Bain and The Foreign Exchange’s Nicolay team up for their psychedelic, emotive new album, ‘Lifetime’.

Minnesota-based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Bain is the latest addition to the growing roster of +FE Music, the label founded and run by rapper/singer Phonte Coleman and Dutch producer Nicolay (also known as the Grammy-nominated soul duo The Foreign Exchange).

After two albums with producer Afrokeys, Bain has teamed with Nicolay for his third full-length album ‘Lifetime’.

Available now to stream and cop on all major digital streaming platforms via +FE Music/EMPIRE, ‘Lifetime’ is a departure from the more R&B-tinged recordings of Bain’s first two albums (2014’s ‘Love In Blue’ and 2019’s ‘Around The Sun’).

With the help from Nicolay’s masterful production, Bain was able to tap into the true depths of his own songwriting and musicianship, cultivating Folk/Soul romantic love songs, as well as abstract, psychedelic and introspective Synthpop records inspired by the likes of Zero 7 and Thievery Corporation.

Recorded between Bain’s home studio and a remote cabin on the Northshore of Lake Superior in Minnesota through his 40th birthday, ‘Lifetime’ is an emotional journey through some of the most formative events of Bain’s career and personal life.

‘Lifetime’ was the first original song Nicolay and I finished together. The lyrics of that song are intentionally abstract, but it reflects the many changes one goes through as they evolve through a lifetime, running the gamut of emotions– from beauty and joy, to sadness and grief, and everything in between… I am a husband and a father and witnessing my two sons growing up has really put my life and purpose into perspective. I’m likely in the middle of my lifetime and much more seasoned than when I first started my artistic journey… I played far more instruments on this album than in the past… I managed to get pretty much every stringed instrument that I own on these songs – from various acoustic and electric guitars to banjo, mandolin, and pedal steel. I want [the music] to uplift listeners… I hope that listeners can escape and get lost in it.” –Bain

More About Bain:
As a fourth-generation singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, music is literally embedded in Davis Bain’s DNA.

Like his forefathers, Davis has harbored a passion for stringed instruments since his youth.

He quickly fell in love with the electric guitar in particular, and enjoyed playing R&B, funk and gospel music in various bands performing in the Minneapolis area.

Davis set his sights on becoming a recording artist after discovering the albums that his estranged father would record and release from his farmhouse studio.

From that moment forward, he has focused on writing, performing and producing his own songs.

Together with his long time friend, music producer Afrokeys, Davis has co-produced and released two full-length albums under the moniker “Bain”: 2014’s ‘Love In Blue’ and 2019’s ‘Around The Sun’.

For his upcoming third full-length album, he has linked up with Grammy nominated music producer Nicolay, best known as one half of independent soul duo and label-operators The Foreign Exchange.

As the lead single and title track, “Lifetime”, illustrates, Davis Bain is fully leaning into the artistry that seems to have been bestowed upon him at birth.
