A Baton Rouge native, Jeffery Allen grew up in band and choir. Raised by his single mom and grandparents, Jeff knew the value of hard work and kept his musical interests to himself until his latter years of high school. He learned to play guitar by ear and playing along with the radio. He learned that his father was a recognized country music performer and while getting to know his father who let him join him on-stage, Jeff was bitten by the music bug. But still, he didn't take himself seriously except to entertain friends and family. Known as the class clown, Jeff didn't even start with a emphasis on country music.
That was until he realized how good he was with country music. He re-connected with his dad and did a few gigs. Jeff describes that experience as more or less a roadie!
In December 2009 Jeff had the opportunity to meet with country music legend Jim Vest. Soon he was in The Tracking Room in Nashville working on his original songs for his debut album. Being in the Tracking Room gave him even more confidence in his decision.
Now Jeff tours as often as he can and considers his music his life's calling. A songwriter and guitarist, Jeff is becoming known for his rich voice and realistic lyrics. Friendly and personable, Jeff is always ready with a smile and handshake. He is as comfortable in front of an interviewer as he is in front of a crowd. His demeanor is confident but humble and he considers helping others achieve their goals as important as reaching his own.
