Multi award winning country duo ‘Raintown’ from Glasgow, Scotland are fast gaining the reputation as one of the hottest Country acts in Europe. The couple, Paul Bain and Claire McArthur had an exciting 2012 which included supporting Wet Wet Wet at their 25th Anniversary concert in front of 15,000 fans with their 7 piece band, winning two Scottish New Music Awards, including – Record of the Year and successfully releasing a Christmas single – Still Believe (Love this Time of the Year) - that saw them top the Amazon Hot Country Releases in December.
They made history, as the first ever Scottish act invited to perform at the CMA Fest 2011 - Global Artist Party in Nashville and were invited back in 2012 to represent the UK once again at the biggest Country Music festival in the world. There is no doubting that Raintown are already creating quite a buzz.
Fusing their passion for Country Music with the eclectic musical influences of their homeland, Raintown are continuing the tradition of exciting new music to emerge from Glasgow. Their catchy hooks and dynamic male/female harmonies are delivered with a passion and style that demands attention, while their carefully crafted lyrics articulate some very human emotions in a sincere, ‘heart on the sleeve’ kind of way. This is highlighted in their debut album, ‘Hope in Troubled Times,’ which was acclaimed by critics and fans alike.
Raintown is certainly the sound of a duo staking their claim in the world of Country Music and in the process, redefining our expectations of what to expect from a European based act. It moved one commentator to say, ‘we could be witnessing the first European Country Superstars in the making.’
