Biography

RAINBREAKERS are noted for their distinctively forlorn vocals and moodily contagious songs that explore the complex struggles of life. The U.K. based four-piece formed when Ben Edwards [lead vocals & guitar] put together a band with his brother Sam Edwards [on drums] and later finding friends Ash Milburn [on bass] and the truly phenomenal musician Charlie Richards [on lead guitar] to complete the vision the brothers had for a unique sound.

The band seeks to shape a musical marque for themselves as they continue to explore their unique brand of Rock and Soul and aim to cultivate the roots of their own introspective brand that's a subtle variety of brooding, English, roots-rock. Bottling the anger and frustration they witness in modern-day living and they siphon off their feelings into suitable musical containers that allow raw emotions to bleed out during passionate live performances and on high-quality recordings.

Having toured across the UK and mainland Europe, this tenacious four-piece from the West Midlands, have won over crowds with their unmistakable sound, sharing stages with artists such as The Temperance Movement, The Kris Barras Band, Samantha Fish, Devon Allman and Wille and the Bandits.

 

Rainbreakers have been playing to capacity crowds at iconic venues such as The 100 Club, The Borderline, The Sage and Rock City. Performances at festivals like the Great British Rock and Blues and Wilderness Festival have seen the band receive accolades including nominations for the UK Blues Challenge and Best Emerging Artist in The British Blues Awards. Cementing Rainbreakers status as one of the brightest acts to materialise in recent times.
