Additional Info

J. Allen is the reclusive songwriter and founding member of Brooklyn's spacey folk outfit Meanwhiles. His latest 9 song LP, 'Wonder City' is a true 'solo' record on which he writes, plays, and sings all of the parts himself.. except for the street noise and subway rumble. He captures those 'on location' with film production microphones and portable recording equipment. In an affecting combination of sound design and intimate performance each track blends together recordings from different sonic spaces, resulting in a cinematic landscape of a song. A verse might take place on a rainy street...a chorus in a quiet bedroom. Allen has recently returned to New York from a 22 city European tour, and performances at the Canadian Music Festival in Toronto and the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg .
