A troubadour from New Jersey, Kevin John Allen has written over 200 songs, including several placed in movies and on television shows. He's been slugging it out in small clubs from New Jersey to Nashville, Texas to Virginia, and all points in between the only way he knows how -- straight from the heart.

Each show is like a carnival ride through life's wins and losses. It's music that will make you laugh and love; reflect on hopes and dreams; and grab a beer while remembering old friends.

John Pfeiffer of The Aquarian said Allen writes songs with "Down home countrified Americana delivery and honesty... Deep, dark and custom made for telling tales, he takes his time as he lays his complex, compositional madness in a crooked row."

Raised in Bayonne, New Jersey and currently lives at the Jersey Shore. His musical influences range from The Beatles and Bob Dylan to Guy Clark and Rodgers & Hammerstein.

Kevin was named Best Country Artist in the 2012 Jersey Acoustic Music Awards and "Life's Lonely Rodeo" was #9 in the Top Ten of 2012 by New Jersey Stage.
