Me and Rob

Rainy has come a long way from the wind swept shores of west Wales where he first started out playing his music in surf clubs, pubs and festivals with his band ‘Little Gaia’. A move to Bath in 2007 saw the forming of his new band, ‘Rainy and The Dust’. With a warm heart and a cheeky smile these boys hit the live circuit running, performing at the likes of Glastonbury, supporting Reef at Lakefest alongside Toploader, Martin Taylor at Darvel, Sea Sick Steve and Ed Shearan at Oceanfest and playing many other stages across the UK. A regular on radio Cardiff they became favourites on BBC Radio Bristol and in 2011, amongst 1000’s of applicants; Rainy won the song writing competition for studio time in London, through PRS magazine. An honourable mention in Indie Music Reviewers ’50 acoustic artists not to miss’, Rainys music has been played on several BBC Shows including The Mark Forest show and Tom Robinsons BBC 6 music along side being selected for Tom Robinsons Fresh on the net mixtape.
Rainy’ s music has been described by many as G-Love meets Dave Matthews meets Paul Simon meets Crosby Stills & Nash – in truth it is essences of the all above… and something else entirely! The afro- Latin, rock and reggae influenced grooves, infused with the positivity of Rainy’s lyrics and tied together by an eclectic and laid back musical style, makes Rainy and The Dust one of the most watchable, listenable and dynamic bands you could hope to come across. Rainy is currently performing solo whilst recording a new album due for release in 2014.
