Serious Rain formed from the ageing fragments of local bands Idlefish, Some Caught Napping and Big Idea. Held to gather with gaffer tape (the gigging musicians cure-all) and named after the first song they worked on 18 months ago  ….. which was actually written 30 years ago but thats another story.. And yes, we did that thing where you add  up the bands collective years of experience; it came to 174 but we are not about to let that slip out!
The plan for world domination this time is to blend acoustic and electronic instruments, rock and folk influences in attempts to capture something unique but catchy and positive that will drive us down the road to mega stardom.
Project commenced September 2017, writing, recording and arranging original songs and soundtrack at If Only Studios L.A. with two songs later mastered at Abbey Road Studios. Our bass player Ian has recently worked with Marlon Hodelin (who works as a part of Quincy Jones’ writing team and whose other credits include Adele and Mark Morrison) to sprinkle magic dust over own material in the mastering suite.
Band Line up is: Simon Cooper Drums/percussion backing vocals. Ian Burwell, bass guitar backing vocals. Wavey davey, vocals, electronic guitar vocals and backing vocals.
Robin van Zelst, acoustic guitar vocals. Open your ears but don’t look too closely!
So busy writing and recording we haven’t at time of going to press had the time to start work on a website so just enjoy what you hear and see on the day and look out for us later on the internettie.
