Thunder And Rain

Description

THUNDER AND RAIN With their roots in traditional bluegrass and folk, this Colorado-based five-piece has established a strong footing, appealing to the same audience as The Stray Birds, Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys and The Pine Hearts. Fusing melodic elements of rock and pop with acoustic instrumentation, they have created a very distinctive sound of their own. It took the release of their superb 2017-issued "Start Believing" album to stimulate the UK media into paying serious attention. Reviews were fittingly flattering and they got a load of radio exposure too. Now, they return with a brand new album to promote, and aiming to impress again. "Imagine The Stray Birds with a slightly bigger sound," declared Maverick magazine, while FolkRadioUK maintained they were "recalling the early days of 10,000 Maniacs." Over at RnR magazine, a writer who is taken more seriously than many, David Innes, told readers "There's something special happening here," while AmericanaUK recommended them as having "a lovely warm feel that will brighten your day."
