Going from television to music is not easy and in reality, few artists manage to stand out when that change is made. However, it is quite interesting to realize that some of those figures that we once saw on the small screen have talent when it comes to hanging an instrument…. and the example is in Allison Scagliottithe actress that many will remember for her recurring appearance in Drake & Josh.
And if they don’t remember her by her first name, then maybe they remember her in that series for playing Mindy Crenshaw, the academic rival and eventual girlfriend of Josh Nichols. Well, if you lost track of this girl after that show, then you might be surprised to know that now he fully entered music as a bassist and the truth is, he raffles.
Allison Scagliotti/Mindy Crenshaw’s TV career
As we said, few stars manage to make the big leap from TV, from youth comedy series, to the music scene. Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande They are perhaps the perfect example of the popstars who took off big in music after having roles in these types of programs. And although they may be the most recognized at the moment, they are not the only ones as such.
There we also have the aforementioned Allison Scagliottiwho here in Mexico and Latin America is well remembered for her role as Mindy Crenshaw in Drake & Josh. Although that character appeared as a recurring character throughout the series, it is fair to say that she endeared herself to the public for that evolution of ‘intellectual bully’ from Josh to his girlfriend in a plot twist pretty cool, to tell the truth.
But she wasn’t just featured in that Nickelodeon series when it came to her television career. To her credit, she highlights some main roles in series such as Warehouse 13 Y Stitchersin addition to other recurring roles in Smallville, Bones and TI have Vampire Diaries and else.
Over there, she has also been a director in some series and has even participated in movies and some short films. Allison Scagliotti has quite a journey on the American TV scene to tell the truth… but ifu ‘mere mole’, apparently, is in music and in more recent years has shown it.

One of his bands that he was in between 2015 and 2018 was called Nice Enough Peoplee, in which he played the guitar and in which the bassist was himself jerry trainorthe actor who plays Spencer in icarly and “Crazy Steve” in Drake & Josh.
But that has not been the only thing that gets his musical skills going.

At the moment, she has several EP’s and two studio albums. –utter horror Y VAMPYR– released between 2020 and 2021.
