Achievements: DelRain's origianal song "Moment of Silence" accepted and permanently archived in the National 911 Memorial and Museum.

Creating a unique sound and feel in today’s music world is difficult, yet DelRain has gloriously achieved it with their original music. The band comes to audiences ready to take them on a journey. Songs with soulful, yet straightforward lyrics born of their authors’ life stories, stir emotions. Sweet vocal and instrumental harmonies dance with acoustic strings to wash over listeners. Upbeat rhythms express the attitudes and energy of the composers. The music is wonderfully diverse and speaks to people of all ages and lifestyles.

DelRain is an acoustic trio that incorporates bluegrass, folk, rock and country into their original music. The line-up is as follows; Paula Cadden-Glodzik on vocals, guitar and mandolin, Mark Sillaman on vocals, guitar, mandolin and harmonica, and Michelle Sillaman on vocals, violin and mandolin. DelRain is being well received at festivals, the most notable being the Bethlehem Musik Fest 2009. Recent achievements also include the DelRain song “Moment of Silence” being included in the artist registry at the 9/11 National Monument and Museum at the World Trade Center were it will be permanently archived.

Growing up in the coal-cracking region of NE Pennsylvania in a large, very musical, Irish family has given Paula plenty of history to draw from. When still in high school, she and her sister opened for a national recording act that would later book them to open all their local shows. Paula started a family, and raised four children. Her gift for music and songwriting never waned. Now there is a beautiful, calm, and introspective aspect to her craft that only comes from years of honing skills.

Like Paula, Mark also hales from a large, musical family. His father expected all members of their clan to participate in his front porch “picking sessions”. Mark owned his first acoustic guitar by age seven and was fronting a rock band in high school. Restless, he left Lancaster PA and headed west across the country. Performing as a solo act as he traveled the country, eventually settling in Arizona. As front man and primary songwriter for a heavy metal/ grunge band, he gained experience as they toured throughout the West. Mark returned to PA in 1994, to put his focus on his acoustic roots and his song writing. The result of his effort is an impressive book of multi colored songs and a musical prowess that captures attention.

Michelle grew up in rural New Jersey studying classical violin and cello. She aspired to be a singer even at a young age, encouraging a third grade friend to walk with her up the street singing so they could be discovered. Starting in her teenage years, she found interest in writing poetry and short stories, but not so much classical music. In 1995, she and Mark crossed paths and quickly became a team. Inspired and encouraged by Mark and his father, she picked up the mandolin and then the violin. Song writing comes naturally to Michelle, and her enthusiasm and persistence has allowed her talent to be felt.

DelRain is based in North Eastern Pennsylvania. Currently DelRain is collaborating on a new project. Together the trio has a tight bond that can be heard in their voices and their instruments, transcending individuals to create a magnificent whole!
