One of Allen’s most powerful and emotional tracks, “Blank Stars,” released in 2018, serves as a tribute to his mother, who bravely battled early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. The song quickly went viral, touching the hearts of audiences around the world and catapulting Allen into the national spotlight. Amassing nearly 2 million streams on Spotify alone, “Blank Stars” has become a unifying anthem for caregivers around the world.

Hailing from Cedar Falls, Iowa, Allen’s passion for music was shaped by his father’s rock concerts and his mother’s heartfelt country tunes during long car rides. He has since risen to prominence in the music industry, landing a publishing deal in 2014 and an artist deal with Sony/ATV in 2013 after moving to Nashville. His unique talent earned him a spot on season 22 of ‘The Voice’. Cody Johnson’s “Ts and You Steel G Steel G” catches Coach’s attention. Allen chose Gwen Stefani as his coach and made a lasting impression on the show.

As an ONErpm artist, Allen’s most recent release, “Jello Shot,” has been a resounding success, accumulating nearly 40,000 streams on Spotify since mid-June.

However, beyond his musical achievements, Allen’s tireless efforts to raise Alzheimer’s awareness have earned him widespread recognition and respect. He actively participates in international events, including the prestigious Rita Hayworth Gala, and has received a Caregiver Award from the National Alzheimer’s Association. His advocacy work saw him receive the Favorite Contestant Award at the 2022 Country Now Awards and was featured as one of Music Mayhem Magazine’s “2023 Artists to Watch.”

Highlighting the impact of his music and advocacy, Allen was recently invited to the White House to participate in an event in support of the First Lady’s Inner Strength initiative. This special invitation reflects Allen’s commitment to honoring his mother’s memory and creating a meaningful legacy.

Allen is currently on tour in the US, with eager fans and country music fans across the UK eagerly anticipating his arrival. With an authentic country rock sound, heartwarming story and undeniable stage presence, Alan is set to make a lasting impression on his UK audience for the first time. In partnership with charities such as Simrid Rahan, it supports families in the UK and raises awareness of Alzheimer’s disease worldwide.

With more music scheduled to be released in the coming months, 2023 promises to be a big year for Allen. Stay tuned for more on this rising star and his influential journey!
