The highly acclaimed singer-songwriter Jon Allen returns to HTH with his fourth album Blue Flame, a soulful confection of feel-good tunes delivered with Allen’s inimitable whisky-soaked voice.

From the infectious optimism of the Blue Flame’s opening soul shuffle ‘Jonah’s Whale’ (the album’s first single, which is released on 9th March) to the resolute ‘Keep On Walking’ and the poignant-yet-hopeful refrain of ‘Better Day’, Allen illuminates the common experiences of joy, love, loss and change, ultimately reminding us it is what we share that matters more than what divides us.

Jon has already played with the likes of Damien Rice, KT Tunstall and Jose Gonzalez and fans of his music within the industry include Coldplay producer Ken Nelson and Guy Chambers. He recently supported Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris at Wembley Arena, Manchester MEN and The Zenith in Paris. Subsequently Mark Knopfler offered to play guitar on one of his new tracks.
