Since forming in 2005, Rainmaker has logged hundreds of shows together, spreading their infectious grooves, strong songwriting, and family style vocal harmonies throughout California and beyond. Their most recent effort, Long Slow Fade, is a compelling combination of classic American Music with a distinctly modern lyrical perspective. Set against a backdrop of soulful, rootsy rock, much of Long Slow Fade laments the slow death of the analog era and explores the issues that characterize the digital age.
Since coming together as a quartet in 2005, Rainmaker has logged hundreds of shows and recording sessions together, developing an undeniable chemistry. They have appeared at festivals, theatres, and clubs in California, Oregon, Nevada, and Colorado. In 2007, they were named runnerup in Relix Magazine's Jamoff!, a national competition for unsigned bands. After catching a live Rainmaker show, Jim Greer, producer for Galactic observed, "They are one of the tightest bands I've seen in quite some time. Rainmaker is a band worth paying attention to."
