A gritty, battle tested, unique modern country voice combined with immense songwriting talent and a live show that is must-see; that’s how to best describe country newcomer Jesse Allen. The 27 year old Iowa native has spent years perfecting his craft in small town bars, backyard parties and really…..anywhere people would stop and listen, to turn it into what it is today…………a sound all his own.
Jesse started singing at the age of three in his parents living room to songs from some of his heroes like George Strait, Garth Brooks, Collin Raye, Joe Diffie and many more. He would take that singing talent to his parents bar in the small town of Marble Rock, IA on weekends and sing karaoke for the patrons. Eventually, a guitar was added to the mix and the rest was history.
For someone who is doing it all on their own, Jesse has accomplished a lot in a short amount of time. He has appeared with artists such as Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert, Alan Jackson, Thomas Rhett, Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Sam Hunt, Chris Young, Granger Smith, Jana Kramer and countless others over the past two years. Now, Jesse is preparing to head into the studio in Nashville, TN to record his debut EP which is set for a release in early 2018.
But for Jesse, it’s all about the chance to share his talent with others:
“I am blessed to get to do something I love and play music for a living. Getting to share my God given talent with people is truly humbling. No matter what happens in the future, I’ll always know that someone out there is listening. And I’ll know that someone out there enjoys what I do. For me, that’s all I could ever ask for.” -JA
