Fresh New Rap Artists Tony And Bain Publish First Official Release, “Volume One”

Rap artists and former soldiers Tony and Bain have released their first official release, “Volume One” to wide critical acclaim. The album is heavy-hitting, with brilliant, heartfelt verses in both rhyme and meter. The beats are steady and pounding, the melodies unobtrusive and appropriate for the mature tone Tony and Bain comprise. Their themes are socially conscious, perhaps the best example of this being their video single, “War Story.”

Being themselves self-proclaimed “modern-day war poets,” Tony and Bain talk about their military service in the most honest voices possible. Of the violence they experienced, Tony and Bain rap such lines as, “I'm a lead farmer... Some people walk on eggshells; I walk on shell casings.” It would seem, however, that music has been their salvation. “I don't need a shrink though,” they rap, “give me a mic, and I'll spit it.”

The musical duo, though plainly well-suited to one another in tone, sound, and attitude, have their musical foundations in remarkably different histories and geographies. Brendan Bain was born in British Columbia, and by twelve years old had begun learning guitar. He entered a heavy metal rock band before graduating high school. He served two tours of duty in Afghanistan on the front lines, and also as part of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games security force. His experiences and resultant diagnosis of PTSD Tony and Bain have documented in “War Story.”

Leagues away, Tony was born in San Fernando, Trinidad. When he was 4, his family relocated to Canada seeking a higher standard of life. His mother entered him at age 7 into piano lessons. It would prove life-changing. By 16 he had become proficient in not only piano, but also trombone, percussion, bass, and guitar. He joined the army at 19, where he found himself unable to make use of his instruments, and was forced to focus on rap as an art form. He joined Bain in the recording studio shortly after having met him, along with Toxsic, “the Villain,” the third member of their musical troupe.
“Volume One” by Tony and Bain is released on Reza Records as of late November, 2012.
