It’s hard enough to be a musical artist in one band, let alone being part of three successful bands all at once. That’s the story of the rising star Brien Allen, who ultimately gave up his path toward petroleum engineering to pursue a career in music. Suffice to say, he couldn’t have made a better choice as he has now attained massive success working with his bands.
Brien Allen’s mother had always been a woman of music and art, and his father was a man of science, being a self-employed geophysicist. As a young boy, he wanted nothing more than to make both of his parents proud, so he pursued petroleum engineering as a prospective career. Years would pass, and his love for music would always seem to eclipse his love for science.
After graduating and getting his degree in petroleum engineering from the University of Texas at Austin, Brien Allen dove headfirst into music by joining a local rock band and honing his guitar shredding techniques in the years to come. This all happened back in 2014, where he took a leap of faith and confirmed that he was destined to be a musician from the very beginning.
Yet his early musical stint didn’t go as well as he planned. Touring with the local rock band got him nowhere despite him investing thousands of dollars into the whole project. It was at that moment that Brien Allen felt that his dreams were slowly slipping away, but he wasn’t just going to give up that easily. He knew what he had to do in order to start over, so he rebranded himself with the thought of never repeating the same mistakes ever again.
A couple of years pass, and now Brien Allen is part of some of the best bands in the world. He’s involved in Altermind, a progressive metal band from Austin. Currently, the band is cooking up a storm by collaborating with vocalists such as Lauren Babic in 2021, the same year the band is expected to be releasing an album as well.
Apart from being part of Altermind, Brien Allen also works with the Latin Pop-Rock group, Al Cielo. The group has members that are scattered all around the United States formed under the guidance and mentorship of Charlie Walk through a program known as Music Mastery. 2021 is looking to be a busy year for Brien as Al Cielo is set to release a couple of songs in the same year, seamlessly blending electronic pop with Latin music and rock.
The third and final band that Brien Allen is a part of is called Bridges Ablaze, and in this band, Brien’s vocal flare is put on center stage as he does vocals alongside one of his closest friends. Both of them are also lead guitarists in the band, creating a guitar/vocal duet that hasn’t been seen in the music industry for years. The band is also under the guidance and supervision of Charlie Walk in Music Mastery.
There are more things on the table for Brien Allen next year as he is slated to release two new albums with his other projects Arborenna and Perpetual Horizon. Brien is as versatile as any musical artist could get, as he collaborates with various artists and resonates with their distinct sound. The talented musician has also done features in other groups and even renowned female pop artists. It’s clear that his musical talent knows no bounds, and he was always destined to take this path. He hopes to inspire other aspiring musicians to take charge of their lives and reach for their dreams. They’ll never know where it will take them.Follow the talented Brien Allen’s musical journey by following him on his Instagram account.
