about

When Talain Rayne Blanchon was a senior in high-school he had no piano, no voice, and no clue music would come for his heart like it has. The journey didn’t begin until a teacher helped him buy his first keyboard and record his first song that year. Writing music quickly became Talain’s livelihood, keeping him afloat amidst stormy seasons. He clung to songwriting through college with a fervor that has not subsided. In spring 2009 his growing passion led him to study abroad at the Contemporary Music Center on Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts with 30 other young, aspiring musicians. He thrived on the island, writing music amongst a strong community of like-minded artists, scratching harder at this musical itch that wouldn’t quit and developing a sound all his own.

Talain’s music emanates the creativity and passion of someone who’s been writing and playing for much longer than a mere four years. His dynamic personality is reflected in the melodramatic, electronic-infused, pop-rock that is bound together by his characteristic voice. He draws inspiration from varying influences like Sleeping at Last, Coldplay, Sigur Ros, The Rocket Summer, and Shiny Toy ... As for the songs themselves, they are influenced by nostalgia and his closest relationships, in a form more reminiscent of a child’s dream than a cookie-cutter song. “A lot of the songs have scenes that don’t quite seem to connect, kind of like a child’s dream,” says Talain. “They’re summed up in memories; each scene and every word is a part of the story, part of this child’s dream—” A dream that tugs on listeners’ hearts, despite being incredibly specific to the writer alone. In songs like “Family Wall” he doesn’t hold back personal family struggles: “So tempted to say/ that all the photographs/ all the times we laughed/ WERE THEY REAL?/ Mommy left ten years ago/ with that burger-face pic on the patio.” Nor does he hold back the hope and love that is so integral to his character. In “Owls” he sings for his friends, “Please get inside cause something’s coming/ no emotion, no lies, and no religion/ it’s real enough/ just something I call love.”

When it comes down to it, this raw honesty about love for the people in his life and hope for the future reflects the realization that it’s all for a higher purpose: “I write because it’s what God gave me,” he says. “I love it so much, and I’m ok if I’m the only one who ever listens.” But hopefully if you’re still here reading this bio, it means that Talain is not the only one who listens…

Thanks for stopping by.

Track Name: Dear Sister, Your Brother W/Meg Lynch
Come Back Old lights, and childish fights
do you remember all the good times

when we made fun, and when we were young
watching all those lovers making old rhymes

As I sail out onto the see, all these rocks burning beneath

woah oh oh

Please say everything is okay
tell me we can go play

like we did when we were younger

Oh, Oh well sing and SHOUT
lying on the ground
starring up at worlds beyond our own.

Would you save the stinging bee, if it fell into the ocean
Yes I would, i'd pull it out, like a brother to a sister.

I feel the sting, and hear you shout as you find another mister

woah oh oh

Please say everything is okay
tell me we can go play

like we did when we were younger

Oh, Oh well sing and SHOUT
lying on the ground
starring up at worlds beyond our own.

Cause yea you'll sing when i shout, cause you know I'm gonna make it.

And you'll sing, and I'll shout cause you know were gonna make it

And you'll sing when you shout, cause you know your gonna make it.

MEG
Please say everything is okay
tell me we can go play

like we did when we were younger

Everyone
Oh, Oh well sing and SHOUT
lying on the ground
starring up at worlds beyond our own.

Talain

Come on now
lying on the ground
come over my nova
in a world beyond our own
Ill sing out and shout now
in a world not far away

YOU KNOW ITS TOO HARD TO CALL

So tempted to say that all the photographs, all the times we laughed

when this God thing kicks in through the family wall

Track Name: Attic Lights
The Trees High five
Explosions Collide
And your all benign
your on your own

The trees running bare
with stuff in there hair

and could it be home
and could it be home

So come on up your all alone
with vinyl CD's and megaphone
tuck in your lip your on your way
your riding in an airplane

When big people talk,
with mud in there socks
with stuff her hair and
your already there when your on your own

and could it be home
and could it be home

So come on up your all alone
with vinyl CD's and megaphone
tuck in your lip your on your way
your riding in an airplane

please my darling sis
your sinking lingers
and these attic lights where
this brightness is not yours

And Ill wait for you
but its not much better
And I'll sing for you
but its not much better
And I'll love for you
but its not much better
Come on and I'll sing for you,
but its not much better

Come on and I'll wait for you
But it's not much better
Come on and I'll wait for you
But it's not much better
Come on and I'll love for you
but its not much better
Come on and I'll Love for you
But its not much better

And Ill wait for you
but its not much better
And I'll sing for you
but its not much better
And I'll love for you
but its not much better

So come on up your all alone
with vinyl CD's and megaphone
tuck in your lip your on your way
your riding in an airplane

please my darling sis
your sinking lingers
and these attic lights where
this brightness is not yours

Come on and I'll wait for you
But it's not much better

come on and I'll love for you
but its not much better

Track Name: Car Lamp
VERSE 1
as it gets cold i draw pictures
with fingers on the window of my car
can anybody hear out there
with the disonents of my life

CHORUS
Still Im running to the constants, where I fall back again and again
And ill be there, as a distraction, just to bring your night to an end

VERSE2
Every Rock for every bite
my shadow spinning in a hologent light
so come on over, Give me a listen
Every minute when Im calling, its so blissfully
the same thing Over and over

+CHORUS 2
Still Im running to the constants, where I fall back again and again
And ill be there, a distraction, just to bring your night to an end
can you feel the connection when the car lamps fading
and that lost song that you played them could it be over


BRIDGE
is it enough for me to listen to a lonley homeless song

CHORUS 2
Can I have your Attention is this real
And do you belief in the music that were singing
its all for you and do you belief
can you feel the connection when the car lamps fading
can you feel the connection when the car lamps fading
Track Name: Keep Running Kid
Why are you so pretty?
your a petit purée
Why are you sitting on a lump of haze

wont you stay for a while
your dancing with those little crocodiles
your floating in the back drop
and you find out its all okay

you thought it was a tear drop,
but you saw it was pouring rain

Keep running kid
Keep running kid

And still you pack a punch
Im rolling all my bunches back at home
and would it be nice
if water and ice
could finally love.

wont you stay for a while
your dancing with those little crocodiles
your floating in the back drop
and you find out its all okay

you thought it was a tear drop,
but you saw it was pouring rain

Keep running kid
Keep running kid

Still Im running, im running home

Still Im running, Im running home
so take me and love me, and bring me back home
back to the start
Still Im running, Im running home
so take me and love me and bring me back home
back to the start
Still Im running, Im running home
so take me and love me and bring me back home

were goin home

were goin home

lets go home
