Allen attended The Collective School of Music (TheCollective.edu) in New York City, where he studied with many more of New York’s most highly sought professional guitarists, alongside devoted students from all of the world. There, he was exposed to - and forced to learn - all kinds of music that he had never played before. Jazz, bossa nova, Afro-Cuban, and funk became staples of my previously blues-rock dominated musical palette. Since his time at The Collective, he has been gigging around the city and teaching students of all ages and ability levels. Allen is also working on his highly anticipated debut solo CD.
