Jack Rayner – ‘Daydream’

Jack Rayner grew up not far from Hollywood Boulevard, and is definitely one of the many from the heart of Hollywood with a story to tell of his lifelong journey, working hard on his ever-evolving career. Starting out as a choreographer before becoming a music producer, his resume is as long as your arm and includes television, film, and live shows that travel around the world. He’s contributed musically to the Katy Perry Prismatic Tour, and the Britney Spears’ Till The World Ends Tour, and with the Magic Mike Live shows on three continents. He’s a self-made master who’s never been signed to a manager or agent, his talent can be heard in box office films like Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL as well as the hit TV shows America’s Got Talent, World Of Dance and Lip Sync Battle. But despite his strong work ethic and heavy work schedule, Jack Rayner’s always makes time for projects that pique his interest.

Dancers Sebastian Melo Taveira and Hannah Cleeve are stunning in Jack Rayner’s new music video for his new single, ‘Daydream’. Over the past past year, Rayner sat down and poured his heart out into two songs of complete contrast – ‘Daydream’, and ‘Hold On Me – Jack Rayner Remix’, featuring Karma. He refers to the pair of dance-based clips as ‘Love and Heartache’. as they look at love through different lenses. Choreographed by Alison Faulk (Pink, Madonna) and filmed in a cathedral in London, ‘Daydream’ is a duet that is both delicate and adventurous, with guitar played by Rod Castro (Beyoncé, Bebe Rexa) performing as the voice of Sebastian, the cello, performed by Danica Pinner, is the embodiment of Hannah’s voice. The clip is taken from the short film of the same name, and the dancers move in tandem, with the climax seeing their bodies drawn close and their hopes high: a great thing to see in these troubled times.
