In 2000, Looks Like Rain hit the LA music scene with passion, energy, and promise. Since then, the band has steadily won awards, accolades, and most importantly, the loyalty of an ever-increasing fan base. With a signature blend of soaring songs, stunning originality and dynamic performances, Looks Like Rain delivers a commanding presence and breathtaking sound that is both familiar and yet completely new. With a seemingly endless draw of hits-in-the-making, Looks Like Rain is clearly poised to ascend to the next level.
In addition to playing top venues in Los Angeles, San Diego and Santa Barbara, Looks Like Rain debuted internationally with performances at the prestigious Toronto festival, Canadian Music Week. In Canada, the band was quickly snapped up by the Canadian media, making their television debut on “The Lofters,” U8TV’s answer to MTV’s “The Real World.”
Since then, the band has been asked to perform for everything from international charity events to reality TV shows. Events include “Voices of Women” concert, in which Looks Like Rain was proud to share billing with Sophie B. Hawkins. Looks Like Rain has also been spotlighted as one of Lenet Galloway’s “Kick Ass Women Artists” (91.9 FM), named Music Connection’s Top 25 Demos, featured in Women Who Rock magazine and hailed as one of the best band’s on the planet by New Music Weekly magazine. In 2004, Looks Like Rain was nominated for best Pop Artist by the Los Angeles Music Awards and their single “Big Black Car” was licensed for the hit television series Joan of Arcadia.
Looks Like Rain continues to write, record and perform at events and venues in Southern California and beyond.
Do you play live?
Yes, We play throughout southern California and love it.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It’s a new medium thats accessible to the rich, poor, black, white……Literally every “type” of person out there. It challenges bands to write good music if they want to move foward.
I occasionally purchased albums based off the cover as a child if it was “cool” looking, but now I can hear a band before I take a blind chance at them.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Depends on the terms
Our influences as a band are many. If you like female vocals in a band or just good music than we will do our best to satisfy your craving. It will take a moment of your time for a listen.
