First Play Live: Allan Rayman, Roadhouse 01

Judith Lynch


February 18, 2017


Allan Rayman is a man of few words. He prefers to let his music do the talking for him. So when we brought him into CBC Toronto's Studio 211, we weren't altogether sure what we were going to get. But we were as enchanted as Rayman was engaging.

For a little over an hour, this man of mystery sat front and centre in the studio and offered up an exclusive acoustic performance — something he had never done before — including songs from his new record, Roadhouse 01.

Watch Rayman's riveting, stripped-down performance of songs old and new, including "Beverly," "Faust Road," "25.22" and "Sweetheart."

And here is the YouTube playlist:
