  • Allan co-writes much of his music and is inspired by “real” life situations and feelings.

    • He views “pop” music as fun and carefree whereas country, in his view, tends to be focused on everyday life including commitment, love, sorrow, and the simple joys in average life.

  • Allan’s wife, Angela, died,

    tragically, after shooting herself

    in their home.

    • Angela suffered from severe,

      untreated depression.

      ficantlyinfluenced by her death.
