Bruce Allen


One of the most successful Canadian artist managers ever, Vancouver-based Bruce Allen has helped his clients sell over 100 million records and become major international concert attractions. That formidable list includes Bryan Adams, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Loverboy, Anne Murray, Prism, Powder Blues, Tom Cochrane and Red Rider, Liona Boyd, Michael Bublé and Jann Arden. Allen is known as being both ambitious and ruthless on behalf of his artists, and the results (dozens of platinum sales awards, a truckload of Grammys and Junos) speak for themselves. In 2023, Allen parted ways with Adams after a 44-year partnership, but current clients continue to excel. Michael Bublé enjoyed a blockbuster 2023, as his Higher World Tour reaffirmed his international stardom, while NBC recently announced he is joining The Voice Season 26 as a coach. After closing out 2022 with her own CTV TV holiday special, much-loved Canadian treasure Jann Arden had a typically busy 2023 that included the publication of a novel, The Bittlemores. She will soon be touring nationally with Rick Mercer. Other current clients of Bruce Allen Talent include Anne Murray, A-list producer Bob Rock and The Offspring. Having just turned 79, Allen remains a formidable force.
