Rob Allen is a singer-songwriter from Toronto, Ontario.  In September 2015, he released his 8 track debut album entitled Norman, Take a Knee.

When listening to Norman, Take a Knee, I was intrigued in the plugged down nature of the album.  Even when a song is not slower in pace, it was easy to envision it being played around a campfire acoustically away from the greater society. Yet, lyrically it goes beyond such and tackles more sociologically intriguing questions of the definition of ‘success. This is exemplified in the track “Routine City.”

The tracks standing out the most for me on Norman, Take a Knee were “All The Bridges That I’ve Burned,” “Borrowed Heart,” and “Routine City.”  However, I found that the entire album is enjoyable to listen to.
