Biography

Four sassy, sexy, sultry singers from the suburbs of Sydney, Australia named Rachel, Amanda, Emily and Natalie put their names and collective talents together to form RAEN (pronounced Rain).

Starting their own label in the Land of Oz called Dorothy Records, they set about following the yellow brick road all the way to crack the hardest market in the World, the United Kingdom. Do they have the courage to defeat the wicked witch of the West? They certainly have the talent, so have a listen to their debut offering Áfter the Storm' recorded in Los Angeles with top producer Jeff Bova (Celine Dion) and you can decide.

Now signed to Scottish indie label Influx Music, the girls set their sights on London via LA to put the finishing touches on what is already being hailed as one of the freshest and most dynamic pop records of 2009.

Straight away the debut single ‘Drama Fanatic’ attracted the biggest DJs in the business and reaching #4 in the Music Week BREAKERS CHART and NO. 6 in the MAINSTREAM CHART. 'Drama Fanatic ' was playlisted on UK TV- programs The Box, The Chart Show, Tiscali UK Ltd/Home Choice, Flaunt TV, Gaydar, and added to VMX Dance. Already gathering underground club plays in London and Glasgow, it wasn't long before RAEN got the remix treatment from the boys of 7th Heaven and whose radio edit of the dance floor filler was so good it became the single. RAEN have reached over 50 000 people as a result of performing at popular London hot spots such Café De Paris, Astoria and Heaven, and in some of the biggest clubs around the UK from Cruz 101 in Manchester to Nightingales in Birmingham.

These talented, articulate young ladies have put together a fantastic collection of songs working with the best of the best in the UK & US to realise their vision of what the first globally successful, Australian girl group should be. Get on board now, because into every life, a little RAEN must fall.

Lyrics

Something 'bout the Music

Written By: F Richards/Qura Rankin/Jeff Bova/RAEN

SOMETHING BOUT THE MUSIC

You know you got it bad, when the bass drops and the melody takes over
And it feels so good, when your dancing to your favourite tune
And you want to play it over

PRE CHORUS
Get loose, let go, relax your mind,
Break free, just be, we’ve got all night
Its you and me lets have a good time
Ohh, Oh ohh

CHORUS
Something about the music, music
Makes my body weak, weak, weak
Something about the bassline
Makes my body overheat, heat
And I love everything you do to me
It makes me say
Oh
It makes me say
Oh

When im on the dancefloor
It feels so natural
When you feel the break in the beat
All you wanna do is move your feet, I like it
It’s the sweetest thing,
cant deny it

PRE CHORUS
Get loose, let go, relax your mind,
Break free, just be, we’ve got all night
Its you and me lets have a good time
Ohh, Oh ohh

CHORUS
Something about the music, music
Makes my body weak, weak, weak
Something about the bassline
Makes my body overheat, heat
And I love everything you do to me
It makes me say
Oh
It makes me say
Oh

MIDDLE 8
Nothing else matters
anymore
When your lost in the moment of the Flow
Just leave your cares behind
Let music take you high (oh)

CHORUS
Something about the music, music
Makes my body weak, weak, weak
Something about the bassline
Makes my body overheat, heat
And I love everything you do to me

The music, music,
The music
Oh it makes me weak
Something about the bass line
Bass line
Makes my body overheat
And I love everything you do to me

A NEW DAY

Written By: RAEN/QURA RANKIN/JEFF BOVA

New Day
VERSE 1.
The breeze is blowing gently and I can feel the sunlight
Beaming down brightly
A moment for me
A stillness in the air
Anticipating what lies ahead
A distant voice is calling
Telling me to see

CHORUS
This is a new day a new way a time to start living
A new day a new page
Wake me from my sleep

VERSE 2.
A warmth inside my body
Rushes to my mind
Let my spirit fly revealing what I have inside
I will rise above
Release into Love
Let my inhibitions slide
No holding back this time

Chorus x2

Bridge/middle 8
Only got one life
Only got one life to live
X3

Chorus x 6

The breeze is blowing gently and I can feel the sunlight

Wanted to fight for you
But you’ll never change
You love to play the joker

You never fought for me
And now I can see
I’m the one who’s stronger

CHORUS x2
No I wont be left in all these pieces
Now that you’ve come back for more
No I wont be left in all these pieces
And I don’t need your love
Baby Don’t You know

V2
Left me disappointed
So far down
Never thought I’d come round

Can’t mess with my mind
Won’t happen this time
Tired of the same sound

CHORUS x2 (with call back)
BRIDGE
No more lies
Im free of you

CHORUS x3

DRAMA FANATIC

Written By: SAMMY JAY/QURA RANKIN/JEFF BOVA

Drama Fanatic

Chorus

ALL It doesn’t have to be this way
We can work it out without the pain and the blame
Why you gotta be dramatic?
You just a drama fanatic
It doesn’t have to be like this
Why d’u have to fuss and fight and trip, I wish
You weren’t so over dramatic
You just a drama fanatic

Verse 1
EMILY
After all the screams and shouts
I can’t remember what this fight was about
Bound to be some stupid thing
That wasn’t even worth the energy spent

Pre
ALL
You know you’re such a drama queen
Acting like Shakespeare up in here
Your head is so MTV
You gotta get a grip on reality

Chorus

Verse 2
NATALIE
Maybe it’s a twisted rush
Why you can’t seem to hold it down enough
To hear the about the other side
So you’re dragging everyone along for the ride

Pre

Chorus

Let Her Know

Written By: Sammy Jay, Qura Rankin/Jeff Bova

Let Her Know

Verse 1

It’s all about the little things
Show her what affection is
It ain’t always ‘bout material things
It’s more about the time you spend

Honesty is what she likes
It don’t make her the jealous type
A woman wants to feel secure
With a man who truly knows her worth

Pre Chorus
Just one little word, she’ll give you the world
Can you imagine this
Treat you like a king, stand by you through anything
Boy make it happen

Chorus - (we are not singing low octave but still keep in there low in vol)

You gotta let her know
If your love is for real, make her feel like a queen
You better let it show
If the feeling is right, then let go of your pride
What a girl needs, what a girl really needs
Is a man you understands how she feels
You better tell her so
‘Cos she really deserves a little four letter word

Verse 2

Show her you appreciate
Woah
How she’s got your back always
Ooh
She ain’t trying to hold you down
hold you down
She just wants to know you’ll stay around

Pre Chorus
Just one little word, she’ll give you the world
Can you imagine this
Treat you like a king, stand by you through anything
Boy make it happen

Chorus - (we are not singing low octave but still keep in there low in vol)

You gotta let her know
If your love is for real, make her feel like a queen
You better let it show
If the feeling is right, then let go of your pride
What a girl needs, what a girl really needs
Is a man you understands how she feels
You better tell her so
‘Cos she really deserves a little four letter word

Ooh ooh
Yeah yeah

Just one little word she’ll give you the world
