Take Me Away #14

take me away new art 3 (GREN PURP)


There is a yard, surrounded by fence, wrapped in barbed wire, guard spires towering overhead and armed men standing atop the towers with a watchful eye. Inside the yard lies a concrete building with dangerous minds and even more dangerous habits that got them stuck inside those concrete walls, with windows sealed by iron bars. This is the place where dreams die and lives waste away as prisoners sit and count the days, hours, minutes till their release. The inmates have nothing but time; time to think, time to remember, time to sit contemplating about life outside those bars.

The location, is the prison from the hit television show titled “Orange Is The New Black”. No this isn’t an editorial piece about the television show, its about a specific character from the show. I know that everyone has their favorite characters but there is one specific character that is not just acting, but also making awesome electronic music. Not many people would expect Pennsatucky to be a DJ. It turns out her name is Taryn Manning, she is talented and is nothing like the character she portrays.


Apparently besides being a talented actress in the film Hustle and Flow and being Pennsatucky in OITNB, Taryn Manning also has amazing tracks such as this one titled “Turn it up”. In this video Taryn is stylish and a pop icon in her own right but with an electronic feel that has me listening intently.

Another one of her tracks that is definitely worth listening to is, “Send Me Your Love” which features Sultan and Ned Shepard. It does a great job of reeling you into her world of Electro-Pop. If you are anything like me, you will agree that she is not only a talented actress but also a talented musician.

Upon further investigation, it is apparent that I have not been paying attention to her career as closely as I should have been. Taryn has been in many amazing films, television shows, music videos and now she is making big waves in the Electro genre. So as the long wait till the next season of Orange Is The New Black is upon us, fill your ears with another amazing track of hers.
