bio

M'Gilvry Allen is a multi-instrumentalist and producer from Sebastopol, California. His music blends Celtic and American folk instruments, modern production, and multilayered vocal harmonies, into a kaleidoscope of familiar sounds. His debut album, In My Garden, was entirely self produced in a handmade earth plaster music studio in rural Oregon. M’Gilvry’s dynamic live performances, often entirely improvised, have a healing playfulness and a comforting weight – shuffling & grooving, grieving, rejoicing, bursting with soul and asking the eternal questions.

M'Gilvry's work can be found on all major streaming platforms, and on social media as @mgilvryallen. M'Gilvry also produces exclusive content for his community of monthly subscribers at patreon.com/mgilvryallen.

Testimonials

Gordon "M'Gilvry" Allen delivers an exceptional experience, plain and simple. As the featured musical artist at Responsive Conference (Las Vegas, 2019) he staged a variety of interactive music performances over two days, creating natural transitions and authentic moments of connection for our attendees. M'Gilvry is a self-contained creative asset for an organizer. I highly recommend him for anyone wanting to level-up a conference, event, or experience.

My brother M’Gilvry Allen is a musician whose work transforms the heart. 

His music reminds us of the truths we sometimes (but never fully) forget: that we each have a gift to give, a seed to sow, a story that is ours and must be shared. M'Gilvry creates soundscapes unlike any we've ever heard before, but can always return to, again and again. His voice is a homecoming, a bridge between the ear and the heart, one that shortens the distance between my heart and yours. When M'Gilvry sings, he calls us to prayer, into harmony, and in the silence that thrums afterwards, it is as if everyone in the room breathes as one. 

M'Gilvry composes songs that invite us to better listen to and trust ourselves. He sings from a deep place, and from this place he sings into creation a world where all belong, all are healed, and all are free.
