Contact Details

Mike Allen

Age: 22
My main instrument is the baritone saxophone. In addition I play alto sax, clarinet, bass clarinet, flute, and piano.
I also like playing around with running my instruments through effects pedals to see what kinds of sounds I can create.
I've been playing and writing music since 2000/2001.
I'm currently studying saxophone and composition in Capilano University's jazz program.
I have tons of experience playing, writing, and recording with my main groups in Vancouver, Ivy League Brawlers ( and Big EviL ( as well as playing with many different groups and musicians in the Vancouver scene in a multitude of styles and genres.
I listen to and try to write, compose, and play all different styles of music. Anything from jazz or classical to metal or rap and everything in between.
I am very interested in pushing the boundaries of music. Get me to record sax on your punk/gypsy/rap album, or let me compose a funk song for your Russian string quartet.
I take compositional influence from as many places as I can, both within the music world and from philosophies, visual art, and even cartoons.
