Eric Allen’s New “Prowlin’ Lobo Blues” Singles


Indiana native, Eric Allen, will be gifting our holiday season this year with 5 new singles from his upcoming album, “Prowlin’ Lobo Blues”, throughout December. The full 13-song album, releasing on February 2, 2023, uses primarily acoustic instruments and includes a fusion of Eastern and Western styles and vocals.

Eric’s world-weary raspy voice is the perfect narrator of tales about life on the rails and roads during the mid-19th century,  Great Depression, and today in the USA. The tracks blend Americana, blues, country, and bluegrass to beautifully weave together a story of freedom, uncertainty, lawlessness, regret, and hometown nostalgia.

Starting December 1st, a weekly single will be released every Thursday of December, beginning with the hit, “Prowlin’ Lobo”. Mark your calendars for the following release dates:

December 1: Prowlin’ Lobo

Prowlin’ Lobo is meant to evoke feelings of the outlaw chase using the Mexican Grey Wolf as the subject.

December 8: Workin’ on the Blues

Workin’ on the Blues is about the lifelong struggles of musicians who make a living doing many journeyman jobs while continuing to do what they love, i.e., to play blues on the streets and in the bars, – to “stand right here and sing!”

December 15: Fire in the Canyon

The world often seems divided, causing fear and uncertainty about who you can trust. People are told that one group is trying to protect them while another group is trying to hurt them. Which is the truth?

December 22: Short Line Rag

Short Line Rag is about the building of the Transcontinental Railroad in the late 1860s. Specifically, it refers to the race between the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroad companies to see who could first reach Promontory Point, Utah, the designated location where tracks from the east and west would be joined. Short Line Rag’s lyrics were written primarily about, and from the perspective of, an older, short-haul train that fears becoming obsolete.

December 29: Penance

Maybe the price tag for my regretful actions, or inactions, is that my dark songs will only truly be heard after I have left this world. Why should I wait and wait though when my heart and mind are already paying the penance?

All tracks are distributed exclusively through VerseOne Distribution.

Listen to “All on Death Row” from Eric’s 2021 album, “Eric Allen”.
