Justin Allen Mercurio a.k.a J.Allen was raised in Revere, Massachusetts. By the age of six he got his hands on the piano and from that point on music became a big part of his life.A year later his grandparents bought him an upright piano and he made a promise he would never stop playing. As a kid J.Allen got a lot of his inspiration from watching his uncle DJ Master Millions spin at a lot of big events and concerts,
" It was like he had complete control over the crowd at all times, it was pretty inspiring" - J.Allen.
J.Allen, who was born February 5,1989, moved out to Tampa, Florida after high school to work with a few artists and got himself his first video off winning a hip hop competition "From The Bottom To The Top". He moved back two years later, and started recording/engineering at Split2nd Studio with Mike Cip. Spending the next year basically living in the studio J.Allen wrote song after song and built his Catalog up.
Thats when he started working with Desi Desmond and Panauh Kalayeh getting musical compositions placed on tv shows like "Dirty Money" and "40 Most Shocking Hip Hop Moments".
Currently, J.Allen is working on his album/mix tape, releasing on February 14 with two other artists Ben Carew, and G Montana, and is pushing the single "Making Love".
J.A does an amazing job at letting his emotion shine in his music. Having the ability to write, sing, rap, produce, engineer, play the piano, and guitar J.Allen is the complete package in todays music industry.
