This Saturday, April 1st - live on the stage at Main Drag Music! August Wells Followed by J. Allen with Ruben Maher
The music of August Wells has been described as “Strange other worldly chamber music”, “Sinatra singing Lou Reed songs” and “The secret marriage of Willy Nelson and Lee Hazlewood”
Songs to walk across your troubled heart with.
J. Allen's songs are folk songs written inside the whirlwind that is New York City... country hymns tuned in to the traffic hum and the subway rumble.
The new 'Worry Not' EP is a deeply personal recording that marks a turn from the atmospheric, indie-folk aesthetic of his previous work to a more traditional American palette, as well as a renewed collaboration with Alan Weatherhead (Magnolia Electric Company, Sparklehorse) as mixer, arranger and multi-instrumentalist.
'Worry Not is an emotive slice of earnest Americana with richly textured melodies and vocals'. - Diamond Deposits
'It's the rare release that can satisfy fans of Dylan, Jason Isbell, and Of Monsters and Men.' - If It's Too Loud
