2017 UK Blues Challenge Finalist.

2016 British Blues Awards Best Emerging Artist nominee.

Headline act, Blues Matters Stage, Great British Rock & Blues Festival.

Rainbreakers are without doubt one of the freshest new sounds in the UK blues rock and soul circuit. Employing a distinctive sound that embodies a fusion of dynamic musical elements bridging the gap between blues, rock, pop and soul, the Shrewsbury outfit launched themselves on the UK in 2016 with a string of live dates up and down the country supporting the likes of Corky Laing (Mountain) and The Devon Allman Band. Their performance at that year’s Great British Rock and Blues Festival in Skegness saw them win the crowd vote on the Introducing Stage and gain a place on the Main Stage for the 2017 festival. Their two EPs ‘Rise Up’ and ‘Blood Not Brass’ continue to be played extensively on radio stations across the UK.
