“Us Together” Reviews and Such

Hey Folks,

I got this really nice review from Minor 7th.



Lance Allen “Us Together,” 2014 As a member of the Thumb-pickers Hall of Fame, Lance Allen stands alongside Tommy Emmanuel, Chet Atkins, Doc Watson and Pat Kirtley. Very impressive shoulders to rub against. On first listen to Allen’s new release, “Us Together,” it becomes clear that the honor was bestowed appropriately. The pristine sound of fingers cascading (thumb included) the length and breadth of the fret board demonstrate the elegance and grace of a consummate player with chops and a sense of composition that borrows from the for mentioned Emmanuel and Atkins yet evolves into a distinct style all his own. The soundscape seems to build in energy throughout, beginning with the title track, a delightfully and charming melody, and finishing with the dark and pulsating “Dead Weather.” Thumbs up all the way around for Allen’s third CD release “Us Together.” © James Filkins

 

Such a nice review, that I’d encourage you to go and buy the album.   Us Together – Lance Allen

If you get a chance, it would also be helpful if you left a review on my music on iTunes, amazon, or wherever my music is sold.

I start recording tomorrow, Friday 24th on my newest cd, “Melody Maker”. There will be a few surprise guests on my cd as well. I’m looking forward to announcing that at some point.

Also, don’t forget to create a Lance Allen station on Pandora Radio. Just search Lance Allen or click on Lance Allen Radio.
