"ADREIN one of the brightest, talented, young and new undiscovered RAP/R&B acts out today, he is quickly establishing himself around the Country. ADREIN'S unique and Flow is like no other out in the music industry today. He combines his soothing voice with nice dance moves every time he performs and always uses his electrifying energy to capture the attention of his audience. He wrote his first album "THE BEGINNING" in 2003. The album was a big success on the streets of Maryland and Philadelphia, Mississippi even though it was an underground album.
Every since ADREIN was 9, he always wanted to be an entertainer. He found his flow when cyphering at school during lunch time. When he wasn't cyphering at school he would gather all his friends to write and record at a local studio.Adrein lived in a houe were family would listen to Country, R&B, Oldes & Rock music.
At 15 Adrein started to listen to R&B and Hip Hop music. Watching artist like Boyz II Men, Jodeci, and Michael Jackson made him want to become an entertainer in music that much more. By the age of 17 Adrein's mother gave a demo to a local DJ he told Adrein he should persure music. Adrein knew that music was what he really wanted to do in life, often lieing about his age to preform at local nightclubs. At that time Adrein went on to pursue his dream by starting to let his music be heard by others.
Adrein's strong passion for music is surely to take him far in due time. Having that never quit spirit, Adrein is what a lot of independent artist need. His sharp style will be soon captivating audiences all over the World. Adrein plans on reaching out to every race to become one of the Worlds greatest entertainers ever. Now that is a true entertainer: Adrein.
"Aerport Rocking Chairs music takes influence from various styles, including rock n roll, jazz, funk, bluegrass, blues, and surprisingly, jungle. The drummer, Scott Shapiro, is an accomplished DJ spinning house/intelligent jungle for the last 10 years. Shapiro also has long standing London based record contract for his original jungle tracks. His back beat has lead this band to explore sounds unheard of in a rock band. He can also be heard singing some of the covers during live shows. Scott Sherr is the acoustic guitarist and lead singer with multiple credentials from his days at UCLA. His voice seems to get better with every gig and every song he writes. Its deep, rich tones with a raspy air are unique unto himself. The self professed driver of the bus, otherwise known as the bassist, is Joe Scalea. Scaleas style is as varied as his influences, building a sound that'll keep you moving and knock you over, if youre not careful. Rounding out the band is the lead guitarist, Dan Gohzansky, whos roots are purist American rock n roll. His lead style has been shaped by everything from the jazz and blues greats of the fifties, to the newest independents on the New York and Portland music scene. From clean to crunch, Gohzanksy is truly a versatile lead guitarist."

"Fiercely loyal to family and friends, Asi is most determined to speak to, about, and for the often overlooked but musically vibrant MD/DC/VA metropolitan region. Having turned down numerous opportunities to relocate to other more popular states such as New York and Atlanta, Asi has remained true to his hometown, determined to build a strong regional hip hop community, and draw the industrys attention to the underdogs of the hip hop game. As the founder and CEO of Tantallion Sun music, Asi combines his passions and perspectives as an artist with his incredible business savvy and vision to find and represent the best musicians that the metropolitan area has to offer. He has used his business training, economics degree, and honest values to place quality at its center, promoting the exposure and success of people and music that lived up to these ideals. Creatively and corporately, Tantallion Sun is designed to be an artists utopia and a music lovers dream, much like his own music. Somehow, Asi has managed to walk the line By thinking outside the traditional hip hop box but always staying true to his musical roots, his story telling, impeccable delivery, and genuine voice make Asi a down to earth artist with an unearthly talent. His vision for the future is as sharp as his style, and his following is as steady as his flow. Asi is indeed an artist on the move.Stay tuned for the Grand Opening."
