand at animation.

Just over 80 hours later, I emerged with this digitally hand-drawn video.

JASON ALLEN - ROADS FROM RUIN (2017)
During the first six months of 2017, Lady Inspiration found me with time on my hands. I wrote a batch of 30 new musical ideas, along with reams of lyrics.

I picked a dozen of these new songs and spent the summer months recording, arranging and mixing. Working in daylight made a welcome change.

My previous effort (Fieldwork, 2015) was made using only acoustic guitars. This time around I decided to concentrate on electric guitars. Completed in October 2017, the resultant album is called Roads From Ruin.

Jason Allen:
Vocals, harmony vocals, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, slide guitar,
bass guitar, drums, cajon, percussion, ebow, lap steel, keyboards,
programming, harmonica, lyrics.

All songs written, performed, produced and mixed by Jason Allen.
Written January to June 2017. Recorded July to October 2017.

Thank you to friends and family near and far. We will always be young.

An Outlaw Like Me

Published in April 2018, this is the first track from a new project-in-progress.

Vignettes
I discovered a spare YouTube account in my name, so I decided to use it as a home for my random short videos.

Each clip in the playlist contains one of my 'musical doodles', alongside footage shot with my iPhone.

My 'alt' YouTube channel can be found here. My 'proper' music videos live here.
