Scott Allen's musical career began in earnest in late 1998 when he joined Michigan's Red Shirt Brigade at the age of 14. As the band's keyboard player, Allen infused a youthful energy into the band's live shows. His frantic keyboard style quickly found a place in the band's sound, and his boundless energy garnered rave reviews at the band's concerts. In 2001, Allen released his 10-song, self-titled solo album. Recorded at Michigan's Our Leisure Studios with Allen's producer-father Brad Allen, the disc compiled his solo efforts from 1999-2001. After debuting as a solo artist at the 2001 Detroit Summer Smash music festival, Allen began performing with a revolving set of musicians as Scott Allen & the Breakdance in 2002. That same year, Suburban Sprawl Records released his sophomore album, The Selfish Sweetness, a 14-track effort that showcased Allen's continuing maturation as a songwriter. Still in 2002, Allen joined Michigan's Summersault, after having produced the band's debut CD.
