The Hat is an ongoing music project which is constantly evolving and changing while Allen D. King is collaborating with various artists. The only constant in The Hat is Allen D. King and his distinct melodies and intriguing lyrics inspired by people he encounters and places he experiences.




Rain is an equilibrium melting pot of ideas for the open minded. Written by Allen D. King, Rain is crafted together with Thomas Hellström and Pelle Henricsson; the full time bassist and drummer of TAP‘n P; an Umeå band.

Pete Brown

Pete Brown is a single bouncing with the energy of an intense holiday romance. Recorded and produced at Ton- teknik studio in Umeå Sweden in the autumn of 2020.

Reflections EP

The eclectic music with elements of country, folk, blues, jazz and rock where the emphasis on different styles varies from song to song.

Reflections CD

The original fusion of elements from country, folk and blues to jazz and rock, with the emphasis on different styles in different songs, is a product of Allen’s collaboration with various musicians all over Sweden. The collaborations are stretching from EP Reflections and single Pete Brown, with drummer Björn Rautio and bassist Andreas Ekberg from Luleå, to the collab on new singles, like Rain, with bassist Thomas Hellström and drummer Pelle Henricsson from Umeå band TAP’n P.
