Dead Man’s Suit, Jon Allen's 2009 debut album, is a testament to the art of quality songwriting.
Jon studied at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, founded by Paul McCartney, who has praised Jon on his penmanship and offered up help in the form of writing sessions. His critically acclaimed first single, “Going Home”, has been championed by BBC Radio 1’s Jo Whiley, and was featured on a worldwide Land Rover TV commercial in 2008.
The revenue from the Land Rover sync gave Jon the freedom to self-fund the recording of his album and his media campaign. He’s toured with KT Tunstall, Jose Gonzalez, and Damien Rice, and has performed with Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris. In 2011 Jon released his follow-up album, Sweet Defeat.
