Born in Perth, Western Australia. Brandon Allen started playing the piano at the age of 10, then played classical guitar for one year before taking up the saxophone at age 13. Since arriving in the UK, he has worked with many varied artists including Eric Clapton, Mica Paris, Jools Holland, Neil Diamond, Kyle Eastwood and Liane Caroll. Brandon is also busy as a session musician, composer and arranger for commercial music and films. His distinctive sound has been featured on film soundtracks including "Alfie"(2004) and "The Look of Love" (2013). He is currently a professor at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama. "Brandon Allen is arguably the most exciting tenor player in Britain today. His phrasing is unashamedly emotional, soaked in the blues tradition." - Tony Hall, Jazzwise.
