Hooligan Heart

Here is a song by Miss Hazel. Her lovely voice sings backing vocals on many of my songs. She also played a lot of keyboard tracks, and bass tracks. Here she is singing and playing ukulele. She told me that this song was inspired from the books, How To Train Your Dragon. I made the creepy animated doll video. Your welcome.

I Am Alive ~ YouTube

I am slow but surely getting my crazy animated videos up for my songs. As I complete each one I post it on YouTube into a playlist. Listen to my new album, I Am Alive, and watch my strange animated videos. Thank you!

Far Away From Home

I have been a camp counselor in the arts and crafts room since 1984. That’s about 3 generations, so now I teach the kids of my kids from the 80’s. They all look like their moms! It’s a bit surreal.

Because I love all things summer camp, I write a lot of campfire songs while I am there. Go Gray! Sorry, I lose my head when I start to think about camp.

This song is about all the insecurities that flood my brain before each summer. Being a camp counselor is a really hard job, but you usually end up meeting the best friends of your entire life, so it’s worth it. The balance between extreme difficult conditions and amazing people to suffer along side, really creates a bond that is like none other. Spend 8 weeks without a break in the woods of Maine with a bunch of strangers, and you will see that at the end of the 8 weeks, you will be strangers no more. It gets ugly, and it gets beautiful. The mix can be overwhelming. I love it.

I would like to thank Wiggly Loaf and Camp Wiggly for the animation in this video. Check out the Wiggly Loaf mobile games at: WigglyLoaf.com

This is a song from my new album, I Am Alive, and I beg you to check it out while I still am. Thanks in advance. Jay~

Barely Alive

I tend to be a perfectionist. Usually a promise from me is as good as done. When things fall apart, and failure is unavoidable, I tend to stress out. I don’t like to brand myself with failure. I want to reach my goal and accomplish the things I set out to achieve.

This song is about those times when my word meant nothing. When I did not do as I said, for whatever reason. When things went wrong. In troubled times such as this, all I have is the chance to react properly to the mistake. When I step up to fix it, to erase the error, all I can hope is that people believe I am trying with all I have, to do what is right. To do as I promised.

I put so much pressure on myself, but it’s because I care. You have no idea what I put myself through. Maybe this song will help explain. Peace out, much love. Jay ~

Halloween Animation

Halloween AnimationI wanted to celebrate my repaired hard drive with a brand new Halloween Animation. This is Monster Hunter by Rain Station. From the Halloween themed CD, Dark Ride. I just finished Flashin’ it up, and here it is. Halloween is a great time of year, so get out your chainsaw with Monster Hunter and party it up. Now that the Haunted Hard Drive has been repaired by the kind folk in Toronto, Mark and I can get back to working on our latest music project. Maybe… you see… Now that the holidays are here, time is going to be hard to find. Mark, are you out there? Have fun Trick O’ Treatin’ and I hope to see you soon! Happy Halloween everyone, and to all boys and ghouls a good night!

Making a movie or video? We have music!

Hoagie and mopeheadMark and I have been recording forever. And when I say forever, I mean that we are old. Far too old to be out touring around away from our families. Instead we like to get our recordings into movies and films. A lot of folk out there like to make movies, shorts, animation, or videos, and many of you need music. We have all sorts of music here at the Rain Station, and we’d like to be part of any movie or video you are working on. Our music ranges from bare bones rock and roll, pop, heavy mellow, spooky Halloween music, and Mark’s super scary Pumpkinland Hauntscape CD’s. If you are making a drama, comedy, feel good movie, science fiction, action, suspense, or horror, we have music you could use. We have a sliding scale depending if your movie is big budget, or a student film, or home made movie. If your movie is not big budget, then you can use our music for free.

To play Rain Station music in your movie or video project you must simply include music credits for: RainStation.com and post a copy of the final video project to us for our collection (DVD, .mov, .wmv…)
Please see our Creative Commons link for complete mumbo jumbo. It’s like this, if your project is big budget and makes money, you should share some with us, but if your project is for school, film festivals, or just for fun, you can use our music for free as long as you give RainStation.com credit.
Let us know about your project so we can link to your site!
