Canadian based indie r&b singer Allan Rayman has developed something of a reputation for being an enigma throughout his prolific career, mysteriously adopting musical alter-egos, shying away from revealing much about his personal life, and regularly posting literary and artistically-curated stories and references on social media. His music can be just as alluringly cryptic, whether it’s a conceptual series of albums based around an alter-ego (the latest of which, Roadhouse 02, arrived earlier this year), multiple homages to ’90s Christian Slater, or simply ambitious and meticulously thought-out art. One thing it all has in common though, is that Rayman’s style is soulful, contemporary, and endlessly cool, combining alt rock bite and hip hop production stylings for a thoroughly profound and substantive alternative r&b style that has earned the singer a cult following.
Out in support of his new album, Allan returns to Nashville for the first time post-pandemic to headline Mercy Lounge on May 13, a show originally slated to take place in 2020 in support of his last LP, Christian. That means there’s a lot of new material to showcase live, and his shows, with their minimalist charm and well-curated aesthetic, are a celebrated affair! While you can still buy tickets to the show right here, we’re excited to announce that we’re also giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky winner! Enter below, and scroll for a preview Allan’s latest!
Allan Rayman will perform Friday, May 13 at Mercy Lounge. The show is 18+, begins at 8 p.m. (doors at 7 p.m.), and tickets are available to purchase for $22.50-25.
