Jay Allen Signs With ONErpm Nashville
Singer-songwriter Jay Allen has signed with ONErpm Nashville.
ONErpm will also handle distribution for Allen’s new music, including his next single, “Jello Shot,” co-written with his longtime producer Micah Wilshire and Cory Batten. The rowdy single will be released June 16 on all platforms, followed by a video premiering June 30.
The Iowa native and former Voice contestant has recently been featured on ABC’s World News Tonight, PeopleTV, and in People and Forbes magazines, among others. He was selected as a Highway Find on Sirius XM in 2017 with his song “Sounds Good to Me,” and won the 2022 Country Now Award as Favorite Competition Contestant.
Allen was also presented with the Alzheimer’s Association’s Caregiving Award in 2019. After seeing his mother suffer from the debilitating effects of Alzheimer’s, Allen wrote the moving tribute, “Blank Stares.” A video of him performing the song with his mother went viral, with over 500 million views. His mother has since passed, but Allen continues to tour the country as an advocate for the Alzheimer’s Association, and the song has gone on to raise over $100 million to help fight the disease.
“After years of fighting against Alzheimer’s, I feel like it’s finally time to start having fun, and I believe it’s what my mother would want as well,” he says. “It’s awesome how God works and connects you with the right people at the right time. Emmanuel Zunz and Tim Wipperman are like big brothers to me, along with the rest of the talented and hard-working team.” Allen adds enthusiastically, “This is going to be a blast, and I’m pumped to show everyone what we’ve been working on.”
“Jay Allen is one of the most driven, focused and versatile talents we’ve signed,” says Wipperman, Managing Director of ONErpm Nashville. “He has that rare capability to believably sing a tender ballad about his mom, then switch to a rockin’, bootie-shaking dance song and kick butt. We’re stoked to have him.”
Allen is performing with a full band on Sunday, June 11, at 6 p.m. on the Hard Rock stage during CMA Music Fest week in Nashville.
