NEW VISUAL: Dom Mcallister drops “Only One”

image1(1).JPGDom McAllister, the rising 22 year-old London singer/songwriter follows on from his two critically-acclaimed, wave-making releases ‘In Time’ and ‘Walking’ with newest offering ‘Only One’. With both of his former tracks entering the Top 10 US and UK Spotify Viral Charts and building over half a million streams and counting, Dom cements his position as a truly exciting emerging talent.dm1.gifThe young Londoner’s new release marks a fresh installment of a rare mix of raw ability and soul from an artist who’s making serious numbers both here and in the US. With credible support coming from BBC Radio 1Xtra and a plethora of tastemakers including The Line of Best Fit and CLASH, Dom’s newest offering sees him glide into another immaculate, upbeat electonic instrumental with what’s fast becoming a vocal known for its old-school character.IMG_3574.jpegHaving just completed his first tour support with Rationale, Dom also cut his songwriting chops on the new Tinie Tempah album, co-writing ‘Find Me’ ft. Jake Bugg. With a triumphant Roundhouse Rising show on 22 June, Dom is building a notable trail of events and the kind of fanbase that feels like way beyond his two releases. It wasn’t until last year that he was discovered by two of the hottest young players in the UK music industry in producer Bless Beats (Wiley, Tinie Tempah, Jess Glynne) and his Ragamuffin Records co-founder, songwriter Jin Jin (Clean Bandit, Little Mix, Jax Jones) – after Bless heard Dom singing in the corridors of The Roundhouse, Camden where he had been recording his demos.dm.gifWhat Bless and Jin have uncovered is an exceptionally talented singer embedded in the story-telling ways of his young idol Sam Cooke. It’s the flourishes of natural soul that come across in the 22 year-old that really excites: Jamie Woon, and Kwabs’ effortless, London style spring to mind. Assured, talented and curiously humble, Dom feels like something very special.
