Thunder and Rain is an alternative country band from Golden, CO. They released their debut album, Holler Out, in the fall of 2015. They followed up with their EP, Run With You, in the summer of 2016. While the band made headway in the Colorado Bluegrass Scene, Run With You premiered their sound as a bonafide country/rock unit with pop hooks and powerful lead vocals.
The band is scheduled to release their sophomore studio album, Start Believing, in September 2017. The album will expand upon what the EP started- an exploration of rock and country music using bluegrass level acoustic musicianship. The album also features more infectious pop choruses sung by a soon-to-be world class diva. Originally a folk duo between Erinn Peet-Lukes (vocals/guitar) and Pete Weber (Mandolin), the band now includes Wisconsin native Ian Haegele (Bass) and Vancouver, BC native Chris Herbst(Dobro).
In their short run as a band, Thunder and Rain has captured a sound that accentuates their talents and is accessible to fans both young and old. There is depth and unexpected emotions in their unforgettable melodies, as well as wide range of subject matters and situations in their catalog of original songs. Thunder and Rain strives to put meaning back in modern country music.
