David Allen's heartfelt writing & dramatic live performance has won him many fans, from old to young. His songs speak of love, both lost and found, and dreams that only few dare to imagine. With the music pendulum swinging to more adult-oriented material, David Allen's music is sure to strike a chord in the adult contemporary genre.
Born in the small town of River Falls, Wisconsin, David Allen didn't let small town cynics stand in the way of big city dreams. He began singing with his father in church at the age of 4 and always took music a little more seriously than other kids his age. He always dreamed of being on stage in front of a sellout crowd, even if he was standing in front of a mirror, singing along with Glen Campbell & Billy Joel records. He is now pushing his career to the forefront with dedication and determination, with his debut CD, "...Believe" (1996), receiving airplay on WLTE (102.9), a standout adult contemporary radio station in the upper Midwest, and Cities 97 (97.1), an album oriented rock station based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He has also appeared on "KARE 11 News Saturday", an entertainment program based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with a large viewing audience. On the show, which aired to about 450,000 homes, David talked about his blossoming career and played a song off of his debut release "...Believe".
His live shows are like a trip in a time machine. Playing songs not only from his CDís "...Believe" and newly released "forever and a day", David sprinkles in music out of his musical past. Songs like Dobie Gray's "Drift Away", The Eagles "Desperado", Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling In Love", and Guitarist Richie Sambora's "The Answer" are all mainstays of a David Allen show.
One of Davidís biggest career moves was the launch of David Allen Online (www.davidallen.tv) , his official web site, which has visitors from around the world. From its inception, David Allen Online has helped him get his music to print and online magazines, and fans across the globe. Some of those mags being; Powerplay Magazine, a widely read Rock and Metal magazine in Europe; Rock Report, an A.O.R./ Melodic Rock European magazine; StrutteríZine, the best in A.O.R./ Modern Rock; and SLAM!, the best Italian Party Rockízine. There have been numerous CD reviews, interviews, and previews of his new CD, along with radio airplay in other countries, one being "Taciturno", a nightly Bolivian Radio show.
His most important move was the creation of the David Allen Online Street Team, responsible for not only the print and online articles and radio play, but the work involved in promoting his newest CD.
David Allen's music embodies a wide range of emotions. From power ballads and love songs to out-and-out rock and roll, his audience's tastes are always satisfied.
