about

Telamor exists to bridge the gap between the classic rock of yesterday and the producer-driven pop of today. The mission of Telamor is to take guitar-based rock and re-invent it for the twenty-first century. It's a new sound made up of the scraps of musical history. Telamor is bilingual: it speaks the language of rock and the language of today's radio R&B and pop. The singing is passionate and blues-based, but the production is today's: big beats, heavy bottom, Latin percussion, dance tempos. If you're looking for a new course for pop rock music, Telamor is for you.

REVIEW - THE NOISE Music New England, March 2016
Telamor (98% Tom Hauck, 2% friends) has to be one of the most prolific artists out there today. About every six month Telamor serves up a new disc of guitar oriented rock for the 21st century.

"Outside the Lines" leads off with “Brave Heart” where a choppy vocal melody creates a hook within itself. Love comes and goes with “Speed Queen” running through the night. “Trippin'” could be a reaction to the Speed Queen, but more likely another female flaunting a hippy attitude. “Flash” has a great sustained vocal chorus with a cool ’60s sound.

Tom’s got another woman swinging by for some action – and her name is “Ramona.” The fun cover of “Great Balls of Fire” sounds like Fred Schneider (B-52s) has hooked up with Jerry Lee Lewis. “It’s Love Miss Veronica” has a Kinks flavor to it. The chorus of “Fakin’ It” could’ve been a Devo track if the Ohio band lost there mechanical ways. Tom’s clever swing rock interpretation of Lil Wayne’s “How to Love” makes it sound like a throw back to the ’60s. “Rock All Night” closes the disc with a perfect bar-band rave up.

Telamor’s common thread that keeps you coming back for more is Tom Hauck’s distinctive vocals. "Outside the Lines" has the future in mind while it borrows from the past. Pick it up today. (T Max)

REVIEW -- 5 stars!
“The Stylus” – The student newspaper of the College at Brockport, State University of New York
By Morgan Bulman

The group Telamor has shown its true potential with the release of its new album “Outside The Lines”. The album showcases a peculiar genre of music that is unique in how it “exists to bridge the gap between the classic rock of yesterday and the producer-driven pop of today,” according to Telamor.

I think the album can be categorized as a subgenre of alternative rock.

This new album makes that fact abundantly clear: its fantastic bass play along with some spectacular guitar solos is reminiscent of classic rock from the 70s and 80s. The rhythmic lyrics paired with a steady and cool voice can be related to many male pop singers today. The mixture of these two elements leads to an energetic and funky album.

Many songs like “Faking It” give listeners a glimpse of the crazy beats in the pop hits of the 70s. This catchy song is definitely one to check out from the album.

Telamor also does something many unproven artists cannot: it successfully covers an extremely popular rock song. Its cover of “Great Balls of Fire” does the original song justice. It is a fantastic snippet which pays tribute to their past inspirations.

While the cover is mainly rock, we can see a complete opposite rhythm in the song “Trippin’”. Its psychedelic sound takes us back to examples of the 60s and 70s many of our parents are still fond of.

One of the best songs on the album has to be the concluding piece, “Rock All Night”. It has a pure rock tune nostalgic of dive bars and hanging out with friends by the beach.

The one song that leaves the largest impression upon me is that of the group’s remix of “How To Love” by rap artist Lil’ Wayne. This exemplifies the band’s talent to turn a wide range of music into a song that fits its style very easily. Telamor turns a good Lil’ Wayne song that focuses largely on the beat to drive it turining it into a soft rock song infusing pop to make the lyrics stand out well.

The lyrics seem to be woven together, giving off the impression that all the songs are connected in one way or another. The only song we don’t really see this in is the opener, “Brave Heart”. The song is jagged and broken up. This was no doubt done on purpose by Tom Hauck, the lead singer was a veteran of the music business.

