Blues rockers The Family Rain kick off their 2023 musical journey with a highly anticipated mini UK tour, appearing at Newcastle’s Cluny 2 on Sunday 29th January. Comprised of three brothers: William, Ollie and Timothy Walter, their harmonic diversity creates a unique soundscape, and their live show is spirited and energetic. They’ve amassed a firm following thanks to an array of notable performances, including supporting The Rolling Stones at Hyde Park.

After splitting up in 2016, then announcing their return in November 2019, The Bath-based brothers have continued to release dynamic singles which have firmly embedded their musical style in the indie rock world, with more of an emphasis on heavy rock features including distinct guitar riffs and vocal effects. In particular, the tracks Death In Slow Motion and Head In A Hornet’s Nest resemble the likes of chart-botherers Arctic Monkeys thanks to massive choruses and stadium-sized melodies.
