Rock My World Canada, Chapter 7: Allan Rayman

[Mike Carr has put together a massive volume on Canadian music history entitled Canadian Alternative & Indie Reference and Collector’s GuideIt’s an incredible discography of hundreds of bands. This is the latest excerpt from his book. – AC]

Allan Rayman is an R&B soul singer who seems to be the unspoken whisper on everyone’s lips. He doesn’t do interviews, gives no explanations for projects, and it’s virtually impossible to find a live video of him online. He’s a minimalist with his social media accounts and website and doesn’t carry a large following on either, despite the fact that he has 500,000 monthly listeners on Spotify. Originally from Lost Springs, Wyoming he now resides in Toronto.
