Performing an intimate acoustic set, Canadian artist Andrew Allen will be at the Acoustic Emporium on Friday, March 31.

Creating more than just a show, Allen embraces and revels in the experience. He feeds off the audience and returns every ounce of energy back in melody form.

From his fun-loving 2009 Top 10 single ‘I Wanna Be Your Christmas’ to the smash hit ‘Loving You Tonight’ which was catapulted into the Top 10 on radio and the Top 100 in iTunes, courtesy of CHUM Radio’s Emerging Artist Initiative, all the way to his soulful ballads like ‘Amazing’, which he performed in Whistler BC at the 2010 Closing Ceremonies of the Paralympic Winter Games, he somehow knows just how to conduct a show that has you laughing, dancing and most importantly — remembering.

Hailing from the sunny Okanagan, Allen guides his listeners through a musical journey, with stops everywhere from B.C.’s West Coast to the vibrant tropical influence he acquired while working throughout the Caribbean.

He masterfully combines his fresh and original acoustic beach grooves with some mainstream pop overtones, creating an absolutely ear pleasing adventure. It almost seems as if the West Coast vibe feels at home in his tunes.

Allen isn’t just another musician. He’s got that something else, that limitless energy, that infectious smile, that ‘star quality’ that will inevitably take him to the top. He’s authentic, he’s determined and he’s just plain good. His self worth is not defined by the response to the music he creates, but instead it’s demonstrated through the music that he shares.

Opening for Allen will be alt-folk musician Corey Primus.

After many years of music and many standout moments including opening for Canadian rock legend Burton Cummings and Paul Janz, as well as sharing the stage with acclaimed singer-songwriter Stephen Fearing, Primus returns to his roots to write and record new material.

Envision Financial’s The Full Cupboard program will be there, so people are asked to bring food and/or cash donations. Dazipop cupcakes will also be there.

Andrew Allen with opening act Corey Primus is Friday, March 31 at Acoustic Emporium (45892 Wellington Ave.) at 7 p.m.

Tickets $15 and available at Long & McQuade Chilliwack (604-858-2996).
