A native of Auburn, Alabama, Allen was exposed to blues and R&B at an early age. Moving into jazz and fusion in his teens, he attended Berklee College of Music and shortly after, moved to Los Angeles to attend Musician’s Institute, where he has remained on staff to the present. Allen also teaches at a new school called Shepherd University where he teaches with Abraham Laboriel, Otmaro Ruiz and Jimmy Branley.
