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.
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.
