Davey Allen is a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter who currently resides in Los Angeles, California. Allen was raised in Monticello, IN, the home of Indiana Beach and former Chicago mob hideaway Lake Shafer. His first guitar was purchased by mail order from the Grand Ole Opry Advertisers Collection at the age of 13. By 16 Allen possessed such musical prowess he was named director of music at the Lake Shafer Christian Center. In the same year of his appointment he was invited to Albuquerque, New Mexico to perform for a conference showcasing young talented songwriters. Two years later, at the age of 18 Allen had his first major studio experience when he was introduced to producer/engineer and EQ Magazine contributor Jeff Anderson. The sessions produced a 6 song demo showcasing Allen's former pop roots and orchestrating ability. The next few years saw Allen take great musical strides performing internationally in Germany and France with fellow Hoosier and now honorary Frenchman, Brandon Pusey. Also during this period Allen resettled to Indianapolis, Indiana where he began to break free of his early pop stylings and graduate to a more rough americana sound. He performed regularly at the historic alternative club, The Patio located in the Broad Ripple Arts District. The culmination of Allen's Indianapolis experience was the forming of the band Gypsy Revival. The four-piece combo showcased Allen's new roots and americana songwriting as well as his late-night soulful vocals. GR has worked closely in the studio with Grammy award winning engineer Phil Harris (Doc Watson, Alison Krauss, Donnie Herron, Kenny Malone) of Nashville, TN and Grammy voting member Alan Johnson (John Fogerty, Peter Frampton). The band has also seen touring success throughout the midwest performing over 125 dates in 2011, including legendary blues club The Slippery Noodle. Allen and the band have shared the stage with acts such as CCR, Switchfoot, David Allan Coe, Jesse James Dupree (of Jackyl fame), Johnzo West, and Fran Cosmo (of Boston fame). During his time with GR Allen has continued to perform on his own and with other rising stars. In 2009 he became a weekly showcased artist at Indiana's oldest jazz and blues club, The Knickerbocker Saloon where he performed with harmonica phenom and America's Got Talent runner-up LD Miller. Allen has also contributed bass and piano for blues guitarists Kyle Bledsoe and Gordon Bonham. As of 2013 Davey Allen is working on his first solo album produced by Mykul Lee (Oh No NoT Stereo and The Fortress Social Club) and featuring artists Johnzo West (Miley Cyrus, Billy Ray Cyrus), Elmo Lovano (Christina Perri), Justin "Bird" Andres (The Bellrays, Billy Ray Cyrus), and the Sexy Sax Man Sergio Flores. The album was recorded and mixed at the Fortress Studios in downtown Los Angeles.
