Allman grew up in Springville, Utah and later moved to Pleasant Grove, Utah. Quinn grew up watching his dad play in numerous bands as a drummer, originally picking up the drums at age 5. Some of his fondest childhood memories are watching his dad rock the drums in their Springville home. His dad was not only an extremely talented musician but a machinist. His two younger brothers Ian and Riley Allman are also musicians and artists alike.
Allman started playing in bands at a young age. Allman is influenced by bands such as Face to Face, Goldfinger, Thursday, Kenna, Weezer, Jimmy Eat World, and The New Transit Direction. Singer Bert McCracken of The Used describes him as a “truly spiritual and warm” individual.
In addition to Allman's work as a musician, in 2012 he was filmed in a supporting role in the feature film "Writer's Cramp," currently in post-production.
Alongside The Used, Quinn manages a side project, a band he discovered entitled Evaline, which played on the 2006 Warped Tour.
