"Sights become sentiments Allen quickly converts into choruses." - Natalie Appleton, Vernon Morning Star
Fresh out of the west coast scene, this high-energy solo artist is already making waves. Andrew Allen - with his sensual vocal styling and groove inspired acoustic rhythms - broke away from the band life after touring extensively, to explore the world, and all that it has to offer. Seeing the world from his job on a cruise ship, this long boarding 20 something has taken the sound of the Caribbean and the feel of the west coast and combined some tight rhythms with some tasty melodies. Comparable in flavor to acts such as Jason Mraz, Maroon 5 and Bedouin Soundclash, Andrew Allen brings a feel to the stage that engages his listener’s to an authentic groove experience while keeping a pop overtone similar to Jack Johnson.
Taking home the BCIMA''s ''Best New Artist of 2008'' award, Andrew Allen may seem relatively new to the scene, however, he''s no stranger to the industry. He''s played the A Channel in Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg, New Music West, and opened for “The Moffats”, “Jann Arden”, “Amanda Marshall” and “Wide Mouth Mason” as the front man in his first band as well as toured with Juno Award Winner, "Greg Sczebel". This “…hot new act” with his impressive track record and over two dozen sassy new originals is confident that he not only has the tools to take the first step, but he also has the staying power to climb the whole staircase.
With his debut album "The Living Room Sessions" having been released in May and his tour dates starting in July, he''s sold over 2000 copies of the record independently, toured and played live in more than 150 venues throughout Western Canada and the UK, secured airtime on the UK’s BBC Radio 1 as well as on Canada’s own CBC radio, received the rating of top 30 plays on the X in Kamloops as well as top 10 folk records of the year on the same, developed an excellent internet presence and following and has been voted the Best New Artist of the Year... all in just a few months... imagine what the next few will bring! He’s just finished recording his new EP in Mushroom Studios with Producer Jeff Dawson (Daniel Powter, Kelly Rowland, State of Shock) and will be releasing it late-March.
