Allan Rayman Plans to Bring Gritty "Poison" to Brooklyn's Warsaw
Allan Rayman dropped his latest single “Poison” last month, and he’s about to perform the song as part of his self-titled show at Brooklyn’s Warsaw venue on June 5. Just like Jim Jones would have had us under his cult-like spell in 1978, Music & Mojitos is ready to drink in all of Rayman’s edgy vocals, man.
Rayman is no stranger when it comes to drawing attention to himself. Performing as part of massive festival lineups at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Austin City Limits, the Toronto-based singer-songwriter plans on drawing as many eyeballs to his set when he loudly rocks his way over to the city that never sleeps in just a few short days.
Music & Mojitos has a feeling Brooklyn will come thirsty for what Rayman has up his gritty sleeves—if he decides to wear a shirt during his gig, that is. That’s the beauty of America: freedom of choice. Don’t fret— maple syrup will always be alright in our book, shirt or no shirt.
The raspy Rayman doesn’t back down from his theatrical style, either. His music video for “Rose” embodies everything a rockstar should aspire to create: a video that’s oddly charming, cool, and brooding.
In an interview with Billboard in 2017, Rayman told the outlet that his chilled out vibe and free-spirited nature is all that he knows. “I’m not trying to force anything on anyone, I’m not trying to be anything I’m not, let’s just roll with it,” said Rayman. “Keep your head down, keep moving forward, and if you give me the opportunity to create, I’m going to do it.”
Come June 5 at Warsaw, Rayman has the opportunity to put his creative juices to the test once more. After all, a little bit of “Poison” never hurt anybody, right?
(Music & Mojitos is not responsible if you decide to drink motor oil after reading this preview. Actual poison is bad for you, okay?)
