Singer songwriter Allegra Miles: From local stages to national TV

From writing songs about changing the world at age 12 in her bedroom to the small clubs of West Palm Beach, the semi-finalist of The Voice at 17 years old has already made a big mark in the music world.

In person, Allegra Miles is a tall, confident presence, with a sunny smile, a curtain of blond hair, and a sweet smattering of freckles. Disarmingly polite and attentive, she listens and nods and laughs in the right measure. From writing songs about changing the world at age 12 in her bedroom to the small clubs of West Palm Beach and remarkably, to the semi-finals of NBC’s ‘The Voice’ Season 18, 17-year-old Allegra has already made a big mark in the music world.

Sitting in the spacious lobby of the new Canopy by Hilton West Palm Beach Downtown in, she talks about her journey from San Diego where she was born, to living in St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands, then West Palm Beach since she was 11 — and her dreams of the future.

Surrounded by music since birth as her mother is a music therapist, she joined her family at open mic nights together around town. At 12, she wrote her first song.

“I didn’t really get a formal education on how to write songs but I had the idea that what I would really like to do is change the world, so that became the first song,” she says. “It came out really quickly.”
