Recording artist Ray Apollo Allen has been giving listeners a fresh new approach of the Motown Sound. A former member of the band The Orioles for more than 9 years, he has since moved in a solo direction and has continued to be a prolific name in the vein of R&B and Motown revival. Fresh off of the heels of his recent hit track “It’s a Party (Block Party)”, he continues to gain momentum as one of the driving forces behind the new era of Motown inspired music. His latest work does an outstanding job of blending old sounds with new, a hybrid of what made Motown great and what it has done for current music.
Classical instrumentals are the backbone to his crooning voice, and when combined with some of the most talented studio musicians working today, the end result is something truly amazing. “Christmas Time is Here” combines all of these elements in epic fashion, creating a timeless song that still leaves plenty of room for experimentation. It is this ability to adapt to the changing times that has kept Allen so relevant in today’s music landscape, and why his latest track is not just another Christmas song. His work has been gaining popularity as he continues to grow his catalogue and expand his lyrical content.
According to record label owner and music promoter Terrance Schemansky, “Ray Apollo Allen is a recording artist who inspires me every time we touch base. It’s easy to see that he loves making music and reaching out to new fans. I’m one of them!” It is this type of mass appeal that makes “Christmas Time Is Here” a track worth listening to regardless of what you may know about Motown and its resurgence back into mainstream music. Recorded using Pro Tools, the ability for Allen to fashion a completely original work of art centered around an old style sound has never been more apparent.
Allen recorded at Studio win 21, with Producer/Engineer Tyrone Allen. For those looking to find a fresh yet classic sound and an uplifting holiday ballad, look no further than “Christmas Time is Here”.
