Hot off the back of their Irish tour announcement and with 3 No.1 hits on the iTunes Singer Songwriter Chart, and over 1 Million impacts on Irish radio, The Raines are back, with a summer release, their fourth single ‘Another Lover’ taken from their forth coming debut album.
The Raines (Ruth Dillon, Juliana Erkkonen and Yvonne Tiernan) launch their eagerly anticipated fourth single ‘Another Lover’ on Friday 20th May.
In what is fast becoming the recognisable sound of The Raines soaring vocal harmonies and sweeping strings, the Galway band effortlessly deliver the raw emotion of this universal theme in this original and emotive song.
‘Another Lover’ was recorded in various locations by Ivan O’Shea, Juliana Erkkonen and Cesar Benzoni featuring John O’Dwyer on Bass, Cesar Benzoni on Mandolin and Cormac Dunne on Drums. The award winning Producer Brian Masterson famous for his work with The Chieftains, Van Morrison, Willie Nelson and The Bothy Band, to name just a few mixed and mastered the track.
Speaking of their forthcoming Irish tour, Yvonne Tiernan says “We are thrilled to be kicking off our first Irish tour in Whelans Dublin on 3rd of June and taking the band on the road to play live around the country. The part we love most about being in The Raines, is playing our music to a live audience”.
‘Another Lover’ is out now across all of the major digital platforms.
The Raines comprises of Ruth Dillon (vocals, guitar, ukulele) who has toured and recorded with the legendary vocalist Dolores Keane, is a former member of The Molly Hicks, and has three solo albums of her own. Juliana Erkkonen (fiddle and vocals) has been at the fore front of the Americana musical scene in Ireland and has released 7 albums with a diverse range of acts and Yvonne Tiernan (vocals/ukulele) who has toured as lead singer with ‘The Chieftains’.
