rebecca-rain-web2For Rebecca Rain, there are three things that matter most – family, the small town she grew up in, and music. While that list may read like different things, in a very real way they are all simply parts of the same whole that drives her passion. That’s because there’s something about growing up in a small town… The lines between family, friends and strangers are drawn thinner and lighter – strangers become friends, friends become family, and family is inseparable from one’s self.
Part of the package of growing up with the small town life for Rebecca was a very early exposure to country music. Drawing influences from childhood favourites like Loretta Lynn, June Carter Cash, and Patsy Cline, Miss Rain has crafted a sound that is equally modern and traditional, all delivered by a voice that is hauntingly pure, and with a reflective songwriting style wise beyond her years.

“Being immersed in a musical family from a young age shaped who I am today.” says Rebecca “When I sing about love, loss, heartache or longing I’m singing about the experiences that we’ve all been through together. And, when it’s time to turn up the volume and get the boots stomping a little harder, growing up as the only sister to 3 brothers sure didn’t hurt.”

With all the places that Rebecca’s music has, and will continue to take her, she is grounded by the strength of her roots, and in knowing that eventually, all roads lead to home..

Thank you all for the birthday wishes! I'm really grateful to say I've made it to 28 and that music is still such a huge part of my life. To be able to share something with you that has given me so much joy for 15 years now is the greatest birthday gift. I began this journey in my hometown of Wasaga Beach when I was 12 and never imagined I would have accumulated so many great memories writing, recording, performing, and sharing the studio and stage with so many talented and inspiring fellow musicians years later. I have my friends, family, and people I've never even met but have connected with on social media to thank for giving me the courage to keep singing with your kind support and encouragement. Im looking forward to starting a new year and sharing more music with you all 🎶💕 #somuchlove #wasagabeach #canadianmusic #indiemusic #canadiancountry #thankyouu #sing #singersongwriters #love❤️ #findyourpassion #workhardplayharder #musicianslife #beachlife #beachwaves #bluesky💙 #bigworld #newage #28thbirthday #sandytoes #inspiredliving #musicianslife #canadiangirl #proudtobecanadian #countryliving #thesimplelife #loveyouguys ...
