Contemporary singer, songwriter Tommy Allen has re-branded his sassy, blues rock band to Tommy Allen, leaving behind the Trafficker.

A NEW name means a NEW start which means a NEW album 2021.  Launch date to be decided, as with most of the world at present, “on hold” is a good description.

Tommy Allen’s guitar wizardry has been described in the past by the following publications:

Blues in Britain – “Wild neo-primitive”, “Scorching intensity” and “Tommy managed to wring just about every flavour of the blues out of his battered old Fender”;
Blues and Rhythm Magazine – ‘One of the top rated British blues guitarists’.

Tommy Allen’s NEW album is a diverse, hard hitting, original blues rock album. Tommy’s unique musical apprenticeship has given him a very individual guitar style which is more than apparent within this new album.  From guitar driven rock elements to devil’s workshop style blues.  Tommy’s approach to improvisation and spontaneity comes through into this modernistic rock blues compilation.

Tommy has worked with a variety of artists such as Lazy Lester, Mojo Buford, Otis Taylor, Marcus Malone, Nicky Moore and Sugababes.

The band

The heart of the band and their music ventures beyond the blues stereotypes with their contemporary guitar driven gutsy blues rock, that inspires the soul.

The band’s music is rooted within the blues through Tommy’s own influences, for example, Robert Johnson and BB King to name a few. However, it’s in Tommy’s own interpretation of these artists that the crossover really begins to take place and it’s his individual adaptation that adds a distinct edge to his music. 


Tommy believes in composing his own original material and thrives on the importance of pushing the band’s authentic music forward, whilst mixing it together with a handful of classic blues master pieces which are twisted into the modern, hard hitting sound that the band deliver so effectively.
