“Courtney, HHO and CHRISTIAN are the 3 albums Allan went out into the woods to write,” he says. “On Hotel Allan, I set up this kid who has to make a choice to balance his personal life and his passions. Courtney is sort of grungy. Harry Hard-On is figuring out how to make a body of work. To break it down further, Hotel Allan and Roadhouse 01 are ‘Roadhouse Albums.’ The ‘Roadhouse’ narrator is telling you a story. Courtney, Harry Hard-On and CHRISTIAN are Allan speaking firsthand. They are ‘Allan Albums.’ "
CHRISTIAN pays homage to one consistent inspiration.
“The movies I was raised on were a major influence,” he admits. “I’ve been re-watching Christian Slater films, mainly Pump Up The Volume. His character really resonates with me to this day. It’s almost like I’ve followed the same path. I never imagined myself connecting this much.”
“If the music makes you feel, that’s fine by me,” he leaves off. “I don’t want to sound like some arrogant prick, but I feel good. I’m happy it’s done. I’m just a quiet dude who loves to play a show and write music. That’s really it.”
