I find comfort on my own thought

Rayman is a walking juxtaposition — his raspy voice and eerily enticing lyrics demand a listener’s attention, while he himself prefers to keep his head down and let the music speak for itself. Little is known of the rising genre-melting artist, who fuses R&B swagger with hip-hop grit all while spinning compelling stories much like a country artist can — and the mystique is intentional…

Ben Lovett/Keyboardist/Vocalist from Mumford & Sons:  “I came back from a tour a year or so ago and… there was music blaring out and the whole office was vibing. They were dancing around, singing along, and I felt like I had just been completely left out of the party and that was quite rare. If that’s happening normally it’s some classic hit, but it was something I had never heard before. It was Allan Rayman, obviously. I immediately got infected with the bug, went into my office, sat down and listened to what was Hotel Allan front and back and was completely blown away.”

Lyrics from Tennessee:

…Well, this boy, he needs no company
This life is sharp like Pittsburgh steel…
It may be tough, don’t follow me
This boy, he needs no company
No company needed (Don’t need it)
I find comfort on my own thought…


Notes: OnestoWatch.com – 10 Reasons Why Allan Rayman Is The Most Mysterious Man in Music

  1. Hhmmm… enjoyed the vibe and the players. Couldn’t get over the new thought that they were trying to achieve a feeling or ambience. That is what some artists do – perform in order to achieve or to receive something back.
    While others are expressing their very being without attachment.
    Perhaps we need to be there in person to be sure 💛

    Play “Tennessee”
    on Amazon Music

    High and dry
    Take me down by Tennessee
    I’m high and dry, don’t follow me
    Love me twice, didn’t run from me
    Well, this boy, he needs no company
    This life is sharp like Pittsburgh steel
    [?] with my piss-warm ale
    It may be tough, don’t follow me
    This boy, he needs no company
    No company needed
    I find comfort on my own thought
    Through palm reading, no, no
    Couldn’t give me what I don’t got
    I don’t want a lifestyle like you, not me
    Well, I’m a simple kind of man
    With a simple kind of plan
    Like to keep it low key
    This is my time, my money
    I’ll spend it how I want, son
    This is my dream, my lungs
    I’ll die when I want some
    And don’t follow me
    I don’t see eye to eye with society
    And I’m a lost boy, forever young
    Don’t expect an apology

    She loves me still
    And I don’t know, I don’t know
    I don’t know why
    My girl, she loves me still
    She loves me still
    And I don’t know, I don’t know
    I don’t know why
    My girl, she loves me still

    She want a James Dean rebel
    White shirt, blue jeans
    Damn, Lana Del Rey
    Look what you’ve done to these teens
    Well this is something for the fathers who don’t know better
    (Goodnight, Daddy)
    Your girl’s falling for the bad guy
    Saw the car, she don’t know better
    So get the shotgun ready, y’all
    This a different type of go-getter
    There’s something rotten in getting [?]
    When the [?] are getting old weather
    Oh, I’m no good, I’m no good
    Not me, not me
    Please don’t follow

    She loves me still
    And I don’t know, I don’t know
    I don’t know why
    My girl, she loves me still
    She loves me still
    And I don’t know, I don’t know
    I don’t know why
    My girl, she loves me still
