About Talain Rayne
As a high school student, Talain Rayne had no idea that music would eventually serve as a career. In fact, it wasn’t until his senior year that he pursued his passion for music, when a high school teacher purchased his first piano and helped record his first song. Today, the Philadelphia, Pa. native performs alternative, piano-driven pop, drawing inspiration from Coldplay, Sleeping at Last, and fittingly, The Rocket Summer. 

About The Rocket Summer
As a 16-year-old, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and producer, Bryce Avary released his first EP, entitled “The Rocket Summer.” Since the album’s release in 2001, Avary and his band have performed on the worldwide stage, releasing five studio albums in a nine-year span. The Rocket Summer debuted “Life Will Write the Words” in mid-2012, an album that perpetuated the band’s upbeat, lighthearted, power pop style.
