Andy Allo Releases First Single Off Upcoming EP
New Pop Single “Tongue Tied” Now Available on iTunes® and Amazon®
“This single is a breath of fresh air for me, full of positivity and hope,” said Andy Allo. “I don’t feel I am bound by any one genre. My first two albums, UnFresh (2009) and Superconductor (2012), had completely different, more funky and soulful vibes. ‘Tongue Tied’ and my upcoming EP are reflections of the happiness I have in my life, intertwined with the obstacles I have overcome to create a unique musical expression of myself.”
Allo’s journey began in Cameroon, Africa, where at a young age, her mother taught her to play piano. Influenced by an eclectic array of artists including Dolly Parton, Fleetwood Mac, Nina Simone, Arctic Monkeys and Chuck Berry, Allo’s music and songwriting takes form by crossing multiple genres. In 2009, Allo self-produced her first album UnFresh, and in 2011, she joined mentor Prince’s band New Power Generation as a singer/songwriter. Prince collaborated with Allo on her sophomore album, Superconductor, released in 2012. Allo has recently been featured on three songs off of Prince’s album Art Official Age, released Sept. 30, 2014, including “What It Feels Like,” “Time,” and “Breakdown.”
“Tongue Tied” is the introduction to the next chapter in Allo’s story as she prepares to launch a pop album with a rock edge in Spring 2015. Her refreshing voice, honest and sweet lyrics on the single combined with her soft yet striking looks make her a talent a watch as she rises to the top.
