Lance Allen - Melody Maker

The Songs Blue Ireland (Featuring Phil Keaggy)

This song is inspired from a trip to London. One that I’ll never forget. We descended, and the pilot said we were over Ireland. I looked out the window and saw nothing but blue. It was the sea of blue and barely what I imagined Ireland looking like from above. My appreciation for Irish music is what may have led to this song! Not only did I record a neat song, It was a dream come true to record with Phil Keaggy. He has been a guitar influence to me since my teenage years. His contribution here is really amazing! You can hear his unique styling and percussive tapping.  If you listen carefully you can here a touch of Ebow, which Phil is known for using.

Fingernail Moon My son and I love looking at the moon and its wonder. When its just right it can appear to look like a fingernail. I think this pretty song was deserving of a title that give credit to something so beautiful in the sky.

I Love You Lullaby Inspired by a book that was read during my son’s younger days. This is a perfect example of a lullaby. Experience a memory when listening.

Landon Boy Another dedication to my awesome son. When he was born this is the first song he heard. As he glanced around, I know he was listening.

Melody Maker I think this song gives me a sense of purpose. Now that I have a catalog of guitar music, this seemed to be very fitting. Melody Maker is certainly melodic and a song that has my signature.

Ode To Batson This is another song where it was inspired by a guitar. My friends Cory and Grant, have built some amazing guitars which are unique.  Batson Guitars

O’Farely’s Waltz O’Farely is the psuedo-name that I have given my friend, Michael Farley. He loves Irish music and DADGAD tuning. This song is just that. A bit of Irish, and in a special tuning called DADGAD. Mr. O’Farley has been a wonderful influence to me as a friend and mentor.

Pacific Drive The title Pacific drive came from a memory of driving the PCH (pacific coast highway) It is a grooving beautiful drive and deserving of a fun guitar song.

Pura Vida Pura vida in Costa Rica is a surfers term meaning that everything is all good, and life is awesome. We recently had a visit there, and it was an amazing experience. Hopefully this song will remind you of a beautiful place.

Sunshine Falling Every Monday during the school year I volunteer at a music school in Nashville, TN, WO Smith music. I get there early every time, because I love playing guitar in their foyer. It’s really full of reverb! One morning, the sun sun was shining bright on my shoulder. I was playing the middle part of this tune and singing, “Sunshine, falling like raindrops”
