Jimmie Allen

I came across Jimmie Allen while I was doing some research for another EP review, and was certainly not disappointed.

Jimmie’s self-titled 5 Track EP, was released in 2017. It wasn’t an easy road for him, moving to Nashville in 2007, and trying to get his voice heard. (isn’t that the truth in Music City!) But oh what a wonderful wait it was. The songs tells the story of love and relationships, and heartache as well, but the way Jimmie approaches it, is just mind blowing.. His voice is just, what can I say, incredible! Smooth with a hint of Jazz and blues. I listened to this over and over in the car, trying to catch every single note he produced…

Each song is a journey through love, personal relationships, and his relationship with music.

“Best Shot” sounds so soulful and so hopeful, the lyrics, “I’ll love you with everything I got” and  “Give you my best shot”, definitely have a double meaning.. A true love worth fighting for, and moving to Nashville,  which was absolutely worth the fight..

Jimmie incorporates several genres in expressing his creative style of writing lyrics and composing music, Jazz, Blues, Rock, and Pop. You can feel the influences in each song, Jimmie’s guitar riffs, make you feel the emotion big time.

I adore the song “Happy Hour” with its upbeat melodies and clean sound. It is the last song on the EP, and with it comes the feeling of accomplishment, and achieving his goal of finding his spot in Nashville, and being recognized by some of the best producers in the industry. Jimmie can be found touring soon, promoting his EP, and telling the world about his struggles and his wins with life, love and music.

Hi, Im Robin. I have been a music groupie/follower, since the '70s (showing my age). Gr0wing up in Oyster Bay, Long Island, N.Y. there was not a lot of Country music playing on the airways. I always found a way to seek out the country side of my youth, Marshall Tucker Band, Poco, Charlie Daniels, Johnny Cash, and my absolute all time favorite, Dwight Yoakam. The list goes on. (of course my disco friends, never knew this,) Moving to Florida in the early 1980's was awesome! There was more than one Country radio station on FM!! I discovered the greats like Tanya Tucker, Sammy Kershaw, Marty Stuart, Travis Tritt, Randy Travis. Line dancing every weekend, I was in heaven!! There is so much great talent out there now, its exciting and they are extremely innovative with their craft. I look forward to each time a new song and album are released. My son is a bass player and has moved to Nashville to pursue his dream of being a touring musician, and he is on the road right now. I guess you can say it runs in the family. :) So now I get the chance to visit the home of country music, Nashville!!! I love reaching out to the up and comers here in FLorida, there is so much amazing talent. This is not just a job, but a passion!!! Robin
