Elvia Allman was born in Enochville, North Carolina. She began her career in Los Angeles as a radio program arranger, children's story reader and later as a singer in the 1920s. In the 1930s, she did voice over performances for Warner Brothers cartoons and made her film debut in "A Night at Earl Carroll's" (1940). Other films included “A WAVE, a WAC and a Marine,” “You Can’t Run Away From it,” and “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
