Today my guest is Allie X. She’s a Canadian singer-songwriter and artist who’s been living in LA for the last few years. She is an incredibly talented artist and has over 100 million streams and 1.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify.

We talk about what her journey has been like the last few months and how she’s shifted her plans and release strategies. Then we go into her background, how she became Allie X, and how she’s been so successful without the support of a major label. She has a very interesting story and cool ways of doing things.
