ALLAN RAYMAN SET TO RELEASE FULL-LENGTH STUDIO ALBUM CHRISTIAN ON APRIL 3RD

PRODUCED BY GRAMMY AWARD WINNER ALEX DA KID

HEADLINING U.S. TOUR KICKS OFF APRIL 7TH IN BOSTON

Singer/songwriter Allan Rayman will release his full-length album, CHRISTIAN, on April 3rd. The record is the latest musical offering from the musician and is available for pre-order HERE.

With over 150 million streams to date, “The Most Mysterious Man in Music” follows a five-year arc to his fourth full-length, CHRISTIAN, produced by GRAMMY Award winner Alex da Kid. It pays off on the promise of the critically acclaimed triptych—Hotel Allan [2016], Roadhouse 01 [2017] and Harry Hard-On [2018] and the 2017 EP Courtney—as he ventures into new territory once more. When describing the new album Allan commented, “There’s naivety and angst in CHRISTIAN. It’s a bigger range of emotions. It’s Allan’s first stab at a full body of work. It’s the most confident album Allan has made.”

Allan started teasing the highly anticipated album in 2019 by releasing
>“Pretty Please,” “Stitch” and “6AM.” He started off 2020 with the new single, “Chief” which EARMILK proclaimed “an infusion of rap laced with rock-inspired drums.”

Allan recently announced a headlining U.S. tour that kicks off on April 7th in Boston, MA. The tour will debut the artist’s full live band and make stops in 25 cities across the U.S., including performances in Orlando, Santa Fe and Milwaukee for the first time. Tickets and additional information can be found here: https://www.allanrayman.com/

Tori Kelly Sets Record With New Project Hiding Place

Hiding Place & Grammy-nominated artist Tori Kelly’s new passion project has set the record for the most first-week streams ever for a gospel album.

The collection, which was produced by 12-time GRAMMY Award winner Kirk Franklin, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart and had the highest-selling week of any 2018 gospel album.

Hiding Place also topped Billboard’s Gospel Streaming Songs and Gospel Digital Song Sales charts plus the Apple Music Christian genre chart.

Tori was joined by Kirk Franklin and a choir last night when she performed the lead single Never Alone on The Late Show with James Corden. View their performance here! She and Franklin will also perform at the Annual GMA Dove Awards, which will be held October 16th in Nashville and air on TBN on Sunday, Oct. 21.

Tickets are on sale now at www.torikellymusic.com for Tori’s Hiding Place tour, which will kick off on Oct. 18 with a sold out concert at The Tabernacle in Atlanta, GA. The headline run includes shows at Warner Theatre in Washington DC (Oct. 28), Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium (Nov. 8), New York City’s Riverside Church (Oct. 30) plus two sold-out nights at the Cathedral Sanctuary at Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles (Nov. 16 & 17). See below for itinerary.

Idolator observed, there was always the sneaking suspicion that the 25-year old’s voice could soar even higher, that she could open near heart even wider. That promise finally comes to fruition on Hiding Place. Kelly’s talent transcends genres.

Tori Kelly wants her new album Hiding Place to be a light in the dark for fans,” says PEOPLE magazine

Half of the songs on Hiding Place were penned by Franklin alone while the remaining tracks came from a collaboration between the two artists the first time that Franklin had ever co-written in his decades long career. The collection also features guest artists Lecrae, Johnathon McReynolds, and The Hamiltones.

Tori’s 2015 debut album Unbreakable Smile landed her on Artist to Watch–lists from the likes of Rolling Stone. It entered the Billboard 200 at No. 2 and contained the Gold-certified singles Nobody Love, Should’ve Been Us, and Hollow.

Unbreakable Smile has racked up more than one billion cumulative streams worldwide and sold 1.3 million adjusted albums. Following its release, Tori was nominated for a GRAMMY in the Best New Artist category and received the Billboard Women in Music Breakthrough Artist award.
