Veteran of the soul music genre Ray Apollo Allen has been a main stay in the doo wop scene for more than 30 years, and now brings you the latest in his catalog, the upbeat, dance inspiring track “It’s a Party (Block Party)”. A modern soul and R&B track infused with the sounds of past decades, Apollo has beautifully combined the soulful style of years past with the R&B faculties of today to create a song that is worthy of adding to his long resume of successful work.
A member of the Apollo Brothers for 20 years and The Orioles for 9 years, Ray Apollo Allen has shared the stage with some of the most influential acts in R&B, soul, and doo wop ever. Now pursuing a solo career, Allen recently released his latest track titled “It’s A Party (Block Party)”, an infectious, uplifting tune reminiscent of some of the greats including the Eisley Brothers, Supremes, Smoky Robinson, and many more.
Showcasing his creative talent and ability to adopt to the changing face in music, Allen’s song is all about enjoying the world around you and quite frankly, simply letting loose. As the listener, you are transported into sort of a time warp where Motown is still the talk of the town. Brassy instrumentals laid over Apollo’s deep, soulful bellow provides everything you loved about soul, while also providing a crisp, modern sound.
Recorded at Studio Win 21 with noted producer Tyrone Allen, the song is the latest in a body of work that has solidified Allen as a rising talent in the genre. One of the hardest workers in the industry, Allen has appeared at a number of concerts and galleria events, proving that he still has what it takes to entertain a crowd. You can check out “It’s A Party (Block Party)” on YouTube, as well as a number of online music outlets including CD Baby and Spotify.
