Years in the record business
Songwriter and Vocalist
Rain Perry’s “Beautiful Tree” is the theme for the CW Network’s “Life Unexpected,” where she also had the surreal pleasure of appearing as herself in a music festival episode alongside Sarah McLachlan and Ben Lee. Rain is a Grand Prize winner of both the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the ROCKRGRL Discoveries Competition, as well as a Telluride Troubadour finalist.
She has released four albums on her own Precipitous Records, as well as writing and touring a solo play about her unusual childhood called “Cinderblock Bookshelves: A Guide For Children of Fame-Obsessed Bohemian Nomads.”
A high point: hearing Nanci Griffith’s sweet voice on Tom Russell’s version of her song “Yosemite.” A not-so-high point: when it made the radio EP but not the album.
In addition to her career as a singer-songwriter, Rain also promotes concerts in Ojai and teaches songwriting, specializing in classes for people who harbor a secret desire to write songs but need encouragement and tools. She also hosts bi-monthly “Secret Songwriter Suppers,” where she serves a meal and performs a show on a theme.
To continue to write, record and perform the best songs she can, and seek placements for them in film and TV and with other artists.
