Allen Estes is a gifted singer-songwriter whose time has come!
His music is cinematic and speaks to relationships, the world at large and specifically to the magical area he calls home, Gloucester, Massachusetts.
“Our Humble Queen of the Harbor” was written in memory of Kay Ellis (pictured bottom middle)
A portion of the funds for this CD will be donated to the Kay Ellis Memorial Scholarship. The song, “Humble Queen of the Harbor,” was written in memory of Kay Ellis, who, with her husband Tom, built the Schooner Thomas E. Lannon 1997. There have been many years of, as Tom puts it, “sailing in circles in Gloucester Harbor,” and many music sails that Allen has been a part of. The music sails were Kay’s idea! Kay’s passing in 2016 left a big hole in the waterfront community. Several months after her passing, the scholarship fund in her name was established to benefit students of the Tourism and Hospitality fields. An annual ‘Sunset Sail and Party on the Dock’ has raised funds for the scholarship and since then 6 scholarships of $3000 each have been awarded to date.
Allen’s music is instantly memorable, the kind of music that stays with you, the kind you can’t get out of your head. Allen says, “These new songs deserve to be out in the world, and hopefully you will share our vision.” We hope you will get involved and support this new record project! Rewards range from a “Sincere Thank You” to a House Concert with many levels of support in between, including a private lesson with Allen for those budding singer-songwriters- wouldn’t that make a great gift!
