Jayce Allan

Jayce Allan - Solo Artist

When some guys go through their mid-life crisis, they buy a fancy hot rod or get a younger girlfriend, Jayce Allan self produced a rock album. Jayce Allan's first self produced studio album, It's All Over But The Cryin' combines old school guitar grit with meaningful lyrics, and lots of power chords. It's All Over But The Cryin' gets right to the point, without a lot of window dressing that fans of 80's and 90's rock will appreciate.







What is music to you? What does it give you?

It's fun. It's an expression of life and how we are as people. We can share our experiences.

What is your music dream?

To release a full album and have about 10,000 people hear it. I will consider that a success.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

More art, less hate.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Comfortably Numb

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

I am highly influenced by Pink Floyd but my sound tends to sound like 80's and 90's rock and alternative. That is what I grew up listening to. Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, etc.

What inspires you to make music?

Personal experiences and a great riff.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

To just get along with your fellow humans. We aren't all going to agree with everyone else, but at least we can simply let people live their lives.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

I feel good, nervous, but excited too.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

I see a lot of musicians all vying for a shrinking audience, people want to hear covers not originals. It is tough to get people into independent music.

What do you think of Drooble?

So far it is great. A great idea, social media for musicians.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Not having an audience.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

Yes. I attend open mics and try to hit as many local gigs as I can to support my fellow artists.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Not sure. It is very difficult to get people to notice your music. Being unique helps, or release a video that goes viral like OK GO did.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.
