New Single ‘Why Can’t We Dance’ By Onoleigh

The fierce, up-tempo song is a roaring dance floor anthem, the perfect summer anthem about wanting to have a good time, embracing the rush of a feel-good time instead of falling in love.

Nashville-based singer-songwriter Onoleigh has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the industry, including co-writing songs with John Oates (Hall & Oates), Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift), and working with Producer Brandon Hood (Sam Hunt and Rascal Flatts). In the past, she has opened for Rodney Atkins, Jordan Davis & Tyler Rich, Randy Houser, and more. With 260K+ Spotify streams and 13K+ views on YouTube, she is currently set to share the stage with Chris Janson this summer on tour.

With a remarkable ability to harness compassion and empathy as a result of her previos experience in social work as a guidance counselor, Onoleigh’s songwriting has reached listeners on a powerful personal level with songs that are relatable and lean into what others are feeling. Since her debut release ‘Ghost Stories,’ which garnered over 20K streams across platforms in under a month, her songs have been featured by CMT, Music Row, Taste Of Country, and more. Most recently, her song ‘Sunshine & Lemonade’ co-written with John Oates (Hall & Oates), was included in the soundtrack for the movie ‘Gringa,’ which was released earlier this year.

‘Why Can’t We Dance,’ co-written by Onoleigh and Jonathan Wyndham and produced by 4X ACM Award nominee David Dorn, follows Onoleigh’s previously released songs ‘Beautifully Broken,’ co-written with Brandon Hood, ‘Ghost Stories,’ and ‘Make It Hurt,’ written by Maren Morris, Rhett Akins, and Chris DeStefano and featured by Taste of Country.
