DownTown Mystic (aka American rocker Robert Allen) cut his teeth as a recording artist and hired gun for bands playing around NYC – observing crowds from the stage at CBGBs, The Bitter End, Lone Star Café, The Fast Lane, and The Stone Pony. A steady diet of Beatles, Stones, and the acoustic influence of CSNY sharpened his songwriting wits and in 1996 he set his sights on a solo career. Allen’s success in the sync licensing industry has been unparalleled for an indie solo artist and includes over 240 TV shows and film placements. This exposure, along with airplay on over 5000 radio stations in 44 countries and name checks by outlets American Songwriter and Relix gave Allen’s second career real wings. His extensive catalog includes DownTown Mystic On E Street, which features Max Weinberg and Garry Tallent from Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band.
