Tainui Richmond, a luminary in his own realm, stands as the sole embodiment of his distinctive self within the vast expanse of the Universe—a bona fide paragon of singularity, or as he might whimsically quip, a veritable "boi" like no other.


Having traversed the realm of service and libations, Richmond honed his acumen while tending to the nocturnal denizens, endowing himself with a repertoire of practiced wit and charismatic allure. His purpose, perhaps, was to kindle a glimmer of luminosity amidst the patron's mundane existence, if not to amuse himself. It is within this prism of expertise and an excruciatingly off-kilter comedic sensibility that Richmond emerges, a radiant, resplendent jester bursting onto the stage like an emotional detonation in the deepest recesses of one's soul—unleashing torrents of mirth and elation akin to the euphoric reunion with a cherished, long-lost confidant.


Within his ethereal, lo-fi soundscapes, Richmond has the capacity to ensnare one's senses, akin to scaling the snow-kissed peaks of indie-folk mountains. Yet, at the summit, an unanticipated gust carries melancholic whispers, eliciting a curious amalgamation of laughter and tears. Think… Daniel Johns serenading atop the sonic tapestry of Pet Sounds, smearing the essence of existential quandaries akin to the brushstrokes of Elliot Smith. As a fervent admirer aptly expressed, "Its like a magic feeling, I feel like I could do anything!" Tainui's artistry is an indubitable phenomenon that must not be forsaken, an experience to be ardently seized and cherished.
