A native of Southern California, Allie Nicole began her journey at the early age of two, when she began singing in the backseat of her Grandmother's car to Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand. Much to her Grandmother's surprise, Allie was on pitch and retaining the words. She was enrolled in voice lessons and so it began...
Ironically, Allie suffered from severe shyness growing up, and wasn't interested singing in front of others. However life had other plans for her. Years later while living in rural Texas, she came to terms with her gift but kept it a secret, practicing in private for fear her family would enroll her in competitions and encourage her to perform. It wouldn't be until a couple years later that she finally worked up the nerve to ask her Mom if she could have private voice training. Allie quickly began to blossom and gain her confidence as this well kept secret was about to be exposed.
A major turning point happened at a Saddleback Church event when Allie's friends encouraged her to sing karaoke which caught the attention of some church staff who told Allie she should perform a solo for the youth group. Allie declined and a week later she received a call from a church staff member asking for her music selection. The staff had put her on the schedule, without her knowledge to sing in the High School Youth Ministry Group of 50+. Nervously, she accepted and joined the High School Worship Band where she continued to sing. The Musical Director for Saddleback Church's main congregation, Rick Muchow encouraged her to audition for the Magnification Team, a group of selected singers chosen by Rick to sing worship on the weekends and for community events. After being the youngest to make the group, she was taken under the wings of talented voices twice her age and became heavily influenced with Gospel, Pop and R&B styles.
As a graduation gift, Allie was given recording studio time to record a demo, which caught the ears of the studio owners who asked her to help them with songwriting original music.
Allie soon found herself in Bill Schnee's studio in Los Angeles and a whirlwind of opportunity followed, which landed Allie projects with some of the industry's top movers and shakers. Allie was quickly offered her first record deal with an independent label through EMI and another production deal through Sony Germany, along with several other deals over the years. She was the voice of Luna for "Stitch's Supersonic Celebration" live show and lent her vocals to the lead guide vocals for "The American Idol Experience" attraction within Walt Disney World. Allie was simultaneously finding success performing the National Anthem for many major sporting events and venues such as the Oakland A's (5 years), San Francisco Giants, LA Galaxy Soccer, Harlem Globetrotters (4 years) and PBR at Honda Center), Hollywood Park Horse Races, and more. She also auditioned for tv shows such as American Idol and The Voice making it to Executive Producer rounds.
After taking some time off from pursuing a career as a recording artist, Allie continued songwriting and working in Los Angeles and Nashville recording, songwriting, teaching vocal lessons and mentoring other singers.
Allie credits her main musical inspirations to artists such as Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, and Celine Dion, but grew up listening to a variety of musical genres including pop/r&b, country, praise & worship, jazz, gospel and even opera, which have all influenced her eclectic style.
