Who Am I?

Have we met yet? Let me intoduce myself. My name is Talain. Pronounced like "Salon" but with a "T". My mother & Father put there names together to create it (Tally & Alain). I'm a Philly native musician, owner of a fluffy cat named AVA. My Favorite apple is the jazz apple, I prefer the ZOO more than the Aquarium, and I make films. More importantly, I make music.

IAMTALAINRAYNE

I'm Shipwrecked! 

Yep. That pretty much sums it up. Let me explain. In the kickstarter video above, I state that I have been stranded in my apartment without a way of getting around for 2 months. I made that video almost 4 months ago with my friend Chris. So really its been almost 6 months!! Music is my livelihood, it is how I survive. It is my passion. Unfortunately music at times involves a lot of traveling. Without a van, I've been moving at a rate of 5 MPH (Metaphorically speaking). Not having a vehicle, more importantly a van, has slowed so many things down. This has begun taking an affect on my income. Que sad violins . It's an ordeal and a process getting to shows. Though I've been stuck in my apartment, it hasn't been all that bad. I've had serious bonding time with my cat Ava. I've also written 19 new songs. Yes! 19! Sadly I need to narrow it down for the new album. Nevertheless, I want to get these songs to you! Alas! I cannot without a vehicle. Without a vehicle, I struggle to bring in income (gotta pay for these songs!), and I can't get to the places to record. In today's musical empire, an artist has the ability to create his own "Record Label". Kickstarter has made it possible for musicians like me to make this happen. Will you be my label? Even by backing me with $1, you're bringing me closer to my dream.

My friend Nathan Johnson of "The Made Shop" once said, "You don't have to play by their rules if you dont require their rewards."

I don't want their rewards.

Today's music industry is shifting. You are the only ones that can get me to the next level.

Here's to making new rules.

MY GOAL.

My financial kickstarter goal is $10,000. It's a bit of a jump. But with that, It will just be enough to get me a van and a new keyboard. Please remember, if we do not meet the goal, then there is no dough, no money, no green. Nada.

You ready?? Deep breath. Lets do this.

    "I LOVE YOU TALAIN, BUT NOT YOUR MUSIC": Hey Talain, My name is "So&So". Listen, I've never really connected with your music. Mainly because I only like Reggae-Opera, and white boys playing pianos give me the heeby-jeeby's. But I have watched your passionate pursuit in your musical career, and I just want to support YOU! So here's some money. You can keep all the vinyl and package stuff at home!

    Love always

    "YOUR SONG": I am currently recording my sophomore album, and can't wait for you to hear it!! I hope there are a few of you out there that connect with some of the songs I am writing. With this upcoming album, it is made up of emotions and people that have been a part of my life. Some songs are about situations I never thought I would be in. Some of these songs are about certain people! If you buy this package, I will write a song for you, and it will be on the next album. Yes, the next album (it might even be the next single). Crazy right? Money unfortunately controls a lot of things. It does not control me nor make me who I am. But It's how the world runs. If you're willing to spend $7,000 on me for this reason, then why wouldn't I write a song for you? It will be about this whole situation, you and your passion. It will not be in a cheesy way though. I will ask many questions about you (through skype, emails, ect.). I will name the song. Then in parenthesis next to the song and on the album will be "for (your name here)". This package is a wild card, but you just never know. The Date and Completion of this album is still currently up in the air.