Hopefully, this new album and his work with Telamor will finally give him the recognition he rightfully deserves. He has a fantastic voice which serves as the highlight of “Outside The Lines”. The sound is a nice change of pace from the typical pop we hear today. I suggest you check it out because Telamor seems to have done something quite special.
5/5 Stars

Track Name: Brave Heart
Copyright 2016 Thomas A. Hauck / Olex Music / ASCAP

Let me tell you about my girl
She can be as sweet as sugar
Sting you like a bee
And rip you like a cougar

She’s been down before
And she always gets back up
The people who hate turn back
They got no power to disrupt

Brave heart
She’s taking on the world
Brave heart
I’m so proud that she’s my girl

Ain’t no mountain too high
Ain’t no valley too wide
She’s going for the prize
Gonna soar into the skies

If you give her half a glass
She’ll say it’s nearly full
On the darkest cloudy day
The weather’s beautiful

When ugly words are common
She’ll sing a happy song
Her will to live increases
She knows she’s gotta be strong

Brave Heart….

Sometimes she gets so weary
And I take her in my arms
I tell her sweet and low
She will never come to harm

Then she looks me in the eye
And says thanks for the lift
You better be here when I get back
From working that graveyard shift

Brave Heart….
Track Name: Speed Queen
SPEED QUEEN
I met her by the bar
She just knocked me out
The way she sweetly smiled
I thought we hit it off

No no no
It wasn’t meant to be
No no no
She was gone like a summer breeze

Speed queen
Running through the night
You can’t catch her she’s too fast
I wouldn’t even try
Speed queen
Flashing in the light
The men are spinning round
They’re drunk and don’t know why

She came into my bed
And there she blew my mind
In the morning she was gone
She left this note behind

No no no
It wasn’t meant to be
No no no
I’m gone like a summer breeze

Speed queen
Running through the night
You can’t catch her she’s too fast
I wouldn’t even try
Speed queen
Flashing in the light
The men are spinning round
They’re drunk and don’t know why

They all say,
Baby baby baby tell me / what you want
Baby baby baby tell me what you need
Baby baby baby won’t you slow it down
Baby baby baby what should I believe?
Track Name: Trippin'
Words and music © 2016 Thomas Hauck
TRIPPIN'
The days went by and I lived my life
Doing the same old things
I saw no colors anywhere
I heard no robin sing
Felt like a hamster on a wheel
Going round and round
You gave me something good
Broke the chains that I was bound

I feel like I’m trippin’
Baby baby don’t stop
You make me feel like I’m trippin’
Baby baby don’t stop
Gonna climb to the bottom
Dive to the top
You make me feel like I’m trippin’
Baby baby don’t stop

Go my way
Is what you said to me
Take my hand
You will be so free
Go my way
Is what you said to me
Take my hand
We can live our dream

I feel like I’m trippin’
Baby baby don’t stop
You make me feel like I’m trippin’
Baby baby don’t stop
Gonna climb to the bottom
Dive to the top
You make me feel like I’m trippin’
Baby baby don’t stop

I feel so high ain’t coming down
To cold reality
When I’m with you I feel like
a pirate on the seas
Sailing neath the starry skies
To a distant shore
Together we can break away
To a future we explore
Track Name: Flash
Flash

Where it started no one’s really certain about
Messages are flying at the speed of light
A single thought begins to crystallize in my mind
Multiplied by thousands like a sign in the sky
It’s a flash ⎯ bringing us together as one
We can hear ⎯ a million voices harmonize
We can feel ⎯ how we move in perfect unity
It’s a flash ⎯ a shining moment in our lives

See it move across the sky
Got no time to wonder why
Can’t be stopped by mountain sides
Hold your head up feel the pride

Feel the love
Rain down from above (2x)

Thunderbolts in Paris London New York Beijing
A common realization of a new attitude
From Tripoli Damascus even Washington DC
Generating energy expanding our view

It’s a flash ⎯ bringing us to gether as one
We can hear ⎯ a million voices harmonize
We can feel ⎯ how we move in perfect unity
It’s a flash ⎯ a shining moment in our lives

See it move across the sky
Got no time to wonder why
Can’t be stopped by mountain sides
Hold your head up feel the pride

Feel the love
Rain down from above (2x)
