Mayne – No Hook


Deep emotions and unique lyrics combine controversially on new music from Mayne

Landover, MD – Originally from Mississippi and raised in Maryland, Jamel “Mayne” has always been a soulful guy whose emotions run deep. Moving around quite a bit as a child, he found a passion for art, human skill, listening to soulful music and writing, and often wrote poetry to better express the riot of emotions running through his mind. He would soon discover the potential of his poetry after joining the Marines right out of high school, paired with a roommate who played the guitar. The two had one thing in common, the love of music. Mayne quickly discovered that the poems he’d written for so many years worked even better as lyrics on top of his roommate’s original guitar riffs.

Not until years later did Mayne discover what he stood for and knew exactly how he needed to deliver it. He broke back into the music scene with the EP “Soul Speak,” which he says is about spiritual growth. The single titled “No Hook” – with its intoxicating beat and melody – is comprised of different songs, bands and artists in a way that solidifies what he feels his song should represent, that being teaching and guiding through music, like a lot of the music he enjoys to this day.

His newest project is a two-track EP called “Moonlight Dream,” which explores the double meaning behind things like growing up in the streets or the false face that the world often presents through the paradigm of culture and technology. 

“I would consider myself a spiritually focused artist who is speaking with intent to connect to the emotions and spirit of the listeners, rather than the ego,” he said. “When I craft songs, I write with the aim to speak not to follow the trend but for the sole purpose of speaking from true inner feeling bringing different perspectives on life, love and passion of having faith and finding purpose. I like to think of myself as being very knowledgeable about different styles of music, and I’m open to listening to a lot of different genres. All forms of music I believe has an energy that can either lead to the promotion of negativity or positivity, destruction or creation. I look deeply into situations and events, I’m an analytical person and my music I believe or at least try to help people associate with the emotions and true feelings that come from what’s going on around them.”

Mayne said there are a lot of roots of alternative rock to his music. But even that descriptor doesn’t truly do his signature style justice. It’s more of a guide than anything else, as Mayne prides himself on bringing an original sound that nods to what’s popular today, but also stretches the boundaries of what’s progressive and new. 

“My music has a lot of double meanings in the songs,” he said. “I know not everyone is going to listen and get what I’m saying in the underlying message, so I also try to make the track relatable for the conscious as well as those who just want to hear beats.  I don’t always succeed but I make the attempt. But if you were to really listen to it, you’ll see that there’s actually something deeper there. Only a person who is more aware and conscious will understand what my music is really supposed to say. But really, at the end of the day, I want my music to just be something you can vibe to that brings you an energy that creates and love. My music is not negative or meant to try and destroy. It wants to rebuild. I don’t want to be known for putting anyone down, it’s enough of that. When you have a platform like this, it comes with a lot of responsibility. I don’t want to perpetuate a negative cycle even if I have done something that maybe seen as being THE WAY. I’m trying to figure out a new way to get my point across in more positive and creative ways to engage.”
