MusicMafia introduces Sunderland band Rayne


MusicMafia introduces Sunderland band Rayne

'Rayne' are one of the most exciting bands to emerge from the North East of England in recent years. An eye-catching album release in December 2011 and a spate of gigs across the country have set tongues wagging about this whirlwind alternative rock three-piece.

RAYNE hail from Sunderland and having made a name for themselves in their local region are starting to make waves on a nationwide level.  Drawing influences from a myriad of classic and contemporary bands, Rayne's anthemic rock sound been compared bands such as Muse, U2 and Angels and Airwaves.

Four times Battle of the Bands winners (at a national level), RAYNE were also runners-up at the 02 Live and Unsigned final (out of 10,000 bands). The band have raised in excess of £20,000 for charities and were awarded an 'outstanding contribution to music' award from a national music organisation after a public vote.

The band formed 16 years ago when the members were still at school, and these years of playing gigs and writing songs together have bonded them into an impressive musical unit. Their debut album 'The New enlightenment' is available to buy on iTunes - samples can be heard at

Rayne are:
Ben Potts -Bass guitar and vocals
Adam Dagg - Electric Guitar and Synth
Steven Naisbet - Drums and Samples

Get in touch if you like what you hear and can offer any kind of support to the band.
