The last year and a half was quite a flurry of activity for husband and wife songwriting team
George Friend and singer Laura Rain. Their smashing Motor City soul band Laura Rain and
the Caesars released a non-stop carousel of new singles, signed a UK record deal,
collaborated on a successful sample collection, took home three Detroit Music Awards, and
recorded their fifth full length album “Rise Again” to be released April 2022.
The pair navigated the pandemic working from home non-stop; writing, recording, and
collaborating with other artists. Landing a vinyl deal in the UK, and a placement with producer
Jermaine Dupri’s artist LaTheGoat on “You Wouldn’t Believe Me”, proved the songwriters they
were getting somewhere.
“The pandemic has been tough on everyone” says Rain. “We used our time wisely to connect
with others, and keep our music flowing. We write and record a lot of music at home, but
reaching out and collaborating really helped keep us focused. Without being able to perform
live, it felt good to be creating with others while stuck at home”. Both sides of this 45 are stunning, worth checking out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
