Allen Odell

Allen Odell is a producer-songwriter from Gwinnett County, Georgia. He started his music journey as early as 1 or 2 years old, crawling his way over to his dad's keyboard, guitar, and congas to make every sound possible. He is the son of Central-American parents and grew up in an incredibly diverse metro-Atlanta area, leading him to discover and genuinely love a nearly inexhaustible range of music. Around 13 years old, he began making hip-hop and ambient beats in FL Studio. Over the next decade, he would make hundreds and hundreds of beats, but would eventually find himself wanting to say something as well. Especially after coming to embrace the Christian faith in his late adolescence, he has been on a path of developing a more mature, yet unashamedly DIY sound, taking inspiration from (and stealing boldly from) a variety of artists such as From Indian Lakes, Mutemath, Bon Iver, Sampha, Kid Cudi, Jon Foreman, Andrew Osenga, Kye Kye, Pedro the Lion, As Cities Burn, Blindside, Tycho, Hammock, and plenty more. He deals with themes such as finding beauty in tragedy, marveling at the mundane, and fighting for a sustainable faith in a restless world. His second full-length album titled "Full Hearts, Empty Places" comes out September 30, 2022.
