Biography

With an eclectic sound that seamlessly unites aspects of Texas honky-tonk, rocking country guitars, and a little southernsoul, Jeff Allen has emerged as a unique talent in the music industry today. Blessed with the ability to tell a story through music, Allen is destined to leave a mark on the American music scene.

Allen’s first album, Raised on Gettin’ By, is his first full length studio recording. Allen wrote or co-wrote eight of the 11 songs for the project making it an extremely personal reflection of the man himself. The title track, “Raised on Gettin’ By,” is Allen’s personal favorite because of its message of working hard to earn the things you have. “That song, I think, tells more of my story than any other song on the album,” says Allen. However, he is quick to point out that the entire album hits close to home and unfolds as a collection of stories and memories from his own life. Allen recorded the classic Tom T. Hall song, “Me & Jesus,” as a tribute to his late grandfather, Virgil Porter. “I remember waking up at my grandparents’ house to the smell of breakfast and the sound of my grandfather singing that song. It still brings tears to my eyes,” says Allen. “I’m so proud of this record and I really love singing every song on it.”
