Pop Goes The Wessels With Ashley Allen

Roadrunner founder Cees Wessels has “popped’ back into active duty in the music business with his new publishing company Robot of The Century Music and first signing, pop singer Ashley Allen.

Wessels founded Metal label Roadrunner Records in 1980 and became the number one record metal label in the world with acts like Machine Head, Type O Negative, Sepultura and Slipknot. Roadrunner also had mainstream international success with the signing of Nickelback.

Unlike Roadrunner Records, Cees’s publishing company Robot of the Century Music has started as pure pop.

He signed Ashley Allen after hearing her song ‘Body Say No, Heart Say Yes’ and has scheduled her debut album for September. Ashley describes her influences as ranging from “Britney Spears, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift to the intensity that is Marilyn Manson and the electronic dance sounds of dub-step to country chart-toppers Rascal Flatts.” Her first single is a song titled ‘Let Go’. “I wrote ‘Let’s Go’ as a power anthem to promote the fact that anything is possible,” she says. “There is no other way to dream than big, and while society may look at things as obscure and out of the ordinary. I say that the weirder the better.”

DJs Wayne G & FFB and Reid Stefan have already done remixes of ‘Let Go’. Wayne G’s credits include remixes for Cher, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Kylie Minogue, Katy Perry, Christina Aguilera, Backstreet Boys, Whitney Houston, Erasure and Kelis.

Ashley Allen ‘Let’s Go’ is out now in Australia via Shock and available on iTunes.
