GRAMMY® NOMINATED SINGER/SONGWRITER RAY DALTON TO RELEASE DEBUT SOLO SINGLE TITLED “IF YOU FALL” ON AUGUST 25

Grammy® nominated singer/songwriter RAY DALTON is releasing his first-ever solo single onAugust 25 titled “If You Fall.” The song will be available on iTunes and all digital outlets.   “If You Fall” was co-written by Daltonand Scott Effman (Chris Brown, Kelly Clarkson, Mike Posner), produced by Rufus Dipper, mixed by Michael Bruaer (eight time Grammy® winner, Coldplay, John Mayer) and mastered by Joe La Porta (Imagine Dragons, The Weeknd, The Killers).

Dalton is co-writer and featured performer on such global hits as ” Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (feat. Ray Dalton), the worldwide smash “Don’t Worry” by Madcon (feat. Ray Dalton), and “Stronger” by DJ Arty (feat. Ray Dalton). “Can’t Hold Us” has yielded almost half a billion streams on Spotify, and a half a billion streams on YouTube. Certified 6x Platinum by the RIAA, the track hit #1 on four Billboard charts, including the Hot 100, and was a chart-topper worldwide.  Named “The Most Streamed Song of 2013” by Spotify, and its massively popular Grammy® nominated video – featuring scenes with Dalton shot while on tour in New Zealand, also earned the singer two MTV Video Music Awards “Don’t Worry” hit #1 in more than 21 countries, and “Stronger” has nearly three million streams on Spotify.

DJ and record producer Ryan Lewis first contacted Dalton on Facebook for a possible collaboration in 2011, when Dalton was in the midst of pursuing his goal to collaborate with every known hip-hop artist in his hometown of Seattle, Washington. The multi-talented singer/songwriter was hoping that any of the powerhouse hooks he was creating would help him get discovered as an artist. The one that caught on – “Can’t Hold Us” – helped spur the track from the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Grammy® winningalbum, THE HEIST, into an ongoing global phenomenon.
