About Rita Payne

"Stories from a Suitcase is an assured set of songs, delivered with panache. It's hard to credit this is a début recording, the songwriting is that good." R2 Magazine 2013 A truly unusual sound, great harmonies and phenomenal guitar work.” Andy Kershaw, BBC Journalist 2013 "Audience reaction said it all, not one person left the room during their set and I can't ever remember a support selling so many C.D.'s, signing so many autographs and posing for so many photo's. Charming isn't a word I use very often but that describes their stage presence perfectly. Great songs, easy going but professional, an absolute joy to work with." Chris Wilson, promoter Greystones Sheffield, Sheffield City Hall and formally The Boardwalk Sheffield. "Doncaster's finest songwriters" Kully Thiari, Managing Director CAST Doncaster "...their delicate harmonies work beautifully; The subtle musical backdrop working in perfect tandem with the breathtaking vocal interplay and well-written lyrics. I predict a great future for this Rita Payne." Alan Cackett, Maverick Magazine 2013 “Rita Payne are firm favourites at our venue, they have played here on a number of occasions. I have never seen a support act make such an impact, or sell so many CD's to people seeing them for the first time.” Brian Chudley, promoter Town Hall Live, Kirton-in-Lindsey. "Rita Payne are capable of subtle magic. They've already pinpointed their strong points and there's little doubt that future releases will see greater refinement of their talents. It's the duo's vocals that are the main attraction here; Scutt and Sowerby's vocals which harmonise throughout, blend excellently with Scutt's sweetness and control, complimenting the occasional hints of grit in Sowerby's tuneful, adaptable croon. This début release sets out the Rita Payne stall with impressive purpose." - Ian Fildes, Americana UK, Feb 2013 Rita Payne blend superb harmonies with their excellent song writing skills. Rhiannon’s beautifully skillful guitar playing perfectly compliments Pete’s sonorous lead vocals and together they create a wonderfully balanced and vibrant performance that can bring an audience to the edge of their seats. Both Rhiannon and Pete are very personable characters and this becomes clear to the audience when listening to their friendly on-stage banter which adds to the magic of their performances. I can thoroughly recommend that you buy a copy of their début album ‘Stories From A Suitcase’, to sample their successful formula for yourself, but you need to get along to one of their live gigs to really appreciate this talented young duo. It is my considered opinion that Rita Payne are destined for ‘greatness’. Look out for the suitcase!” Keith Ansley, Wath Festival Chair, 2013. "How the f**k am I supposed to follow that?" Vin Garbutt, 2014 "...the best opening act I've ever had..." - Rod Picott 2012 "An incredibly talented band with glowing stage presence and a strong and tight set. Very professional and an absolute pleasure to work with." - Amy Brown, Promoter Candy Bar Soho, London Pride 2013 "Rita Payne have brought some sunshine to my life" - David Burns, BBC Introducing Humberside 2012 "...shit hot..." - A Drunk Guy 2012 "Incorporating progressive bluegrass accents and haunting country influenced melodies, Lincolnshire band Rita Payne emit an Anglo-American sound that has never been more popular." - Olly Cromack, 'Blog on the Rails' 2013 Rita Payne's new album 'We're Getting There Aren't We?' is available to download now from iTunes via: www.ritapaynemusic.com
