Joseph Allen: AGT Season 14 Quarter Finals
Hometown: Killeen, Texas
Joseph Allen grew up racing motorcycles, sometimes jumping them farther than 100 feet. He has broken so many bones over the years that the bones and ligaments in his body are now held together with nine screws, a four-inch titanium plate, four internal nylon ropes, two metal anchors and more.
Because of the danger of his sport, his mother suggested that he put his motocross racing dreams behind him and focus on getting a college education. He promptly moved to Phoenix, Arizona, and while in college there he discovered his talent for songwriting and performing. When he noticed that the students at his school liked his original music, he picked up a job as a certified tire technician and worked nonstop to save $5,000 that he invested in building a recording studio in his dorm room. He spent endless nights learning how to produce, play the piano, engineer sounds and record, mix and master his music. Then he began releasing his music on all platforms and realized that it was more than just students at his school that liked his music. Joseph Allen's fan base and following on social media is growing so fast, there is really no telling how much he will change the world!
