Brien Allen’s journey from pursuing a degree in petroleum engineering to realizing that he was destined to establish a music career is one that continues to amaze music fans time and time again. He has lived without any regrets since the day he chose music over becoming an engineer, taking after his father’s love for science. In the end, it was his mother’s influence as an artist herself that prodded him to join the music industry and maintain a promising career as he now works with three bands.
Most people would think that working with several bands would not be ideal for any artist, but Brien Allen has proven otherwise as he continues to thrive and improve his craft as a result of the various musical genres he has been exposed to. He currently plays with Altermind, a metal band from Austin that will be doing collaborations with vocalists such as Lauren Babic next year. Altermind’s album is expected to be released in 2021 as well.
Aside from Altermind, Brien also works with Al Cielo, a Latin/pop rock group with members scattered in different parts of the country. Al Cielo is something that Brien holds dear as it was formed under the guidance and mentorship of Charlie Walk through a program known as Music Mastery. The group is also slated to release a couple of songs in 2021, combining electronic pop with Latin and rock.
Brien Allen is also proud to be working with Bridges Ablaze, where he does vocals together with one of his closest friends. Interestingly, both vocalists are also lead guitarists, resulting in a remarkable guitar duet that is unlike anything music fans have ever heard of in recent years. The band is also being supervised by Charlie Walk in Music Mastery.
Best known for having done other meaningful collaborations with other artists, Brien Allen is expected to release two other albums from the bands Arborenna and Perpetual Horizon. Determined to make the coming year better than 2020, Brien works tirelessly, despite the pandemic, to finish the albums.
The 29-year-old petroleum engineering graduate from University of Texas at Austin started his career independently after finishing college in 2014. Convinced that he was destined to be a musician from the beginning, he worked on his guitar shredding techniques until he became recognized for it. If anything, Brien Allen can be considered an extremely talented musician whose goal is to activate peoples’ belief that they can do anything they set their minds on.
As a versatile and prolific artist, Brien Allen looks forward to embracing new projects in the coming years, including starring in a film this 2021. While this would be his first acting stint, he is still inclined to grow his music career first by working doubly hard to create albums and going on tour with his bands. As he continues to inspire people with his incredible journey, he only hopes to motivate them to pursue their dreams without fear, to work as if they were born to do it from birth, and to live without regrets no matter what choices they make in life.
