Picture Me Broken ("WIDE AWAKE" OUT N... / Bio


Artistic vision, intricate musicianship, dark, poetic lyrics exploring heavy, controversial topics & a profound message are the very essence of Picture Me Broken, a breath of fresh air band that shatters the "kid band" & "female fronted band" stereotypes. Although PMB is made up of mostly 17/18 year old kids, they are one of the few bands right now trying to bring back true artistry in this trend-dominated music scene. PMB delivers larger than life, authentic rock n roll laced with modern innovation.

Frontwoman Layla "Brooklyn" Allman refuses to be placed in the category with all of the other "rock chicks" & "female lead singers" as she takes most of her influence from men & believes that women should be just as dynamic. "PMB is not a 'female fronted' band, PMB is Rock N Roll band", she comments.

Brooklyn & bass player Austin Dunn have seen this band through since age 12 back in year 2005 & will see it through to the top. The two original members are now confident that they have put together a lineup that offers stellar musicianship, energetic performance & dynamic personalities. Drummer Connor Lung offers spot on performance, machine-gun like double bass capabilities & undeniable charisma.

As for guitar work, PMB offers not one but two lead guitar players because they were both too good to simply play rhythm. Dante Phoenix & Jimmy Strimpel switch off leads and shred in sync each with their own distinguished style of lead playing adding to PMB's unique sound and live performance.
