ABOUT

New Rain may call the Great Smoky Mountains home, but their musical experience will take you on an acoustical journey through time and emotion. Having shared the stage or opened for Gregg Allman, Three Dog Night, Blood, Sweat Y tears, lacy J. Dalton and more, Gary's own "locomotive" style on his black 12-string is soulfully suited to his smoky voice. Blended with janes' dynamic, wide-ranging vocals and harmonies,, they are truly a magical duo that will remain in your head. With 5 cds, working on the 6th, of original music to their credit, their live performances span an amazing presentation of covers that keep audiences of all ages captured. To sum it all up and borrow a previous description of Gary and Jane Morris, "The combination of both voices together creates a seamless harmony that fits every song like a glove." And that is...NEW RAIN.
