"Deviant Motions is the third record from Michigans ethereal-alternative rock artist,
Jake Allen. He spent five laborious years crafting the album, interwoven with
continuous nationwide tours opening for and playing in the Sony Masterworks band,
The Accidentals. Allen, who is primarily known for his percussive fingerstyle guitar
work and visceral solo performances, goes deeper into the vastly melodic territory he
began exploring in his 2011 LP, Etherica. Playing all of the instruments and producing
the record himself, Deviant Motions came to be an impenetrable wall of sound.
Supporting the albums fourteen track sequence is an underbelly of impressive
instrumental prowess. Throw in some tasteful violin and cello performances by
The Accidentals and the result is a dynamic record that will be embraced by pop
music listeners and discerning prog-rock connoisseurs alike. ""Allens masterful
guitar work and polished production in the 14-track album deserve rewarding accolades.
