'Worry Not is an emotive slice of earnest Americana with richly textured melodies and vocals'. - Diamond Deposits
'It's the rare release that can satisfy fans of Dylan, Jason Isbell, and Of Monsters and Men.' - If It's Too Loud
J. Allen's songs are folk songs written inside the whirlwind that is New York City... country hymns tuned in to the traffic hum and the subway rumble.
Tinges of Will Oldham and Sam Beam haunt the heartfelt, folksy offering called 'Worry Not'. This deeply personal recording marks a turn from the atmospheric, indie-folk aesthetic of his previous work to a more traditional American palette, as well as a renewed collaboration with Alan Weatherhead (Magnolia Electric Company, Sparklehorse) as mixer, arranger and multi-instrumentalist.
