Danny Rains

Danny RainsSongwriting once cast a spell on a wayward youth named Danny Rains. It sent him stumbling headfirst into a mystifying underground world of melodies, harmonies, and words. Now, many years since, he still returns to that deep well of unknowable truths. In the early morning dark, he often finds himself staring into a fog of half-remembered dreams, feeling around the bed for a pencil or a guitar, hoping to capture a little piece of that world to bring back with him to the other side.

He has made 5 independent albums so far. Often, he writes and performs all of the parts himself, but sometimes he collaborates with other musicians. His recordings are produced in his studio, in a small apartment in Little Rock, Arkansas. His sole spiritual advisor is the ghost of his childhood pet parakeet, Sam.

In Jamaica, them always have throwback riddims, recycled old beats, and the hardcore reggae scene is always present. You have faster stuff like the more commercialized stuff, but you always have that segment of music that is always from the core, from the original root of it.”
