Biography

By the age of 7, Jimmie Allen had written his first song. By sixth grade he had formed his own band. And now he has a single on radio. So what’s next? According to Jimmie, “ Whatever you can dream, you can make reality.”

Born and raised in Delaware, Jimmie’s “dream” began early on as a boy in his church choir. He immediately fell in love with music and couldn’t get enough. He taught himself to play the guitar, drums, and piano while continuing to develop his chops as a singer. During his years of high school, Jimmie became extremely active in the musical theater program starring in presentations of “Footloose,” “Grease,” and “Peter Pan” and receiving rave reviews. This small taste of success was just enough to push the aspiring entertainer to a new level of excellence.

After high school and dedicated to his musical endeavors more than ever, Jimmie put together a demo showcasing his talents as a singer and songwriter He began taking trips to New York City, banging on doors, and passing around his music. To help offset some of these costs, he would enter talent contests with cash prizes and usually win. One such contest led him to the stage of the BET show, “106 and Park” and got the attention of a Nashville based producer.

Jimmie made his way to Tennessee and work began immediately. Within two days of his arrival, Jimmie and producer Kevin Wayne had written and recorded a song that solidified Jimmie’s sound and musical direction. Within a few months, major labels, managers, and agents were showing interest in the new artist, and then came a comet heading for the world.
