Andrew Allen returns to the Okanagan

Could Andrew Allen be our next big musical export?

His single "I want you" is top ten in Canada, he's currently on tour with Dia Frampton (runner up of "The Voice"), and one of his songs was recently featured in Taylor Lautner's movie, Abduction.

I think it's safe to say our local lad has made it into the big leagues.

Born and raised in Vernon, Andrew Allen is well known in the Okanagan as a songwriter and musician. His career got a major boost in 2010 when he was signed to Epic records.

He is returning to Kelowna after a sold out show in Vernon to headline this year's Global Music Fest.

Here is my interview with Andrew talking about his career, upcoming tour, and his upcoming show in Kelowna.

Did you know he opened for Bruno Mars, The Script, and the BNL's last year?

Here is a video of top ten single "I want you":

(singer/songwriter, event producer, digital creative, Councillor at the City of Kelowna). 

I love creating and connecting. For years I spent most of my time in Kelowna creating songs. Those songs have been used by the Terry Fox Run, Kelowna’s Centennial Celebration, or heard on various local radio stations. 

In the past few years I've focused on creating community events including Music in the Park, New York New Years, Castanet’s Free Family Skate, Talented Kids, Talented Kelowna, etc. 

I use this column to connect some of our local creatives, events, unique local projects/non-profits, or perhaps the random column about our city. 

Originally from Scotland I’ve lived in Kelowna for over 20 years.  My wife, Kimberly, and our two daughters, Lyla and Bella, share our home with Tom (adult with diverse abilities). In 2014 I was elected to Kelowna City Council. 

Opinions are my own and don't represent the City of Kelowna, Festivals Kelowna or Creative Okanagan.
