Rain sign with GEP
published on: Sunday, 13 September 2020.
GEP are really pleased to announce we’ll be working with old friends John Jowitt and Andy Edwards in their new venture Rain to release their debut album ‘Singularity’.
The complete Rain line-up is:
Rob Groucutt - Vocals, Keys, Guitar
Andy Edwards - Drums
John Jowitt - Vocals, Bass
Mirron - Vocals, Guitar
John Jowitt: “It’s been about ten years since I played with Andy, in both IQ and Frost - it’s a really instinctual rhythm section. With Rain, Andy has had the chance to show what an all-round musician he is. Rob and Mirron are both amazing musicians, songwriters and singers, and it’s just a great combination. I’m really pleased that our old friends at GEP have shown faith in the band - it’s one of those albums that I would have bought if I’d not been on it. It’s prog, Jim, but not as we know it.”.
Andy Edwards: “Rain isn't a project, it's a band and we want to make more and more music. This is the dream team as far as I am concerned - everyone is very talented but in different areas and so the whole is greater than the parts. And Rain is pure prog too, no ifs or buts, it does everything it says on the tin. This album has been one of the easiest albums I have ever made, everyone loves what everyone else does, it's been a joy having all these ideas come in!”
‘Singularity’ will be released on GEP in November.
