"It feels fitting that Smoke Rings would be my first vinyl release," says Allan. "When I started working on the Smoke Rings album, I wanted a different sound. I wanted something that would stand out from what you were hearing at that time, but something that was still true to me and my sound. It was a game changer for me and I am just as proud of it today as I was twenty years ago."
