Jake Allen is a young but highly experienced artist who hails from the forests of Northern Michigan. His music, complex yet accessible. It's something he calls "ethereal rock." Comparing Allen to other bands is rather hard to do. The music is simply one of a kind.
While touring solo, Jake's acoustic style of using both hands on the fret board, alternatively slapping the guitar for percussive effects, has "wowed" audiences in venues through his nationwide tours.
While touring with the full Jake Allen Band, the level of musicianship and talent on display from the four members has stopped listeners in their tracks and caused some to ask what planet this music is really from.
Jake's skills, vocals and years of experience in recording and touring belie the fact that this musician is only 22 years old. In addition to guitar, he performs on keyboards, bass, drums, harp, and any other instrument he can get his hands on. Jake performs all of these instruments on his albums recorded on the indie label, Dharma Records, and is currently touring with Jake Allen Band in support of his new critically acclaimed album, "Etherica."
