Mike Allen delivers solid song writing in traditional formats on subjects that are as unique as shucking oysters on Galveston Bay, as common as family values, and as insightful as the consequenses of quiting smoking. His song arrangements are straightforward and the players he selects to record his material are world class players who have played on albums for some of the biggest artists in the music business. His variety in musical styles provides a listening experience that keeps the ear engaged. Players Notes: Steve Becker and Jimmy Burke toured with Rick Trevino in his first three years, Ronnie Huckaby has played with George Strait for almost two decades, Haydn Vitera played with Asleep at the Wheel and has a solo career, Gary Primich has played with dozens of acts and is a studio player.
