About this artist

Posted By Allen Tate

In an age of carefully curated personas Brooklyn-based vocalist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Allen Tate deals in an increasingly rare kind of transparent earnestness.

Growing up on wooded acreage outside of Philadelphia, Tate explored various instruments before discovering his innate ability as a singer with the encouragement of longtime-friend and future bandmate Ellis Ludwig-Leone. Tate would eventually graduate from college in New York (where he has lived for the last decade) only to be reunited thereafter with Ludwig-Leone in the band San Fermin.

Tate’s second foray into solo territory In the Waves is a purposeful examination of how feelings of self-doubt and anxiety are often alleviated by sharing. The album was recorded in just nine days with the indispensable help of producer-engineer John Agnello (Dinosaur JR, Phosphorescent, Kurt Vile). “John was like a spirit guide, sensei, and cheerleader,” Tate says further cementing In the Waves’ premise of sharing burdens.<br>
