HERO - 4 track cd single

Should've Been a Cowboy
- 2003


Feeling a bit camera shy


"HERO" Allen's four track CD single was recorded to raise funds for the Tony McNaughton Memorial Fund at the Canadian Women's Foundation. Tony was stabbed to death whilst protecting a colleague from her estranged husband. Tony recieved the Govenor Generals Medal of Bravery. The four original tracks deal with the issue of domestic violence, loss, love, and rebuilding life after a tragedy.
This CD is more pop-rock then Allen's previous CD ('Should've Been a Cowboy") which was basically an 'unplugged' country cover album with three original tracks.
Allen first began singing professionally at the age of 17, performing as lead singer of several different acoustic rock bands in pubs and clubs and on the college circuit in and around London. "Someone said, 'If we ever have a band we should get him because he always knows the words.' That's how I got my first job."
In 2004 Allen began performing in musical theater productions and has taken time off to record and promote the 'HERO' CD, in order to raise funds for the 'Canadian Women's Foundation'
