Described in a Sunday Times feature as “One of 2009’s indie success Stories”; nearly two years on Devon’s finest troubadour Jon Allen returns with a brand new album on 22nd May by independent label Monologue Records.

His debut album ‘Dead Man’s Suit’ was funded purely from income generated by 20,000 downloads of his song ‘Going Home’ which featured in a Landrover Ad. The album achieved a succession of highly acclaimed reviews, no less than five BBC Radio 2 playlists, a personal request from Jools Holland to have him appear on “Later with Jools” after he heard his song ‘In Your Light’ on the radio, and an impressive 6 figure publishing deal.

Allen’s second record is once again produced by Tristan Longworth supported ably by the same group of musicians who contributed to his debut. It’s an eleven-song collection that displays the maturity and cohesiveness of an artist growing in confidence. It builds on Americana/acoustic foundations, ranging from solo finger picked songs like ‘Last Orders’ to the laid back ‘Tulsa Sound’ of J.J. Cale on the bluesy ‘Lucky I Guess’ to the album’s title track, an upbeat number complete with a brass section that conjures up memories of Van Morrison at his soulful best.

Sweet Defeat is available to pre-order via iTunes now and will be available to buy physically from May 23rd from all good retail stores.
