Andrew Allen

Allen’s DIY ability and optimistic attitude have served him well. He's scored five Top 10 hits in Canada, 2009?s “I Wanna Be Your Christmas”, 2010’s “Loving You Tonight” which was lodged in the upper reaches of the charts for more than 22 weeks. 2011's "I Want You”, 2015’s “What You Wanted” and 2016’s “Favourite Christmas Song”!

His benchmark single “Loving You Tonight” was a lilting, sunny tune about an ideal romance, “Loving You Tonight” helped put Andrew on tour with acts like Bruno Mars, One Republic, Andy Grammer, The Script, Train, Joshua Radin and The Barenaked Ladies... with the official music video garnering more than 4 million views!

As a songwriter, Andrew’s written with some incredible writers and artists, including Meghan Trainor, Rachel Platten, Carly Rae Jepsen, Tyler Shaw, and Toby Gad (writer of ‘All of Me’ - John Legend, ‘If I Were a Boy’ - Beyonce, ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry’ - Fergie etc.) to name a few… and is credited with writing songs for Nick Howard (winner of the Voice Germany) and EDM singles for Project 46, Ilan Bluestone the song ‘Last Chance’ that can be found on Kaskade’s Grammy Nominated album as well as the Triple Platinum Italian smash “Ad Occhi Chiusi” which was co-written by Matt Simons for Italian Superstar Marco Mengoni and Latin America’s boy band CD9’s Gold selling song ‘Dime’.

In addition, you may have heard his songs featured in various TV Shows and Movies, including the blockbuster Taylor Lautner film ‘Abduction’, reality show ‘The Bachelor’, UP Networks ‘Bringing up Bates’ and the most recent Folger’s Coffee commercial!

Radio play and songwriting aside, Andrew is a true live performer with an exceptional voice, incredible songs and limitless energy... not too mention a spatter of comic wit and story-telling ability that helps create a dynamic and interactive live show. He's definitely an artist that embodies the term 'live'.

Julia Allen

With nearly 10 years experience in the music industry, Julia Allen is the definition of a self-made woman, and she’s got the artists, and the hits to prove it.

Having never ‘managed’ an artist prior to Andrew Allen (also her husband), critics were quick to use the word ‘can’t’, but Julia quickly turned that to ‘can’ when she successfully created and navigated 3 cross-Canada tours, 3 UK tours, and helped Andrew catch his first two top 10 singles which turned into a major label record deal with EPIC records in the US and a worldwide publishing deal with SONY/ATV. Following this success, she adapted her role to provide day to day tour management, ensuring Andrew, and his band were taken care of, shows were advanced, and engagements were met while she logged countless miles on the road with acts like Bruno Mars, The Script, The Barenaked Ladies, Andy Grammer, Joshua Radin and many more!

Though 10 years ‘new’ to the music industry, Julia was no stranger to the entertainment and arts industry. A skilled, and professionally trained makeup artist, she’s worked on countless photo, film and TV shoots, and also spent time hosting a morning show at sea while working for Carnival Cruise Lines as an Entertainment Director.

Being adaptable, strong willed and proficient has been the underlying theme of Julia’s management success, and while she’s stepped back from the tour management side at this point, she has morphed her role to include consultation services and the assistance in the A&R process, identifying and producing records for both Andrew, and her most recent management signing, Olivia Penalva, who landed her first cross-platform top 20 radio hit in Canada with her single ‘Skyline’.
