Lain's musical career was ignited when he joined the UK's premier gospel outfit, Nu Colours. The group had great success through the release of their debut album Unlimited, with hits such as 'Tears', 'Greater Love' and 'What in the World'. Their self-titled sophmore album enjoyed equal success with the singles 'Desire', 'Special kind of Lover' and 'Yes I Will'.
After the split of the group, Lain was introduced to the London-born musical outfit, Soul II Soul, where he met Jazzy B. Through this encounter, Lain learned the craft of songwriting, and earned the opportunity to write and feature on Soul II Soul's Volume 7 album, Time for Change. During this time, Lain was introduced to the UK's premier house producer Wookie. Wookie's self titled album was released with five tracks co-written and featuring Lain, including the top ten single 'Battle' and 'Back Up'. Lain's most recent musical collaborations have included features on the broken beat N.S.M. album, electronica-dance producer Dobie and soulful-break beat outfit Northern Monkeys.
Lain's abilities do not stop at music. After training at the Weist Barron Acting School in NYC, Lain branched into acting, making his musical theatre debut in the original cast of The Harder They Come. He went on to spend two years in the hit London West End show We Will Rock You, where he go to meet and perform with the rock legend Brian May. His most recent theatre projects have been with the Mind The Gap theatre company in NYC, in the short play Unmanned, as well as his role of Judah in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the Sacramento Music Circus. Lain also found himself getting voiceover work, including the World of Warcraft Cataclysm video game.
