Allie Sherlock Net Worth

What is Allie Sherlock’s net worth?

Introduction

Allie Sherlock is a singer / songwriter / guitarist who hails from Cork, Ireland.

By 15 years old, she had already appeared on superstar talk-show host Ellen De Generes’ show and been seen by millions of viewers worldwide.

She’d also caught the eye—professionally speaking—of super-celebs like Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran, and Adele.

The diminutive teen is no stranger to busking—having performed on Grafton Street, Dublin, multiple times in her young life.

Here’s what we know about the young Irish songstress and what she has been busy achieving when she’s not being homeschooled.

The Origin Story

Allie Sherlock was born on 7th April 2005, in Douglas, a town in the Cork district of Ireland.

She lost her mom when she was quite young and is the only child of Mark Sherlock.

Allie experienced quite a lot of bullying when she was in 6th class in primary school—the Irish equivalent of 6th grade.

As a result, Allie’s father pulled her out of school and began home-schooling her.

Allie showed an affinity for the guitar from a young age, so her father invested in guitar lessons for the pair when she was 8 years old—but even he admits that he had no idea she could sing.

At age 11, Allie started singing along to her guitar.

The rest, as they say, is history.

A Star Is Born

Allie may have caught the eye of local Irish crowds early on, but it was once her dad, Mark, started uploading her videos to YouTube that she really went stratospheric.

By 2021, she had a subscriber count that was about to surpass 4.5 million.

In 2018, when Allie was just 12 years old, she performed Ed Sheeran’s Perfect on The Ray D’Arcy Show—a gig she promptly followed up with The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

For Ellen, she covered Adele’s Million Years Ago.

Ryan Tedder, the lead vocalist for One Republic and owner of Patriot Records, was instantly hooked.

By the end of that year, he’d signed Sherlock to a lucrative five-year contract.

Allie’s dad was adamant that his young daughter not be worked into the ground. He’d seen too many cautionary child-star tales on television, and he is committed to making sure all this celebrity is fun for Allie.

“All the music labels (have) come knocking…America’s Got Talent…everything. We don’t do it unless it’s something fun and fits in with her life.” Mark goes on to explain that when Allie’s debut album would be released in 2020, Allie would have total control over how much she wanted to tour.

Staying Grounded

Mark has also been quick to point out that the road to celebrity hasn’t always been a smooth one.

After experiencing bullying in primary school—something Allie admits she’s fine with now because she understands it was mostly due to other kids being jealous of her—Allie had a hard time coping with her new-found fame.

“We had some trouble at first, didn’t we?” her father explained in a 2020 interview. Allie conceded that everyone was stroking her ego, and she became a bit of “a brat.” “I was getting into trouble and arguing a lot,” she admits.

The Big Time

When you’ve got the likes of superstar Justin Bieber following you on social media, it would be understandable if your ego gets a little out of control.

For Allie, though, not all the interactions are positive.

Early on, Allie performed covers of some of Justin’s biggest hits—and the pop star shared one of them on his Instagram account. Allie thanked him for the exposure, and the pair had been mutual fans ever since.

Then, in 2020, the young Allie posted a seemingly mundane message to her Instagram account, asking her followers—over 1.2 million of them—what they couldn’t live without.

26-year-old Bieber took the opportunity to call the tween starlet out publically, commenting:

“It hurts me that you would ignore or be silent regarding the racism that fills this globe.”

Allie responded, admitting that she couldn’t deal with the negativity that came with posting about such a volatile subject.

Still Just A Kid

Allie may live a jet-setting lifestyle and have released her debut album before she’s even out of high school, but she’s still just a kid at heart.

She enjoys football, loves animals, and enjoys gymnastics when she’s not singing, playing the guitar, or writing music.

Under the watchful eye of her father, she is also quick to assure fans that she doesn’t have the time or inclination to date in 2021.
