Allie Dunn believed her path was initially to follow in her mother’s footsteps and become a doctor. However, after her sophomore year of college she decided to take a leap of faith to pursue her musical dreams. She was ironically then discovered by her manager while temping in an optometrist's office. Dunn has always drawn musical inspiration from many sources, but mainly the Laurel Canyon classic-folk-pop-singer-songwriters she's admired her whole life: From discovering the Eagles via her parents record collection in her teenage bedroom to listening to the same records over and over in her dorm room in New York City, the music she loved gave her the courage to make the leap to full-time musician, leaving a potentially fulfilling and stable career option behind. With her EP Good As Gone under her belt, Dunn is approaching a new era of "retro pop" music starting with her latest single, "Silver Lining."
