California soul collective ‘Allensworth’ drops new album with east coast tour

Hailing from Southern California, Jamie Allensworth and his eponymous musical collective fuse rock and soul with true-life anthemic song writing. His playbook dives deeply into the soul tradition of James Brown, Otis Redding, and Curtis Mayfield, and updates that tradition along the lines of Alabama Shakes, Michael Kiwanuka, with an added psychedelic twist.

No stranger to these shores, Allensworth is making the journey to Australia this May to launch the ingeniously titled album 'Albumsworth' with shows and festivals up and down the East Coast. The tour features his long-standing Australian band which includes members of Hussy Hicks, Cheap Fakes, and Band of Frequencies to name a few.

"No song should last much more than two minutes" was the initial idea for Allensworth's new Album, and it was recorded at a cracking pace over three late night sessions at Lovestreet Studios on Queensland's Gold Coast. The two-minute rule stood true for a few tracks but evolved and lengthened as the final versions were put to bed. This ethos has resulted in a lean album which cuts straight to the song, and to the groove.

The tour includes stop-offs at Gumball, Culburra, and Broadbeach Festivals along with some of the best live music venues in the country.

Albumsworth is out 19th April 2019 through Only Blues Music and your favourite online stores.
