Artist: Allan Rayman
Origin: Toronto, Canada
A&R Report favorite Allan Rayman had an impressive 2016 with the release of his project “Hotel Allan” and a North American tour. If you thought he was planning on slowing down, you were sadly mistaken. Allan isn’t wasting anytime getting things moving in 2017. He didn’t want to keep fans waiting so he has blessed us with a new single AND the announcement of a new album . “Repeat” is the first single from the upcoming album “Roadhouse 01”, which will be released on February 24th via Communion Records.
Allan recruited fellow Toronto representative Jessie Reyez for his new single. It’s described as fluttery, vulnerable and hip-hop infused. Rayman and Reyes serenade us over the soothing track produced by Moose. Individually, each artist provides raw, gritty and captivating vocal performances. Collectively, their voices compliment each other and tantalizes us from start to finish.
“Roadhouse 01” will chronicle Allan’s retreat to an isolated cabin in the woods of Lost Springs, where he wrestles with his demons in the form of a rebellious alter ego, Mr. Roadhouse. It covers a lot of narrative territory and is fuses R&B, hip hop, and folk influences with dark, seductive storytelling.
Press play on “Repeat” and stay tuned for the upcoming album.
