Bio

WOLVES OF RAIN is an upcoming group from Tasmania, recently formed in 2011. The band is based in Hobart and is the brain child of Miss Wolf Arrow Rain (singer songwriter), who has previously fronted such folk/rock bands as The Bursting Sun and The Black Swan. She also currently performs an electronic duo called Wolf Bird Radio. Wolf Arrow Rain is a prolific songwriter drawing on the influences of artists such as Leonard Cohen and Kate Bush amongst others. Her songs are more like a collection of stories. Some of these stories are born from personal experience and others are influenced by tales that she has read. The songs may be eerie, even sinister at times but they also deeply emotive. The music itself could be described as Dark Folk with overtones of traditional Irish and Gypsy music, although sometimes it borders on Country. Miss Rain will be supported by the following players; David Elliston on accordion, keys and guitar has been performing in various ensembles and bands around the country for many years. While playing at various festivals on the eastern seaboard of Australia he has become quite an icon in Tasmania. Brendan Kays on drums is very heavily influenced by traditional Irish music, Mento, and the psychedelic rock of the 70’s. He brings sounds of thunder to group with epic drum rolls and some Latin beats mixed in. When these fabulous players are blended together an unstoppable wall of harrowing sound and melody is born. This is Dark Folk at its best with a band this is sure to put on a fabulous performance not to be missed by anyone. Guest players with Wolves of Rain are Mr Nick Sullivan on guitar and Mr Nick Mercer on cello
