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.

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.
