Fusing powerful song writing with musical flare, Hatful of Rain combine their English, Celtic and American inspirations to great effect on their new album. Titled ‘Songs of the Lost and Found’ the band’s third album will be officially released on 1st July.
The album is full of original songs that speak of ‘today’; responding to the modern world’s experiences of loss, redemption, migration, identity and austerity. Musically the four-piece band blends seamlessly with a cast of additional musicians using their familiar line-up of voice, fiddle, mandolin, guitar and bass.
Formed in 2011, Hatful of Rain was quickly signed to the Folk/Americana label Union Music Store. The band’s first album ‘Way Up on the Hill’, led to a session on the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Bob Harris Saturday show. A second album, ‘The Morning Key’ followed in 2014 and was warmly received by the roots music world with the Hatfuls nominated to perform at the Americana Music Awards in Nashville and as Best Group in the Spiral Earth Awards.
In 2016 the band set about exploring the music that had influenced them in their early musical careers. Released on their own label Long Way Home Music the EP brought together new arrangements of traditional UK and US songs.
Hatful of Rain will be on tour in June and July to support the release of ‘Songs of The Lost and Found’. The band excel at live performance and have developed the blue grass harmonising style using one microphone for all four voices to create an intimate and engaging atmosphere.
