Jimmy ALLEN, Guitarist Extraordinaire and Founder of Against All Will

Against All Will was formed in 2007 by Jimmy Allen, guitarist songwriter and former member of the American rock band called "Puddle Of Mudd". Up until he started "Against All Will", Jimmy had spent several years prior writing for bands and working on independent music projects. Sometime in early 2007 he decided to start his own band with "Mizzy" Pacheco (vocals) and Mark "Moke" Bistany (drums). Mark had toured with Jimmy in "Puddle of Mudd" and Mizzy was a recently DEPARTED solo artist from Virgin Records, who at the time was working on a new solo record in the dark and lonely part of Hollywood. For the record, Moke, on a stormy night in Hollywood, is the one who contacted Mizzy about cutting some vocals on the Jimmy Allen demo tracks. Mizzy and Moke were good friends for years in LA, drawn together perhaps, for fact they both came from the "East Coast" and shared a splendid love. In March 2011, Phillip Gonyea replaced Wilson on drums. The band plans to release their first full-length album in 2013.

Though the Jimmy Allen is a gifted guitarist and songwriter. His first song, ‘You Don’t Know’, from the indie album, “Stuck”, by Puddle of Mudd, became a top ten radio request in his hometown of Kansas City. At the time, Puddle of Mudd was still unsigned; yet, Jimmy was not ready to leave the band. He did eventually part ways with his  former band; though, he returned  briefly in 2005-2006. He left them a profusion of great songs, many of which have become hits, earning him awards for ‘Blurry’ (ASCAP’s & Billboard 2003 Song of the Year award), ‘Drift & Die’, and ‘She Hates Me’ (ASCAP’s 2004 Pop Song of the Year) from Puddle Of Mudd’s triple-platinum  major label debut, “Come Clean”. Their pedigree may be a little blurry, but Against All Will share a  chemistry that is crystal clear.

Against All Will’s debut, “A Rhyme & Reason”, is a warm wash of sweet tones and salty vibrato with lyrics that hit just as hard as the songs. The band’s self-released debut was recorded at Korn’s studio in Hollywood and produced by Tim Harkins (Korn, Alice in Chains, Queens of the Stone Age) The band’s independent release has had three successful singles - All About You, The Drug I Need, and Swept Away - in the national Active Rock Top 100  songs for over a year. They broke in at #9 on the Big-Uns countdown on the SiriusXM Octane radio station without any record label support. Against All Will are currently in the studio writing and working on a new album and getting a single ready for a  fall release.
