Jon Allen

Those are some lyrics from the song ‘Going Home’ by my new favourite artist Jon Allen. I first heard him on the new Land Rover Freelander 2 advert on TV, after much googling I ended up at his website

“Many miles, we’re yet to travel
Many lives we’re yet to know.
There’s a road, that we must follow
and there’s still time for us to grow.”

He’s got a few songs on his website, some available for pay-for download, some on CD which you can order from Jon himself and one, this track ‘Going Home’ which is available for free download in MP3 format. He’s from Winchester originally, now he lives in London – he’s also playing a gig on the 22nd April at The Bedford in Balham which I might go along to if I can.

‘Going Home’ is one of the best tracks I’ve heard for months. It’s simple, yet it has an amazing way of pulling you in, making you listen to it over and over again, so that you can hear a different part each time. Be it the beautifully relaxing guitar notes, or his gentle but masculine voice that reminds me ever so slightly of Chris Rea – I think every part of this track is pretty much perfection.

I’m going to place an order for his CD on pay day, and I encourage you to have a listen to the tracks via his music player on the website, download the free track and take it with you on your iPod if you like it. Jon Allen gets a two thumbs up from me.

  1. Hey nice site. Seems to be lots of good info on here. I have a DVD and CD website that might be of interest to you guys. It covers pretty much all film categiories and some music sections too. In particular, the CDs are quite cheap. Why not take a look if you get time?

    If you live outside the UK, there’s plenty of region free DVDs and delivery is surprisingly cheap!

    All items are genuine, new and delivered quickly.

  2. on the off chance you can’t get to London for Jon’s gig at the bedford all being well it should be webcast live from the venues web site

  3. Hmm I may have to investigate further – Chris Rea is my favourite artist.

  4. I love “Going Home” – thank you.
