"She's a super talent who is ahead of her time, so driven and so versatile! Great things
Global Media Music, NYC
Allegra Miles is a 16 year-old pop/soul singer-songwriter with a soulful twist. She’s an emerging artist with a powerful voice and a passion for singing that began before she could talk. Born in San Diego, CA, Allegra spent 5 years living in the U.S. Virgin Islands before moving to Palm Beach County, Florida in 2014. She divides her time between NYC and Florida in order to develop her music career.
Allegra sings with a soulfulness and vocal control well beyond her years. She’s been described as “the real deal", “a phenomenal singer”, and “very impressive” by prominent music industry professionals. Her versatile vocal talent and passion for singing spans many genres, including pop, soul, singer-songwriter, musical theatre and classical. Tony Coluccio of Global Media Music, NYC, who produced several of Allegra’s first music videos, has nothing but accolades for Allegra: “She’s a super talent who is ahead of her time, so driven and so versatile! Great things to come!”
Diverse musical background and focus: Allegra’s from a musical family – her mother is a music therapist who plays guitar, piano and sings, her dad plays the bass and guitar, and her older sister plays guitar & piano – and they regularly play together at open mics. Allegra started playing the piano at age four, and she continues to develop her skill at playing classical, pop, and pop/soul styles on the piano. She began playing the guitar and writing songs at twelve, offering a positive message for the world, and especially for young people. Currently, Allegra is singing, playing and writing in a distinctive pop/soul singer-songwriter style. Her originals are vocally and musically sophisticated, emotionally expressive and have a laid back vibe.
Developing her vocal style and skills has been Allegra deepest focus, and she is fortunate to have had several wonderfully talented vocal coaches: Badiene Magaziner, Valerie Saalbach, Craig Wich, and Luba Dolgopolsky. Allegra has performed originals and covers at restaurant gigs, open-mics, competitions, festivals and piano bars in New York City, Los Angeles, Nashville, Asheville, South Florida, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Allegra's love of the theatre brought her to the Maltz Jupiter Theatre Conservatory in South Florida, where she is enrolled in the Professional Training Program, a full time, 2 year course of study encompassing singing, acting, dancing and performance.
Honors and awards: In 2018 (at age 15), Allegra received the Peggy & Rick Katz Award for Outstanding Achievement from the Maltz Jupiter Theatre Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts. In 2017 (at age 14), Allegra received an Honorable Mention in the Hal Leonard Vocal Competition 2017, in the Musical Theatre category. At age 13, Allegra made her solo debut at Carnegie Hall in December, 2016, as a 1st place winner in the musical theatre category for the international vocal competition, American Protégé. In 2015 (at age 12), Allegra sang the National Anthem in front of 5,500 fans at the Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Florida before a Miami Dolphins/St. Louis Cardinals spring training game. In 2013 (at age 10), she was awarded the Ruth Sis Frank Merit Scholarship – Platinum Level, from the St. John School of the Arts in St. John, USVI, for her vocal performance.
Delivering songs with a positive message: Allegra wants her music to inspire everyone to make the world a better place, love themselves, and to promote a cruelty-free world. Allegra became a vegetarian at age 6 - firmly informing her parents that she refuses to hurt animals - and became an avid animal rights supporter shortly after. Now a vegan, she is wholeheartedly committed to a lifestyle that doesn’t harm animals – which includes not eating, wearing or using products which are made from, tested on, or harm animals - and she wants to spread this message to people everywhere through her role as a performing musician.
Her first song, “Change the World” (which she wrote completely herself at age 12), and all her original music can be streamed or downloaded on Spotify, iTunes, and other music sites. Music videos for her original songs have been produced by Global Media Music, and Liz Pix Productions and can be seen on YouTube. She’s writing more every week, and hopes you’ll share and subscribe to her YouTube channel and follow her social media. Sign up for her mailing list to hear about what she's up to.
