Ways To Win Your Heart
This is the fourth and final track from The River EP, which was released in March 2020.

The song was written and recorded virtually live, late one January night in 2020, as winter storms battered the country. It's imperfect, as we all are.

JASON ALLEN - FIND YOUR SILENCE (2019)
I started working on the follow-up to Simple Machines in late December 2018. By June 2019, I was utterly disinterested in most of the 15 new songs that I'd written and recorded, so I decided to start again from scratch.

I spent all of August 2019 composing and recording new songs, with a new 'agricultural' approach. Four songs from the earlier attempt were added to the new batch in remixed form.

The resulting album is called Find Your Silence. It was released in September 2019. It's organic and it's from the heart. You can hear it here.

Jason Allen:
Vocals, harmony vocals, electric & acoustic guitars, slide guitar,
bass guitar, guitalele, banjo, lap steel, keyboards, drums, percussion,
harmonica, jaws harp, ebow, programming, field recordings, lyrics.

All songs written, performed, produced and mixed by Jason Allen.
Recorded January to September 2019 in Somerset, England.

TIMID DEER - MELODIES FOR THE NOCTURNAL (2019)
In early 2019, I was asked to mix a batch of new songs by Wiltshire-based band Timid Deer, featuring my former Mojo Junction bandmate Naomi Henstridge.

In the process, I added rhythmic elements in the form of drums, beats and samples. The resultant EP is called Melodies For The Nocturnal (Pt. 1). It was released in April 2019.

Naomi Henstridge (vocals), Tim Milne (piano), Tom Laws (double bass), Matt Jackson (guitar), Jason Allen (percussion). All songs written by Naomi Henstridge and Tim Milne.
