Heartland Rock And Roll
DD Allen is a young English singer-songwriter and an independent artist who present himself as a storyteller through his music. At first it were the loud decibels of AC/DC, Guns N’ Roses and Alice Cooper that had a strong hold on him before the singer/guitarist got settled in the heritage of true British rock ‘n roll. Starting to perform live somewhere in 2014, he quickly made an impact in the local scene, along the way he got noticed by various media, including BBC Radio and things seemed to go uphill from there. After releasing various digital singles, DD Allen and his band recently released the debut EP `Bad Love’ on which DD Allen presents a warm, comforting and honest sound spiced up with some old school rock ‘n roll. Sometimes I hear Bob Dylan, there is some Neil Young, but I gotta say the high pitched, clear voice of DD Allen even reminds me of exceptional and talented Jeff Buckley [r.i.p.].
When I decided to ask the man some questions, it quickly became clear to me it that for DD Allen it is all about the energy of the music, purity, giving the listeners something to paint their own pictures and the search for his signature sound.
