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.

I'm obsessed with the countryside: woods, forests, fields, lakes, mountains. I'm really into folk music and folklore. But more so I'm into electronic music. I'm into bands that have both aspects, like Boards of Canada is a perfect example. You could listen to that type of music running through a woods. It's kind of what I wanted to achieve.”
