Born in Charleston, South Carolina in 1982 Terrell Porter better known as Jaecyn Bayne spent his childhood infatuated with Hip-Hop. From the sounds of Rakim, Jay-Z, Lauren Hill and more, as a teenager Bayne had no idea how the sounds of his favorite artists would provide the passion he holds so dear today in the design and craft of his own music. Moving to Indianapolis, IN at the age of 15 Bayne continued to build his repertoire of musical favorites while truly embracing everything Hip-Hop culture had to offer. It wasn’t until several years later where Terrell Porter decided to embrace his love for the music and culture and become the artist the world now knows as Jaecyn Bayne.
In 2010, Bayne hooked up with a famed Jazz group “The Headhunters” of former Herbie Hancock fame and was personally selected to appear on the groups first single titled “Funk Wit Us (D-Funk)” featuring Snoop Dogg, George Clinton, & Killah Priest (Wu-Tang). Impressed by Bayne’s content, delivery and charisma, The Headhunters featured Jaecyn prominently on their album “Platinum”. The album was given top honors by Jazz and Progressive music enthusiasts alike as one of the finest contemporary releases of 2011.
Bayne’s vocal appearances alongside Canibus and the Headhunters coupled with his new found love for the open road and live showmanship and the growing popularity of a free weekly freestyle series Bayne started in the name “Audio Therapy” all played a part in his 2011 signing to Owl Studios / Allegro Distribution. After a year of more press, more shows, and non-stop album construction, Jaecyn Bayne’s National Debut “Audio Therapy: The Album” is HERE! The album boasts an all-star line-up of features and producers including Styles P, Fred the Godson, Canibus, Street Runner, Bronze Nazareth, MIZBEATS, J. French, and more.
