Blues N Boogie: The Rainbreakers
Thu 27 April 2017, 19:30 – 22:30 BST
Since forming in 2012, Rainbreakers have developed their sound into a fusion of dynamic elements, bridging the gaps between Blues, Rock, Pop and Soul, exemplifying a diverse and ever-growing musical palette. The songs can shift between gritty to delicate in an instant while the melodic and pop-like hooks combined with the raw and garage-esque backdrop forge an inspiring combination. Ultimately the band’s outlook is to produce authenticity, may that be lyrically or sonically, to create a sound that truly represents themselves as well as their experiences.
Since the release of their “Blood Not Brass” EP, Rainbreakers have found themselves being featured extensively throughout a variety of media platforms. The Blues Magazine and Blues and Soul magazine have each celebrated the band’s refreshing outlook on the blues/rock scene, while radio stations across the country and most notably The Paul Jones Show on BBC Radio 2 have all featured their songs respectively.
In the last year, Rainbreakers have reached new heights, with a string of live dates up and down the country supporting the likes of Corky Laing (Mountain), The London Souls, The Devon Allman Band and Laurence Jones. Their performance at this year’s Great British Rock and Blues Festival in Skegness saw them win the crowd vote on the Introducing Stage and gain a place on the Main Stage at next year’s festival. The bands efforts have even gained the attention of The British Blues Awards, who nominated Rainbreakers for The Barry Middleton Award for Emerging Artist 2016.
