Music: Getting Money by tAllent – New London, CT

tAllenttAllent has been making music since the beginning of 2009, using Pro Tools to engineer and Reason for beat production. A University of Rhode Island Varsity football Alumni, tAllent has shifted his work ethic, determination, persistence, and passion from the football field, to the recording studio. His extremely catchy hooks, powerful verses, and distinct voice are among the things that separate him from other Hip Hop artists, delivering an overall style you can’t help but pay attention to, and more than likely will enjoy. He is currently promoting his latest tape, “More Than It Seems”, available on all major digital distribution sites including Amazon, iTunes, and Spotify!
Check out his single, “Getting Money” below and find out some of the secrets behind this song.
Why did you select this song as your current single?
I selected this song as my current single because not only is it my favorite song on my latest tape, but also a fan favorite, the song with the most positive feedback. I also kept the production in house with one of my partners from my area, more reason to push the record.
How does this single relate to the rest of the Album, EP or Mix-tape?   
This song is a really good representation of the album as a whole, though the title is “Getting Money, the lyrics represent the day to day activity and obstacles faced in order to get that money, and see success in this music business. Very fitting of the album title, “More Than It Seems”
What was the writing process for the song?  
I started writing this song as soon as I got the beat, a melody just came to me and I found myself playing with words and emotions to match the melody. Soon after I was able to come up with a full Chorus. It wasn’t until I got to the studio days after, that I would finish writing and come up with the verse content. That part poured out of me, with the beat blasting, I just paced in the studio and began turning real life scenarios on this music journey, into witty punchlines.
What does this song’s lyric mean to you?
These lyrics are a reminder to me of how far I’ve come, and to be happy where I am, but never satisfied.
What would it be like to see you in person performing this song?  
Seeing me perform this live would make this song really come full circle, you’ll see and feel the energy and passion you heard in the audio version.
Could your fans summarize who you are as an artist by this song?  
I wouldn’t say this is my defining song, but I think it sums me up as an artist. Witty verses with great cadence and punchlines, and powerful melodic and catchy choruses…yeah that’s me right there.
Is there a video planned and or completed and if so, what was the idea behind the video?
At the moment we don’t have a video for this record, just the audio is available for stream or purchase.
One last question, what is your motivation behind your music?  
My motivation for my music is getting it out to the people who really enjoy it, and there are a lot of these people. I have a sincere passion for music in general so to be able to create great music and share and enjoy it with others is a blessing.
