Thanks for visiting the page for my new cd project. I have been particularly inspired lately with songwriting and have a list of new songs which I would like to get on a cd to share! I have been working on the recording with some fantastic local musicians, including Jon Butcher who will be producing.
Joining me playing:
Dave Mattacks
Wolf Ginandes
Bob Metzger
Fly Amero
Mike O’Connell
David Brown
Matt Leavenworth
Catherine Bent
Alizon Lissance
Tom West
John Cameron
Sandy Macdonald
They are such a wonderful and talented group to work with. You may have heard some of the new songs which I have played out at shows- about life, surfers, the beach, or maybe the one that I wrote in memory of my good friend Kay Ellis... I think there will be a great mix of songs on the new cd and hope that you will love it when you hear it!

A portion of the funds for this CD will be donated to the Kay Ellis Memorial Scholarship. The song, "Humble Queen of the Harbor," was written in memory of Kay Ellis, who, with her husband Tom, built the Schooner Thomas E. Lannon 1997. There have been many years of, as Tom puts it, "sailing in circles in Gloucester Harbor," and many music sails that Allen has been a part of. The music sails were Kay's idea! Kay's passing in 2016 left a big hole in the waterfront community.  Several months after her passing, the scholarship fund in her name was established to benefit students of the Tourism and Hospitality fields. An annual 'Sunset Sail and Party on the Dock' has raised funds for the scholarship and since then 6 scholarships of $3000 each have been awarded to date.
